Little Learners (pre-Reception provision for 3-4 year olds)

Little Learners is the pre-Reception provision for 3 – 4 year olds i.e. the year your child turns 4 years old (from 1st September – 31st August). Every 3 year old is eligible for 15 hours of funded provision. If you are eligible for 30 hours funding, this can be shared over more than one setting.

Little Learners take place Monday mornings from 9am – Midday and all day Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:00am – 3pm. They have a dedicated member of staff and join in with the EYFS provision in Praa Sands class. This provides a smooth transition to full time Reception when they are school age.

Children reach full time school age the year they turn 5 years old (from 1st September – 31st August).

Reception children are part of Praa Sands class and enjoy a discrete Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum with the class teacher and EYFS learning support adult whilst also sharing their day with year 1 pupils in the year above. This provides a smooth transition from EYFS to KS1 (infant provision).

EYFS pupils have continuous access to all seven areas of learning both indoors and outdoors. The outdoor area is large, bright and secure and is surrounded by the school playing field and the environmental area.
