Manor Hill NurseryAt Manor Hill First School Nursery children are at the centre of all we do, we are incredibly proud of our high quality Early Years provision where children have the opportunity to lead their own learning in an inclusive and supportive environment. Our qualified and experienced staff observe the children on a daily basis and use their observations to plan further opportunities for children to help them progress through the Early Years Curriculum in a way which best suits their needs.
Our setting is open daily during school term time and provides a full and busy play based curriculum for children aged between two and four years old.
Our Bright Beginners room provides a welcoming, encouraging environment for two year olds where by using stimulating child led activities the children are encouraged and supported to develop their natural interest in becoming independent. Opportunities are available in our indoor and outdoor environments for construction, mark making and messy play and there is a quiet area for sharing stories, songs and rhymes.
Our Early Explorers environment comprises of a spacious classroom and outdoor area for our three and four year olds. Alongside focused daily Phonics, Numeracy and Literacy activities, staff plan play experiences based on the children’s interests. There are a variety of play spaces including, role-play, sand, water, sensory, construction, small world and reading areas.
Weekly Forest School sessions in our extensive school grounds are part of our weekly timetable, these are planned by our qualified Forest School Leaders to offer a wealth of outdoor learning opportunities such as den building, climbing and learning how to use tools. This process encourages the development of spatial awareness and gross and fine motor skills. Forest School also provides exposure to manageable risk, which encourages and teaches children how to assess risk.
At Manor Hill First School Nursery we use loose parts in play, these are materials that can be moved, taken apart, lined up, carried and completely redesigned to make something else, providing endless possibilities in their play and supporting children to explore their imaginations and develop their problem solving skills.
The success in our approach to learning is evident as children leave us to continue their educational journey at the expected level of development for their age or higher.
