Welcome to Prendergast Vale nursery.
On entering nursery children are starting on their educational journey. Our aim is to engender a love of learning in the children, encouraging them to become independent and inquisitive learners. We do this by providing a stimulating environment, with a wide variety of exciting activities that the children can either assess independently or with support.
For our phonics learning we use a combination of Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds. We use the Collins Big Cat reading scheme books.
The Nursery curriculum covers seven areas of learning:
Personal, Social and Emotional Physical Development
Communication and Language Literacy (Reading and Writing)
Understanding the World Maths
The characteristics of learning define what type of learner the children are.
- Playing and exploring
- Active learning
- Creating and thinking critically
