Clevelands Nursery is a purpose built facility, catering for children aged 2¾ to 4 years. It forms an integral part of Clevelands Preparatory School. The nursery aims to provide a secure and caring environment in which children feel safe and nurtured. This, combined with educationally stimulating surroundings and activities, encourages them to develop their inquisitive nature and learn at their own pace. The progress and attainment they make was deemed outstanding at our recent inspection.
Young children gain knowledge through first-hand, multi-sensory experience. Through constructive play, children are taught a solid curriculum based on the Foundation Stage. This includes the following areas:
Children are encouraged to develop abilities such as social interaction, imagination, observation, exploration and investigation. By using these new skills, they will discover how to use numbers and shapes, read books, write, paint, draw, dance, and above all enjoy learning!
Throughout their time in the department, we celebrate our children’s achievements monitor them through consistent assessment. Parents remain involved at every stage, and are regularly updated on their child’s progress.
The nursery works very closely with the school’s pre-preparatory department, to ensure pupils have a seamless transition into full-time school.
