St. Aubyn’s Nursery is a warm and welcoming place where children are happy to play and learn. The children join us at 3 years of age and quickly settle into their new surroundings.
St. Aubyn’s Nursery is based on the main school site and in 2010 the Nursery building was extended with a bright new conservatory area. We also have two exciting outdoor spaces, one of which the children can have constant access to, in accordance with Early Years requirements.
The Nursery children are also able to make use of the main school’s outstanding facilities. This includes visits to the well resourced library, the Sports Centre and the Performing Arts Centre.
The learning experience aims to inspire the child inside and outside of the classroom. The curriculum is designed to meet the criteria outlined in the EYFS framework. Specific learning objectives are designed around 3 prime areas:
- Communication and Language,
- Physical Development,
- Personal, Social and Emotional development
and 4 specific areas:
- Understanding of the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
Children work to objectives outlined in these areas of learning.
Our qualified, friendly staff provide a stimulating, nurturing environment where each child’s needs are catered for through our play based curriculum. Children learn through a wide and varied range of play, and we firmly believe that learning should be absorbing, challenging and plenty of fun! This approach provides a basic grounding in numeracy and literacy, thereby enabling children to progress into their primary education with a sense of achievement and confidence.
Our Nursery pupils do continue through into our thriving Pre-Preparatory Department.
Nursery Education Grant Vouchers are accepted. For further information, please contact the Admissions Registrar.
