EARLY LEARNING SCHOOL

3 MONTHS TO RECEPTION (4+)


We would like to welcome you to our beautiful Early Learning School where the serious business of early education thrives in every classroom.

Our days are based around a ‘rhythm of the day’ instead of a structured timetable. Children are invited to join in with a variety of activities that are designed to allow each child to reach the next step in their development. We believe that children are confident and capable learners from birth and the education of our children is of the utmost importance. Each room is designed to meet the needs of the particular age of child and to be a home-from-home, offering a nurturing environment that ensures every child feels comfortable and happy whilst learning in all areas.


We believe that we are ‘doing it differently’. The children are welcomed into each room personally by the educators who support each child in the transition between home and school. The door into the Early Learning School is the ‘hinge’ between the two most important worlds in your child’s life. 

The rooms are calm, beautiful and organised. Each space is carefully resourced with natural objects matched with palettes of paint or jars of crayons with the intention of inspiring each child to explore colour, shape and pattern. Construction areas have the beginning of a building to extend and motivate children into their own buildings and imaginative play. In each corner of each room there is a spark of interest waiting for a child to take this forward and direct their own learning and answer their own questions.

We inspire the children to have confidence and imagination towards how they will proceed with their activities, to become creative and critical thinkers who can learn independently. This is what we believe is the most important part of the education we provide at the Early Learning School. Please do come and visit us, taking part in an individual tour so that we can demonstrate to you how all of our children are learning and enjoying their experiences in our school.

A FEW WORDS

FROM OUR ELS HEADS


"For tiny babies to school age children, Reddam House Berkshire is an exciting and inspiring place to grow and to learn. It is impossible, on a static page, to reflect the genuine buzz of excitement in our classrooms, or to show you the creative curiosity sparked in our children, to show you the pure joy the exhibit daily as they discover new things, but we hope that the glimpse of our daily lives in the pages below will allow you an insight into our school and our family. Please do take time to look at all Stages to see how the Reddam House philosophy underpins the nurture and development of every child, through all age groups."

A WARM COMMUNITY

CONFIDENT AND CAPABLE LEARNERS

EMERGENT CURRICULUM

A WARM COMMUNITY


We love having families in our community and take every opportunity to show off the amazing work being done by your wonderful children. Online learning journals, parent evenings, reports and regular stay and play sessions are a welcome addition to the day to day contact parents have with your child's educators. In addition, picnics, shows, information events and sports day bring our families together to enjoy the richness of the Reddam House Berkshire Community.

CONFIDENT AND CAPABLE LEARNERS


We encourage independence from day one in the belief that children are capable and willing to be a part of their own educational journey. Growing independence underpins confidence, self-belief and resilience - all valuable attributes as children grow through to our Juniors

EMERGENT CURRICULUM


Your child has questions, knowledge, interests and passions which ignite their love of learning. To harness this innate curiosity all of our terms begin with a broad starting point from which to jump into an immersive curriculum experience driven by the children. Core skills are woven by our experienced teachers into the curriculum which emerges week on week, and often day by day, alongside a rigorous phonics and maths programme. This emergent curriculum means that your child's journey is completely unique - just like they are!
