Children are welcomed into our new state of the art Nursery School in Hertfordshire from the September after they are 3.
From the very start, we encourage them 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.
