Nursery

"Play is an essential activity for all children. Not only is it enjoyable but it also makes an invaluable contribution to children's educational and social development". (Piaget)

By the time children start Nursery, they have already had a variety of experiences and have developed in a number of ways. To build upon the learning that has taken place in the home and its immediate environment, the Nursery staff will provide children with a rich variety of challenging play activities and other experiences in a stimulating environment. Our focus is to allow children to learn at their own pace, gain a positive image of themselves as learners, be able to cope with uncertainty and to learn through trial and error.
