A typical day in nursery

On entry children are free to choose activities from a vast array of learning materials in the classroom, exploring and developing key skills. On arrival of the class teacher, the children will carry out certain "learning jobs", including pencil control, name writing and number recognition. These activities will develop and be extended as we progress through the year.

The children lead the way in play and staff make key assessments as they watch and play with the children. Each half term there is a new topic which allows certain key objectives to be built into the children's day/week.

The children are able to access a range of healthy snacks during the day, keeping them fuelled for play!
