Your child's Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception years at Regents are exactly what they should be: enjoyable, stimulating and secure. It is the best possible preparation for your child’s future learning and success and an excellent preparation for school. For most children, this is the start of their formal education, which is why we create an environment in which the children really enjoy spending time, and provide them with caring and well-qualified teachers.
Between they age of 2.5 and 5 years, children visit Pre-Nursery, then Nursery and finally Reception classes, which follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum with a focus on seven areas of a child’s learning and development:
- Communication and language
- Physical development
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
In practice, this means that at Regents your child will enjoy fun activities encompassing the indoor, outdoor and emotional environments. They will play and explore, be active and creative, develop language skills and become culturally aware. Developing early social skills is of great importance and children are provided with exciting opportunities which encourage the development of positive relationships.
Whether they are learning to swim in the school pool, sitting with a teacher for story time, exploring the natural world in our garden, or eating lunch with their classmates, our youngest pupils are learning valuable social and academic skills.
