The Nursery day

Nursery children will start their school year in the week beginning July 14th. We will be contacting parents to arrange an online home visit in September before we open for children. 

What we teach

There are seven parts to the Nursery curriculum which are the beginnings of the established subject areas children study when they are older. They may be familiar to you if you think back to your time at school. There are three PRIME areas of development, said to occur throughout all aspects of your child's learning while in nursery:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

  • Communication and Language Development

  • Physical Development

There are also four SPECIFIC areas of development, occurring at particular planned times or with particular resources:

  • Literacy, including reading and writing

  • Mathematics, including number and shape & space

  • Understanding of the World

  • Expressive Arts and Design

How can you help your child prepare?

At Earlham we place a great deal of importance on the partnership between home and school and the role parents play in the education of their children. It is our aim that parents and teachers work closely together for the benefit of the child.

You can help your child by supporting them to practice these activities over the summer, so that they are 'Nursery ready' by September.
