    At Benison Day Nursery, our Nursery Class is led by Beci Grieve, our deputy manager and Sian Mayo, our nursery teacher. Beci and her team provide children with a range of new and exciting opportunities to learn and develop through interaction with people and exploration of the environment around them.

    Children enjoy both child initiated activities and adult led experiences where new ideas and concepts can be further explored and developed. Mark making, problem solving, phonics and literacy are integrated into all our activities so the children learn through fun, open ended and hands on experiences which encourage them to learn to work together, negotiating and sharing their ideas and thoughts with each other.

    Learning and development

    Children's self-confidence and communication skill development is built through small and large group activities.

    The activities include children talking about their home experiences and special events in their lives.

    Our team works with professionals from outside the nursery.

    Clinton, our dance and drama teacher trains the children on aspects of creative expression. 

    Children also have the opportunity to participate in Spanish tuition provided by Cecilia Coopman.

    Garden area of the nursery

    The nursery class garden is a safe and secure outdoor space with two entrances and exits for parents. Both gates are opened using a keypad lock system.

    There is a shaded pergola with a soft play surface beneath for story telling or picnics in summer.

    The children are involved in activities including painting, water play, sand, role play and physical outdoor activities.

    They are encouraged to explore nature, grow plants, learn where their food comes from and make healthy choices.

    Trips into the local community help children to consolidate their learning by making links and connections to real situations.
