Starting school is a big milestone for children. It is a time of new beginnings, new challenges, and new opportunities. For parents, it can also be a time of mixed emotions. We are excited for our children to start their next chapter, but we may also be feeling anxious about the transition.
At Greenfield School, we are committed to ensuring that this transition is as smooth as possible for both children and parents; upholding a welcoming and supportive school environment where all children can thrive.
To help our Little School nursery families make this jump, and understand the decisions and processes that are over the horizon for their little one, we host Open Mornings exclusively for our Little School families. During the open morning, parents get to see the many exciting lessons, small teaching groups and impressive facilities that our Reception and Lower School children experience every day.
Children in Fledglings and Owls occupy bright and airy spaces in the discovery building; they can often be found using the Dance Studio, Forest School or our big Sports Hall for their daily exploration and physical activity. Our Open Mornings give parents the opportunity to see the classrooms and facilities available to all children at Greenfield, as well as understanding more about the changes that will happen when their child moves up to the next stage – from curriculum, uniform, lunchtimes, clubs, trips and more.
