Harlequin have a bright, cosy classroom, connected to the Ducklings Nursery classroom, and with direct access to our secure outdoor play resources. Harlequin children have their own cloakroom and dedicated toilet facilities immediately adjacent to the classroom. Independence is encouraged and nurtured through self-registaration, allocated spaces for drinks, Reading Packets and invidual labelled drawers for children's personal belongings.
For children moving up from our Nursery this is the easiest possible transition: their familiar nursery environment is just next door, but they now have a wealth of new toys and activities to explore, and seated learning areas as they begin to spend time each day learning those all important core reading, writing and number skills. For new children joining us from other childcare settings, or from primarily home-based childcare, the close connection between our Nursery and Reception helps them to feel at ease.
