Nursery School

Learning Spaces

Along with our classrooms and our garden, we have several other learning spaces which the children have access to in small groups.

As you can imagine, our soft play room is a favourite with the children at our Nursery. With a ball pool, ball shower, crawling tunnels, trampoline, large building blocks and much more, it is a safe space for the children to challenge themselves physically, learn about shapes and colours and refine their gross motor skills.

Sensory Room

Our sensory room is a calm and safe space which allows our children to develop coping skills for external stimuli which may sometimes overwhelm them. The sensory room has been developed to provide:

  • Improved focus.
  • Stimulation.
  • Socialisation.
  • Motor skills development.
  • Cognitive development.
  • Sensory development.

Although these benefits are most effective for children with developmental delay, we have found that all of our children benefit from the use of a calming space which allows them to explore with, and hone, their developing senses.

The Hall

The hall is a large enough space for us to host events for our parents, such as Christmas concerts and Stay & Play events. 

For the children we use it as a physical play space. Some of the activities include:

  • Climbing, balancing and jumping using our climbing equipment.
  • Yoga.
  • Dancing and moving to music.
  • Ball rolling, throwing and catching.
  • Racket games.
  • Parachute games.

Dining Room

When the children aren't eating their lunch, the dining room is used for cookery sessions. The children learn cookery skills, such as good hygiene, measuring and weighing ingredients, chopping, stirring and cooking by following simple recipes with an adult. We develop our mathematical and scientific skills, as well as enjoying sharing and eating our wonderful creations! 

We practice our writing skills when we compose our shopping lists and enjoy cooking produce we have grown in the garden or gathered during our visits to Marlpit Community Gardens. 

We often cook food to celebrate events throughout the year. If there are any celebrations that your family takes part in, let us know!



Every class has an allocated slot each week to visit the library. Every child received a book bag to enable them to select books from the library to take home and share with parents. Children enjoy sharing stories and exploring story sacks in the library. 

We also have a wide range of books you are welcome to borrow on topics such as preparing for the arrival of a new baby, bereavement and changes in the family. In addition we have stories in dual languages. Please speak to a member of staff in your child's class if you would like to borrow additional books from the library,
