The crèche “Busy Bees” is an integral part of Mayville School, providing exceptional care for the under 2’s. Innovative and engaging activities, both inside and outside, encourage the children to explore, investigate and use their imagination.
We recognize that it is our responsibility to care for your child so they feel safe, happy and secure. Our qualified team work closely with you to ensure that your child settles in well and feels comfortable and confident.
Our Pre-school curriculum encompasses the areas stipulated in United Kingdom’s Early Years Foundation Years (EYFS) which will nurture your child’s interest and help them to be well-prepared for Primary.
The areas of learning are:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Your child will also start to recognize and write their own name and develop their communication, literacy and numeracy skills through a combination of adult-led and child-led activities.
RECEPTION (Ages 4 – 5)
During the year, your child will continue to build upon the basic skills already established in Pre School. At this stage, emphasis is placed on developing independence – each child is expected to take increasing responsibility for their own belongings, demonstrate care for themselves and for others and begin to understand that there are consequences to actions. The class teacher carefully plans exciting termly topics, linked to sessions in literacy, numeracy and knowledge of the world to enhance the children’s learning.
Key Stage 1 – Years 1 and 2 (Ages 5 – 7)
Exploration and Learning the Basics
A more structured approach to the day helps children continue their development with learning how to read, write and count in English. We still encourage children to explore and play, and discover the world around them and relate their findings in words and numbers.
Key Stage 2 – Years 3 to 6 (Ages 7 – 11)
Communication and Application of Skill
Children are naturally curious, and in Mayville School, we encourage them to learn about things that interest them while consolidating their numeracy and literacy skills. At this stage, we teach children how to apply these basic skills to other subject areas – such as Science, Art and History.
