Nursery and Reception

Young children are introduced to activities designed to nurture their sense of independence.

Children of Nursery and Reception class age, are based in our Early Years Centre. During their time here, young children are introduced to a range of activities designed to encourage independence and nurture self-esteem, creating the conditions where concentration, confidence and perseverance develop naturally.

Work and play go hand-in-hand

We create an environment where each child can be a valued member of a small community in which their help and collaboration is encouraged and appreciated. They learn to care for others with kindness and gentleness.

Resources and curriculum

Children in our Nursery have access to Montessori teaching materials as well as other Early Years resources. Our Reception class children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, which builds upon the children’s experiences in Nursery and reflects the learning areas identified in the Early Learning Goals. This approach enables them to develop competencies, skills and concepts across several areas of learning.
