✿ A high quality nursery is about much more than colours and shapes, numbers and letters and eye catching displays. It’s about learning to be independent confident, strong and curious. It’s about developing children’s natural joy and wonder at the world they live in. It’s about having a positive attitude, forming positive relationships and believing in yourself. If children can learn to ‘have a go’, learn from mistakes and try again, they will succeed in their future learning. This is our ethos at the Alphabet House Nursery school and we try to imbibe this in every child who passes through our every setting. Young children learn by doing things for themselves, by exploring and investigating, watching and listening, talking and discussing, creating and communicating – in other words – playing. Play is children’s work and playing hard is very tiring! A happy child is a playful child.
