Welcome to West Hampstead Nursery!

We hope that your child’s first year at the school will be an enjoyable and exciting time.  In the Nursery the children will be developing their skills in the three prime areas of learning – Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language.

In the Nursery the children will engage in child-initiated and adult-directed learning based around the topic.  We start the day with a short carpet session after which the children free flow through the indoor and outdoor play space.  They are encouraged to select and use the resources independently, challenge themselves and develop their critical and creative thinking skills.

Our philosophy of learning is holistic, encouraging children to develop their skills through a creative curriculum in which the Characteristics of Effective Learning are deeply embedded - Playing and Exploration, Active Learning and Creative and Critical Thinking. Visit the "Our Curriculum - EYFS Curriculum" page to find out more.

Speak to a  member of staff if you have any questions or concerns - 'together we achieve'.
