Nursery in Our Preparatory School | The Banda School

Children start their Early Years education in our Nursery class where they quickly settle into this caring environment, soon realising that learning is fun.

We have two interconnecting classrooms which are arranged so that the children have access to activities covering all six areas of learning, all day, every day. The third room is set up to accommodate the teacher led sessions where the children are taken in small groups to complete the task for that lesson. This configuration allows children to learn through both play based and teacher led activities.

With two highly qualified teachers and two teaching assistants all children are able to access the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum through tailor made learning opportunities. We have also introduced a new system of recording the children’s progress with Online Learning Journals. These are a new innovation in the EYFS arena and we are looking forward to seeing the results.

Nursery children also have the opportunity to learn from our subject specialists in the main school. They have lessons in ICT, Music and PE and Games. In the afternoons, the children follow an activities program which contains a wide range of different topics. These include gardening, arts and crafts, cookery, ICT and Kiswahili.

Our Nursery is a fun and caring environment for your children and a great start to the EYFS. We would love for you to come and have a look at all the fantastic work that the children do, so please get in touch and come for a visit.
