Early Years, Nursery & Reception

Miss Dennis – Reception Teacher, Phase Leader & Early Reading Leader

A very warm welcome to all our EYFS families at Scientia Academy. I have worked in both Reception and Nursery settings over my 9 years of teaching and I am passionate about children learning through play. I love the fun and laughter each day brings in Early Years and I can’t wait to follow the children on the rest of their learning journey this year.


Miss Jennings – Reception Teacher & P.E. team

Hello! I am delighted to be working as a Reception teacher for the second year running in this warm and welcoming environment. I have been teaching for 7 years now and simply adore working within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). As an EYFS teacher I strive to make every day fun, fulfilling and to support every child’s individual needs as best I can.


Miss Nicholson – Nursery Leader

Hello! This is my third year working at Scientia Academy and my experience with the whole school community has been lovely. I am very passionate about teaching and it’s a true privilege to have the opportunity to positively impact children’s learning and development. I look forward to continuing my work with the Scientia EYFS team in what should be another fun and exciting year of learning.

We are very proudly supported by our amazing teaching assistants: Mrs. Pacey, Miss Skinner, Miss King, Miss Elks and Mrs. Nickels
