Welcome to Reception


Learning through play, each and every day...


A very warm welcome to Collingwood Foundation Stage!  We pride ourselves on offering an enriched curriculum where the children are encouraged to be inquisitive about the world around them.


At Collingwood, we firmly believe that the Early Years are crucial in forming the secure foundations for lifelong learning. Our Nursery and Reception children are encouraged to develop as individuals, think big and look far.


Learning within Early Years is based on each child as an individual and is personalised to suit the many varied needs of the children. Adult-led activities and child-led play opportunities, both indoors and outdoors, ensure our children receive a wide and varied range of learning experiences. Activities and learning experiences are carefully planned to ensure children build knowledge  across the seven areas of learning. 


These are broken down into three prime areas of learning:


  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language


And four specific areas of learning:


  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design


We believe every child is unique and continuously strive to develop resilient, confident and capable learners. Focus on developing positive relationships helps our children become strong and independent. Well considered enabling environments  are crucial in the development of each child alongside the strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers.
