Here at Ley Hill. children in Nursery and Reception are supported to thrive in our EYFS unit. Each year group has their own classroom and they share an outdoor learning space. The staff work together to ensure all children develop at their own pace and build strong relationships with all the children.
Have a look at the pictures (below) and our class pages (above) to see how our children enjoy their learning experiences with us.
