Nursery

 

WELCOME TO PEARL CLASS

At Riverview Nursery, we pride ourselves on our commitment to a child centred curriculum. This follows every individual child’s interests and inspires them to learn. Learning through play forms the basis for our children to become independent and active learners.

We are a passionate team, led by a highly skilled teacher.  Together, we provide a stimulating and secure environment. Children can explore, investigate, reflect and try out new things with confidence.

We believe that children learn by leading their own play. Play is essential for children’s development.  Adults observe and see a ‘teachable moment’; next steps are identified and are carried out immediately. Our skilled staff teach this way because high level involvement occurs most often when children are able to pursue their own interests and challenge their thinking.

Throughout a session, there is a balance of adult and child led learning. Adult led learning has planned objectives and can be with the whole class or with a small focus group. In this way, we teach reading, number skills and phonics every day.

Our ‘workshop learning environment’ allows children to access both the indoor and outdoor areas. Children select from a range of open ended resources which develop key learning skills necessary for their next stage of learning.
