Each child is encouraged to join a core group of approximately 5 children of a similar age, under the care and guidance of their teacher and support staff. Each group is committed to the objective of providing every child with the regular opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities for most part of the day, children will break up into individual or small group activities, regroup as a large group for entertainment, snacks & outdoor play. Our teachers act as facilitators, preparing a learning environment all day keeping the unique and individual needs of each child in mind, challenging him/her with new activities and reassuring him/her with old favorites.
A theme–based language curriculum links each of our program’s providing continuity as children move from one stage to the next. Group language reinforcement activities are practiced daily ensuring that native language speakers are encouraged to use English more actively.

Many children, particularly under the age of 3 years, will require a sleep time during the day. Our school has ample sleeping facilities for the children, who are offered a rest period during the day, usually after lunchtime if they attend for the whole day. Young babies will follow their own home routine for sleep times as discussed with the child’s parents. If a child does not want to sleep they will be provided with other restful activities.
Our staff members are trained to plan for children’s individual learning needs. Staff will observe their key children and identify strengths, development needs and interests and build on these through the weekly plans. Short and medium term plans for the children are displayed in the child’s base room.
Each child’s group teacher is responsible for completing an individual learning Journey for all children in her group. This is an assessment of your child’s progress and allows staff to record achievements against the six areas of learning outlined under the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. This also helps staff to understand how your child needs to be supported and enables them to share information with you about your child’s progress at nursery.
