Learning through play
We believe it’s important that the pupils can lose themselves in what they’re doing and complete activities without being restricted by curriculum. We create learning experiences inspired by a pupil's interests from a young age, listening to the child and working with our parents to find out what interests them.
Pupils learning through child-led activities
Problem-solving, creativity and role-play are a huge part of a typical day. Skill development is learned through play; literacy and numeracy are developed and explored creatively through ‘real’ and imaginary experiences in our ‘castle’, the ‘home corner’, and ‘doctor’s surgery’.
Nursery outdoor learning is an important part of our curriculum and a natural extension to indoor learning. Children thrive on fresh air and are stimulated by their natural surroundings, so we encourage plenty of time outdoors for imaginative role-play, adventure play and environmental learning. They enjoy a practical and hands-on approach to discovery – playing in trees, planting vegetables and learning by exploring the world around them.
