Here at Dormers Wells the children in Reception learn through play, exploring their interests and adult led focus activities. At present we are operating a staggered start and finish time due to the current situation. 
Drop off is from 8.40am and pick up is 3.35pm
Similar to our Nursery, Reception follows the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum to develop their skills and knowledge. Reception also prepares our children for more structured learning in KS1 and gives the children the opportunity to express themselves as members of our Dormers Wells family.
