Welcome to our Reception page here at Marvels Lane. Here at Marvels Lane, we very much value and recognise the importance of children learning through play and exploration and we are proud to say that this is very much reflected in our Early Years environment. Our Reception builds upon and extends the learning children have started either in Nursery or at home, through carefully planned free flow and adult led activities.

The whole curriculum is centered around the children and encourages them to take responsibility for their own learning in order to become independent, confident and resilient learners.

Please view our videos below for more information about the Reception environment and staff, and for some parent reviews of the school.
