“Almost all creativity involves purposeful play.” – Abraham Maslow
“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.” - O. Fred Donaldson
Play underpins all we do in Carle class this is because it is fundamental to all aspects of a child’s development and learning. Our children have access to a wonderful indoor and outdoor provision, giving them different environments to explore and discover the world around them. Here they learn to practise new skills, take risks, make friends, explore their imagination and problem solve.
The children will be assigned a key group where they will practise skills such as communication and language, fine motor and name writing, phonics and mathematics. These groups are led by one of the teaching assistants, under the guidance and planning of the class teacher. The children will also be taught in daily whole class groups by the class teacher.
If you would like more information about eligibility for 30 hours, payments and our admission process please contact our Nursery Administrator on 0118 942 6113 who will be happy to assist.
