Nursery School

Erasmus Projects

Learning together through Erasmus projects


During 2018-19 a number of colleagues at the nursery had the opportunity to participate in projects funded through the European Union Erasmus programme.  

Joint Research Project 

During 2018-19 a number of staff participated in a joint research project alongside colleagues from Emneth Nursery School, Norfolk. The project linked schools in the UK, France, Sweden, Italy, Greece and Estonia. Each school had the opportunity to visit schools in the participating countries, sharing good practice, exploring similarities and differences in early years practice and reflecting on changes which could be made in light of the visits.  

Carole lead a visit to Earlham Nursery as part of the groups visit to the UK. Giving an guided tour of the school, explanation of our teaching approaches and strategies and provision for children with SEND. 

Crete Visit

Tara and Conor visited Crete to observe and learn more about early years        education in Greece. They spent time in kindergartens in Crete. Tara and Conor loved how friendly, polite and happy the children were, and how enthusiastic the teachers were despite having much smaller spaces than we are lucky enough to have in the UK. One of the highlights of the trip was a school visit to an archaeological site. 

Sardinian Visit

Emma joined colleagues from Emneth Nursery School on a visit to early years settings in Sardinia. Emma observed how the settings had established strong professional relationships with parents and what a positive impact this had on the children's attendance and parents engagement in their child's education. 

Sweden Visit

Jayne was very lucky to go to Sweden for training in the Forest School approach. She visited two schools while she was there; Broholmskolan and Önums friskola. While there, Jayne reflected on forest school practice she witnessed in Sweden but also our practice here in our own garden. This was an amazing opportunity for professionals to share and reflect on practice within the early years. Jayne's key reflection was on the opportunities for risk taking the children in Sweden were given and how the children responded so positively to these expectations, taking responsibility for their own safety and wellbeing.
