Nursery at Warwick Prep
For most children, life at Warwick Prep begins in our warm, welcoming and secure Nursery.
A dedicated Early Years team help each child to feel happy, confident and able to achieve as they take their first tentative steps into the exciting world of learning. By providing a carefully balanced programme of structured activities, alongside learning through discovery and play, the children grow in confidence while developing core skills and independence.
The children follow the EYFS curriculum and move from room to room throughout the day as they carry out different activities. Fun topic based events are planned with Reception, thus allowing for a smooth transition as the children move into school. The curriculum is nriched by outdoor trips for example, visiting Warwick School to celebrate Chinese New Year and a local study project at Hill Close Gardens where the children develop curiosity and learn about the world around them as they explore all their senses. Educational
visitors are warmly invited into the Nursery, often providing inspiration for innovative music and movement events in the School Hall to which parents are invited.
Drop-off is available free of charge from 7:45am with an After School Club that runs until 5:45pm.
Our purpose-built building has three quiet rooms and a large playroom for role and imaginative play. The craft room is well resourced for those fun, messy activities! We also have computers and interactive whiteboards, and finally a large, secure outdoor play space just for Nursery. The children make use of the School’s facilities including the Library, Music rooms for their specialist Music lessons,
Dining room, Bridge House Sports Centre and the Astro Turf for PE and School Hall.
We also hold a weekly activity group for children due to start Nursery the following September, called Nutkins. This provides a gentle introduction to school life for both children and parents in a relaxed atmosphere.
