New to Early Years

We would like to welcome all our new children and families to Early Years (Nursery and Reception) at Willow Tree.

We understand that when your child starts school for the first time, it is a very important step and you may have some concerns - but we are looking forward to getting to know you and your child and for them to begin their school jouney with us.

Once you have been offered a place with us, you will be invited to come and meet the staff and see our setting.  We offer a range of activities to support the transition process including stay and play sessions, home visits and a staggered timetable.

There are many skills that children need to be ready for school.  Look at our 'Ready for school' checklist and see how you can help.

Here are some useful websites that offer advice and activities that you may find helpful:
