Welcome to Reception!
Welcome to the Reception at Downs View! We provide a fun, stimulating and ever-changing environment in which your child can grow and learn safely. Our curriculum is based on your child's interests alongside opportunities which we feel will broaden their knowledge and open their minds, giving them the experiences and learning opportunities they will remember and build upon throughout their lives. We aim to build solid foundations for life-long learning in a fun, purposeful and engaging way which encourages your child to continue their education with confidence, independence and most of all a love of learning.
