Structure

The school is structured into 3 classes by age, however these age groups serve as a guideline only. When moving children into classes we consider how settled and confident they are and their level of independence.

Red Class. The youngest group are 2-3 years on entry, this is a small class where they can develop their confidence and independence in a smaller group and becoem familiar with the routines.
Blue Class. The next group are 3-4 years old. By this stage they will have developed a certain amount of independence and be familiar with the routines.
Yellow Class. These children are also 3-4 years old, this class is primarily aimed at those children who have already spent a year in the Blue class to enable them to feel a sense of progression.
