In the Nursery we aim to foster independence and build self-esteem. We do this by organising the environment inside and outside so that children can choose where to learn and can access well labelled resources without help.

Children know where to find what they need and are given responsibility for tidying up. We aim to follow daily routines so that children feel secure and soon learn what will happen next.  The routine involves a combination of large group, small group and independent activities.
