A Day in the Nursery - What your child can expect


Early birds can enjoy our Breakfast club from 7:45am in the Dining Hall which is available to all children across the school.  From 8:30am, our little nursery explorers are warmly welcomed into their classrooms.  Independence is encouraged with children self-registering on arrival and taking responsibility for placing their belongings, such as book bags, coats and snack pots in the correct places. Once this has been achieved, they may choose freely from a variety of resources and meaningful activities which help to build personal, social, physical and intellectual development. During the day the children engage in a wide range of activities including outdoor play and adult directed sessions.  Our aim is to provide a play based curriculum that enables children to learn in a stimulating and interactive environment that is secure and safe, yet challenging. Our qualified and highly experienced staff will ensure activities are suited to your child’s unique needs and interests.

No two Nursery days are alike, as the structure alters to accommodate additional activities, such as Forest School and specialist lessons including French, Drama, Dance, P.E. and Music. Children learn by being actively engaged in creative and critical thinking opportunities and experiences which take place both indoors and outside.
