Reception New Starters September 2024


My name is Karen Hunnisett and I am the Early years lead here at Heathlands. 


We have our Caterpillars class for our nursery children who can join us the term after they have turned three and our Butterflies reception class.  We are very lucky to have lots of outdoor learning space as well as our woodland area known as the Spinney.  The children who start in our Early Years leave us with an excellent attitude to learning and play, they become independent and simply love being part of the Heathlands family.  They build strong relationships with the foundation team staff and this supports their confidence as they continue their journey through the school.  We set high expectations for behaviour and support the children to meet these which means that they are in the best position to learn.  Our classrooms are buzzing with excitement and determination which makes it a very magical place to be.


If you have chosen to join us at Heathlands then we are very excited to meet you, if you are still considering your options - why not make an appointment to have a tour and meet with staff.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.


kind regards

Karen Hunnisett
