At Reed First School the Early Years covers the period of time the children spend in Nursery and Reception. The class teacher is Mrs Tansley, who is supported by Mrs Chisnall.
We operate a flexible induction programme so that the needs of each individual child can be met.
Our standard morning sessions for any nursery aged child can be accessed by those wishing to claim up to 15 hours.
From September 2017, working families who meet a national criteria may be eligible for 30 hours free childcare. To find out if you are eligible and how to register, please visit this website www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/parents
As a school we have extended our Nursery provision into the afternoons for all 3 and 4 year olds. Childcare will be available from 8.45-3.15 Monday to Friday at a cost of £3.00 per day for eligible families, to cover lunch and playtime. Those parents who are not eligible for the 30 hours funding may pay privately for afternoons.
In our Early Years unit we have created an environment which supports, encourages and stimulates the children to become independent learners.
