The earliest years of school – when a child takes their first steps from the security of the family into the outside world – are vital. Our Nursery offers a warm, engaging and secure start to school life.
Even from this young age children are respected as powerful, capable beings and encouraged to be independent and self-resourcing. Free from external pressures and constraints, children grow in confidence and develop a love of school.
The rhythm of the day is loosely structured to include moments of coming together and periods of exploration and play. Projects may be fleeting and independent – or in-depth and collaborative. A trip to the local pond may spark a bug hunt, a chance to observe the changing seasons – or an investigation into the fire hydrants discovered en route.
Nursery children attend up to five mornings per week initially, staying for the occasional longer day when they are turn four. EYFS funding is available.
The Toddler Group is a parent-run initiative which runs when there is sufficient interest from families. It provides a relaxed and happy time for very young children to play and explore with their parents.
The group meets weekly in the Nursery and is open to all families with an interest in the school.
