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.
All nursery aged children are eligible for the standard morning sessions – up to 15 hours per week, free of charge.
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
If your child is eligible for the extended 30 hour funding, we can provide nursery provision from 8.45am – 3.15pm, costing £3.10 per day to cover the cost of lunch. This is available the term after your child’s 3rd birthday.
In addition, we can provide nursery provision the term of your child’s 3rd birthday, at a cost of £5 per hour plus £3.10 for lunch.
In our Early Years unit we have created an environment which supports, encourages and stimulates the children to become independent learners.
