Teaching and Learning

In a secure and stimulating environment, creativity and imagination are fostered as the young girls take their first steps towards independence.  The Nursery is well equipped and thoughtfully planned to delight and excite young minds and the atmosphere is bright, busy and 'hands-on'.  With growing confidence, the children become engrossed in the adventure of learning as our caring and experienced staff guide them through the Foundation Stage.  This covers all of the following areas of learning: Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design.

Learning and understanding is enhanced through story, songs, and a wide range of role play. As well as focus time activities, the children are encouraged to initiate play, develop new relationships and learn to share and work things out together.  Social interaction is fostered throughout the day through daily routines such as snack sessions and lunch.  The girls are encouraged to discover the wider environment around them, enjoying the covered outdoor area, exploring our sensory garden, sandpit and the secure wooded area, which has provided the setting for many a magical adventure.
