Early Years Foundation Stage

Early Years includes children from birth to 5. At Charlton, children mainly join our pre-school (Acorns) from ages 2 or 3 depending on availability. Children begin in Reception from the September of the academic year in which they turn 4 years old.

Further details about our pre-school and reception provision can be found on the separate links to the right.
