Sherborne House Pre-Reception gives children aged three to four years, and their parents, the best possible introduction to education and school. Our experienced and caring staff create a nurturing, stimulating and playful environment, fostering independence and creativity in our young learners.

Our Pre-Reception children will have opportunities to visit the Reception children, allowing them to interact with older children and become more familiar with other teachers in the Early Years setting.

When the children are Pre-Reception age, we encourage them to begin to learn in a more formal style. The curriculum becomes increasingly focused towards writing, early mathematics and forming relationships. Read more about the curriculum here.

Our Story Adventure events are a great way to gain insight into how we teach the children in Pre-Reception. Find out more details about these events here. Parents can also enjoy a tour of Early Years by clicking here.

Starting Pre-Reception for the first time is a big step for both you and your child, and it’s natural to feel anxious about how you are going to cope with the transition.
