At 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 is new for 2022 and is located in a purpose built classroom and providing a wonderful space for children aged 3 to continue their development. This room provides progression from the Bright Beginners and continues to put children’s interests and development of prime skills at the heart of the provision. Play spaces include role-play, sand, water, sensory, construction, small world and reading, mark making and outdoor areas.
Early Explorers participate in 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.
