The benefits of a teacher-led nursery
Did you know that a young child's education journey starts a long time before their reception year? We offer an education-based nursery setting with a qualified teacher who provides a stimulating and challenging learning environment. Each child has their own key worker who provides engaging and fun activities, ensuring children are excited and ready for learning from the moment they enter our doors.
Teaching within our nursery focuses heavily on vocabulary and storytelling - all children should be hearing thousands of words every day in order to aid their early writing skills. We have a weekly text, both fiction and nonfiction, with key words being a focus. Our provision is themed around the story to ensure we offer enticing and engaging learning, focussing on developing those key early skills. We also teach letters through a fantastic early reading programme called Read, Write Inc, which gives them a fantastic head start for their reception year.
- We have a high ambition for all pupils
- Our provision shows pupils independence
- Classes are calm, focussed and happy
- Children’s attitude to learning shows persistence and keenness to learn
- Children are well prepared for next steps
- Children are persistent – they experiment and investigate
All of this and more is delivered through a carefully planned curriculum to give your child firm foundations for their learning journey.
