The Nursery at Blackawton is part of our Teacher-Led Foundation Unit providing a nurturing environment where children enjoy learning through play and active involvement. Building upon every child’s natural curiosity we inspire a love of learning, exploration and creativity. We offer a safe and well-resourced environment designed to stimulate imagination, social interaction and the development of skills, ensuring that all children grow in confidence and are fully prepared for full-time education from the age of four years. We promote a caring, happy ethos and value working closely in partnership with families to meet the needs of each child.
Our vibrant enabling environment and our highly qualified and dedicated staff combine to support all our children through their first steps of development. We plan for social and educational development through structured play where children are encouraged to challenge themselves within the seven areas of learning; personal, social and emotional development, communication and language, physical development, literacy including reading and writing, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design. From the earliest age, your child will be encouraged to become the articulate, confident and independent learner that characterises the children in Blackawton Primary School.
