Nursery

NURSERY

Every day, children enter a rich and vibrant learning environment where emotional well-being is paramount 

Children are welcomed into our new state of the art Nursery School in Hertfordshire from the September after they are 3.  Please click on this link to read our Nursery Parent Handbook for September 2020-2021.

From the very start, we encourage children to be investigators and make the most of the beautiful bright indoor and outdoor space.  Teachers adopt a child-centred approach to learning and development that allows our youngest pupils to follow their interests and be active thinkers and learners. They begin to collaborate and communicate with friends and think for themselves.

During this first year, we encourage a ‘finding out approach’ and the environment and routine encourage children to develop their independence, as they make decisions and choices when playing and learning. Whether they are singing in French, or drumming along to a tune as part of a music lesson, we aim to nurture their natural curiosity and spark their desire to learn.

Our Nursery pupils particularly enjoy their timetabled visits to Forest School within our Nursery School grounds, where they learn about the natural world with our own Forest Ranger.

Children attend  Nursery five mornings a week from 8.45am-12.30pm each day including lunch, with drop-off from 8.20am. We also offer a limited number of places to stay on for an afternoon session until 4.00pm (3.30pm on a Wednesday). Further Wraparound Care is also available.

Heath Mount's light and modern Nursery  provides a stimulating and imaginative learning environment and includes its own private play zone, covered terrace and two classrooms with interactive whiteboards.  

We have been very impressed by the caring and attentive staff and fabulous facilities on offer.  It has been a wonderful and gentle introduction to school life - Serena, Nursery Parent
We really appreciate the effort that all the Nursery staff go to, not only to build a relationship with the children, but with the parents and extended family, too - Emma, Nursery Parent
