It is important to us that a child’s first experience of school life is caring and fun.
It is widely recognised that playing is fundamental to a child’s learning. Our Nursery children develop new skills by choosing to play alongside or with their peers in the calm, warm environment of their bright, well-equipped classroom and covered outside area.
Our experienced staff guide them in their learning and provide a range of engaging activities. Every child is encouraged to be independent and to share in child-led play and learning. If a Nursery child stays to lunch they are able to enjoy a hot meal with staff on hand to help.
Nursery is a part of the Early Years Foundation Stage at Barrow Hills and the children are given many opportunities to mix with the Kindy children. They also join the rest of Pre-Prep at the weekly Birthday Assembly and, when we feel they will enjoy it, participate in a Pre-Prep production.
