Owlets is the second stage of the Nursery, for the children aged 2-3.
It is a bright and stimulating environment designed to encourage all the seven areas of your child’s development in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We ask for our Owlets to attend Nursery for a minimum of four sessions a week. We have two Owlets classrooms, both light and airy, which open up onto the same free-flow enclosed outdoor area, allowing the children to mix and extend their friendship groups. The Owlets spend most of their time in their classrooms with their key workers or enjoying our extensive grounds. They also enjoy weekly PE lessons with their key workers, Music lessons with our Director of Music, and French with our Head of Languages. Every other week the children participate in swimming lessons in our indoor heated pool and Forest Schools.
Over the course of the year, we cover several age-appropriate topics, including People who help us, Colours, Space, Minibeasts and Transport and the children are also full of their own ideas and interests that we incorporate into our planning of activities. The children benefit from popular outings to Little Street and Birdworld during the Autumn and Summer Term and throughout the year, the children are involved in fun events across the school.
The children have regular contact with the older children in the EYFS, especially during the summer term, to ensure a smooth transition to Owls.
