Being Active

Being physically active during the day is vital for the under-fives for their physical development as well as their personal, social and emotional development.

Our large indoor and outdoor learning areas, combined with our extensive gardens, provide ample space for our children to move energetically and enjoy our play equipment. From the toddlers upwards, playful physical activities gradually build towards more structured sports and swimming classes.

Our Sports teachers provide specialist PE/Games sessions twice a week with the children often heard singing as the teachers lead them to the Astro-turf pitch, the swimming pool or the main sports grounds. We call it: ‘Learning our ABC’s,’ encouraging Agility, Balance and Coordination with a little ‘s’ for Speed! Our swimming coaches teach sessions built into the Early Years timetable starting from Nursery 2 and we showcase sports events to our parents.

Children from Nursery 2 can also take part in a range of Extra-curricular activities such as ballet, taekwondo, football, golf and tennis.
