|Day 1 at Nursery|
Harry started Little Dragons (what a cool name for a Nursery) shortly before his 3rd birthday. He was there the day it opened and has been part of their exciting journey. A School born from the motivation, dedication and vision of it's owners. As a teacher - I am perhaps one of the most critical parents (poor staff) but I can honestly say that over the last two years Harry has flourished.
During the last year, Harry has worked at times with the Reception children with 'Letters and Sounds'. I am convinced that this has helped him mature. He loved working with the reception teacher and has suddenly decided that he likes to read. After making a steady start (no pushy mother and no pushing from Nursery - just the way I wanted it to be) - he's suddenly developed a real passion for reading (but still on his terms - that stubbornness hasn't quite disappeared yet!). In Harry's eyes, his greatest achievement this term has been moving up a reading stage - not bad for a child not yet at school.
I cannot thank the staff enough - they have given Harry a wonderful start and I am so thankful that he is going to be remaining in that environment during his Primary years. With my teacher hat on, I really wish that all children in a pre-school environment were able to experience such a wonderful setting.....but as with all things in life, there is such a variation.His transition into Reception is easy - he just moves into a different room with a number of his peers and a new teacher (who he has met and is already in love with).
