The children are really enjoying playing with the dinosaurs at the moment. They are sharing really well.
Queen's Kindergarten sits wonderfully within the Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate Early Years Department, which strives to provide an enabling, positive environment. Within our specialist Kindergarten area there are three rooms separating the children by age and mobility. The free-flow arrangement means all children are familiar with all staff and rooms but that they have a specific area tailored to their needs.
Chapter House Early Years judged ‘Outstanding’ across all areas by Schools Inspectorate 2019
The Chapter House Early Years was praised for its 'excellent care and learning experiences that the setting provides’. The glowing ISI report follows a three-day inspection in February this year, with inspectors observing every aspect of school life.
The key findings for the Early Years Foundation Stage provision are set out in the report:

The children and staff enjoyed the first Welfare Walk of the term on Friday.
Our busy, little children have been very excited by the story of ‘The Gingerbread Man’ this week.
Kindergarten were very excited to build their new picnic bench, we all took it in turns listening extremely well to instructions. We were all very happy with the end result.
A very big welcome to all the children in EYFS. We have spent the first two days getting used to new faces, new names and new routines!
The children have all really enjoyed going to Chapter House library; looking through some lovely books and choosing which books they wanted to take home to read with parents.
