Reception Class – It’s Only The Beginning

Your child’s education starts here.  Rye’s lively, happy, and nurturing reception class for girls and boys aged four to five offers the best possible beginning to school life.

Our holistic approach to learning means we understand each child as an individual. We understand their needs, interests, strengths, and weaknesses to allow us to tailor their learning and fully support them in whatever way they need.

In these formative years, your child’s happiness and interest are imperative as they start their learning journey. Rye’s unique atmosphere provides a rich and varied curriculum that is surrounded by engaging activities to allow each child to be curious in their learning from this early age.

Our highly experienced and empathetic staff will ensure that your child is immersed in the seven key areas of learning during their Reception year.

We welcome you to come and experience Reception for yourself, and even meet our pet Hamster! Arrange your personal visit here.

What our Reception children love…

  • Running and playing in our beautiful 12-acre gardens and woodland
  • Toasting marshmallows and making mud pies in weekly Forest School sessions
  • Learning to communicate with others in a supportive, happy environment
  • Singing in weekly music link sessions
