Nursery A day in the life

Scroll to content

We’re committed to ensuring our pupils have the skills to thrive in the modern world.

We do this by following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, but also by tailoring the teaching to each individual child and making the most of smaller teaching groups.

Our approach is play based, as we introduce the building blocks of development, and the seven areas we focus on include:

• Communication and language development
• Physical development
• Personal, social and emotional development
• Literacy development
• Mathematics
• Understanding the world
• Expressive arts and Design


Children also benefit from the special talents of teachers in areas such as music, IT and languages.


Exciting outdoor play spaces stimulate the imagination and allow the children to develop friendships and social skills across all age groups.


The curriculum is further enhanced by trips to places such as the Brighton Toy Museum, Woodlands Mead and Wild Beach School. Twice each term the Nursery visits the coast to learn about the coastline, local wildlife and coastal management.

Learning diary

We also keep an Interactive Learning Diary as an online record of your child’s progress in both Nursery and Reception. Photos, video and audio are all used to record observations and insights around learning objectives. These can be accessed and even added to by parents via an app.
