The Nursery Class and Pre-Prep is where the foundation of learning is laid and a lifelong thirst for knowledge initiated. Children join us in The Nursery Class in the September after their third birthday on a part-time or full-time basis.
We introduce your child into The Nursery Class at their own pace. They will come for an initial first Stay and Play session, and they may have further two or more Stay and Plays until they are settled into Nursery Life.
Our dedicated Nursery class teacher and team take time to understand your child’s character and learning style to help them take their first steps on their educational journey.
In the Nursery Class children cover a new topic each term through art, play, music discussion, exploration and child-led activities. They are introduced to number concepts, shapes, sequencing, phonics, pre-reading and writing skills, scientific thinking and basic motor skills through the Early Years Curriculum.
By having access to the extensive facilities on the Prep School campus, we aim to develop the children’s character and abilities by providing them the opportunity to try new activities. During the academic year, the children will have weekly lessons in swimming, Music, Art, Drama and Sports, as well as numeracy and literacy, and a fortnightly Forest School session.
We strongly believe that if a child is happy and free from worry then they will achieve their best. We nurture and support your child in this philosophy when they start at The Nursery Class and practise this approach as they develop through the College.
“We looked at several schools in the area, but it was the exceptional level of nurturing and care in the Early Years Setting that really appealed to us”
