Grow Up at Your Own Pace
Our recently refurbished Nursery is now located within the heart of the Junior School, allowing our Pre-Schoolers to develop a closer relationship with the Reception class teacher and facilities. Our bright, airy and well-equipped rooms create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with access to the Nursery and Reception garden, and to the larger enclosed garden on campus, the brand-new Junior Playground, and the extended grounds of Roedean Moira House.
Our nursery children learn through play, and benefit from a full range of experienced staff and facilities, including:
- Specialist language teaching
- A fully equipped sports hall and Junior PE hall
- Extensive grounds, including gardens and a brand-new Junior Playground
- On-site catering at the school ensuring that the children have access to nutritious, wholesome and freshly cooked food
- Coming soon: Parent-toddler swimming sessions in our on-site heated pool, which can be booked on a weekly basis.
Activities included each week
Our Pre-Schoolers enjoy speaking and interacting in French once a week with a primary-trained teacher, learning vocabulary through play and role-play.
One of our peripatetic Music teachers visits once a week to introduce instruments, different sounds, singing and controlling the voice.
Every week the nursery children are taught in small groups activities such as jumping activities, stop-and-go games, and apparatus-based physical activities seek to develop motor skills.
