Our Nursery provides a happy and caring environment where all children are valued equally, their contributions to Nursey life appreciated and acknowledged and where they find security whilst being challenged to give and only accept their best.
What will my child do in Nursery?
We plan for and assess children’s learning in seven areas. These are divided into three prime areas and four specific areas.
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Understanding of the world
- Expressive arts and design
The indoor and outdoor environment is set up so that all children can access these areas independently.
We believe in supporting and guiding each individual child’s development to their full potential, and therefore our Nursery classes promote the characteristics of effective learning:
