Nursery Curriculum

The Giles Nursery offers a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities designed to promote the cognitive, physical, emotional and social growth of its children. Children can enjoy experimenting with sand, water, paint, clay, glue, wood and many other basic materials.
They enjoy looking at books, listening to stories and learning songs and rhymes. They can play in the band, dress up in the role play area, play with a variety of toys and games and engage in food technology.

The Nursery allows them to make decisions, take turns with each other, share the attention of the adults and to establish relationships with one another. By the end of their time in the Nursery, the children should be more confident, capable and ready for the more formal learning of the Infants' School.  Please see our Curriculum section on the 'About Us' web page for more details.
