Nursery and Reception

The Chapter House Nursery and Reception follows on from our Queen's Kindergarten. It continues to support a child's early development through the power of play and social interactions, capturing their individual interests and encouraging learning through them. 

Building upon the EYFS curriculum, the Nursery and Reception years provide the opportunity for children to learn a modern foreign language and to undertake expert music tuition. Pupils can also enjoy participating in sports, including regular swimming, dance and multi-skill sessions and take full advantage of our excellent sporting facilities, outdoor learning areas and playgrounds.
