Mixed age groups are ideal for the early years. The younger children are inspired by the older children, and the older children learn leadership skills and cement their learning by showing the younger children what to do.
We organise the children’s learning activities in small groups, so the children will always be given age-appropriate opportunities for development.

The exact division within the classes will depend on the number of children we have in the school. We are able to calculate this once we know how many children are leaving for primary school and the ages of the new children joining us. Parents can help us by giving us an early indication of when they think they will leave and then confirming it once they have accepted a place in their next school.
