Foundation Stage 2 (Reception)

At John Rankin, children are at the heart of everything we do.

In order to develop as independent, life-long learners, we passionately believe that children deserve to experience high-quality learning experiences every day.

In Foundation Stage, children learn through play, both indoors and outdoors. Our learning environment is set up with various activities that provide opportunities for structured, purposeful play, with great educational value. Children play and develop their emotional, social and scientific skills all at the same time.
