Our Reception. Our Family. Our Community
At Whinstone, the EYFS forms the underpinning and overarching framework for learning and development for all children in our care. We intend to enable our children to learn holistically through a combination of access to quality first teaching and through play, experimentation, and exploration while making friends, developing social skills and cultural capital. We aim to ensure that every child has an excellent start to school life, achieving and making progress across each aspect of the EYFS Profile.

This video will show you around our Reception area and introduce you to our Reception staff.
We have made a video for the parents of new starters to our Reception, due to the current situation with Covid19. We hope that this helps to answer some of your questions about routines and expectations in Reception.
What Our Families are Saying
“Fabulous friendly staff, great relaxed teaching area. My daughter skipped every day into Reception she loved it! She had a great year of learning and growing up. We could not fault your teaching.” Julie Chapman“Honestly the best start for my little boy. He was only just 4 when he joined so the transition was a little difficult but the staff were great, especially Mrs Artley and Mrs Holder. He ended the year really loving going to school. I couldn’t have asked for more. Brilliant!!” Fiona Teasdale

‘Whinstone has given my little boy the very best start in his school life. I was nervous on his first day of nursery, but he settled in quickly and loved every minute of his time there.’
