Dear children and parents,

A very warm welcome to our website that we hope will give you a window into our exciting setting. 

From September 2012, St. Christopher’s became host to a dedicated Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Unit; the first of its kind in Service Children’s Education.   It is an exciting time at St. Christopher’s as we begin our journey together with children, parents and the local military and Gibraltarian community. 

The staff at the EYFS Unit are all very experienced and qualified Early Years practitioners and this is reflected in our child centred approach.   We are sensitive to the impact that transitions can have on young children and this is particularly the case for children in military families.  Bearing this in mind we work hard to ensure that our children settle quickly and feel that sense of belonging that is so crucial for them to be able to play and develop relationships with the adults and peers around them. 

We are aware that one of the most difficult decisions a parent or carer makes is to leave their child in the care of other people.  We know that you are the most enduring and best teacher that your child will ever have but we want to work in partnership with you to help your child develop a love of learning as they explore a variety of concepts and skills within a supportive and challenging environment.

We hope that you enjoy looking around our website and look forward to welcoming you in the near future.

 

Mrs Amy Wright
EYFS Leader
