Chatterbox follows the Italian system with a 3 year attendance playschool but acknowledges the importance of a "transition year" between nursery years and primary ones. Thus the Reception Year – which in the British system is the first year of the Primary curriculum – is in Chatterbox, a fundamental link between nursery and primary years.

 The curriculum of the Reception Year is enriched with specific lessons of Physical Education, Literacy, Numeracy, Chinese and Music.
