Moving up to Reception

Moving up to Reception from Sandcastles Nursery is a very smooth process.

In their final term at Nursery, our girls and boys are enjoying more and more time as part of the main school community. They attend school assemblies, enjoy learning with main school staff, and become very familiar with life in school.

There is also a gentle increase in the amount of structured learning and purposeful play activities, as we prepare the children for the new challenges and opportunities ahead. When they do move up, it will be with their own particular friendship group, and into small class. The whole process is carefully designed so that the transition from Nursery into Reception is seamless and entirely stress free, and ensures that your child is happy and raring to go from day one.
