Our curriculum covers the six areas of the pre-school
curriculum. Children are gently supported and encouraged to grow
in independence, self-esteem and confidence. Active participation
in carefully planned play situations will help stimulate their
curiosity and imagination, extend their concentration, observation
and reasoning skills while building on the early maths and science
concepts they are beginning to acquire.
Nursery staff will also encourage your child to express
their ideas confidently and develop the listening skills so vital
to their language development. Musical experiences will also help
to reinforce listening skills as they experiment with sound, pitch
and rhythmic patterns.
We want you to realise that nursery school is your child's
first step on their journey through education. We will do our
best to create a safe, stimulating environment and to make this
first experience a very happy and rewarding one.
