Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.

- Margaret Mead

Admissions Open for 2024-25


The nursery will follow the British EYFS program based on the 7 areas of development.

and Language

Communication and language underpins a child’s understanding, speaking, listening and attention skills. Communication and language is developed through rhythm and rhyme time, messy play, show and tell, group time, small world play and 1:1 Key Person time.

Personal Social and Emotional Development

Personal, social and emotional development helps children to develop a positive sense and respect for themselves, and for others. It enables children to learn social skills and a positive attitude to learning.


Physical development encourages moving and handling and helps develop an understanding of health and self-care. Physical development is encouraged in lots of ways including; obstacle courses, garden games (spatial awareness), mark making, threading and self-care activities.

the World

Understanding the world explores people and communities, the world and technology. We support understanding the world through small world play, computer play, science experiments, music time, visiting the local community and celebrating festivals.

Arts & Design

Expressive artsand design develops imagination by exploring and using media and materials through construction, role play, exploring materials, musical movement and creative activities.


Literacy is the foundation of learning to read and write. We support Literacy development through story time, mark-making, letter of the week and book of the month.


Mathematics develops the understanding of numbers, shape, space and measure. You will find Mathematics in our water play, cooking, puzzles, sequencing activities, following routine and mealtimes.
