Babington House School Early Years

Nursery & Prep

Co-ed aged 3 - 11



Teaching & Learning

In our Nursery and Reception classes we follow the new Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

We try to make learning fun and put in a bit of 'extra' challenge with a special focus on mathematics and literacy. We also put an emphasis on the children's personal, social, emotional and physical development and put a lot of effort into developing their communication and language skills.  Our careful curriculum planning incorporates a number of elements such as playing and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking critically.

We work in close partnership with parents and the Headmaster and Head of Prep are always happy to have an informal chat about your child's progress at the school gate in the morning as well as having more formal discussions throughout the term. Our teaching staff are always available to discuss additional challenges for children to work on at home. We try to find the spark that lights up their learning and always encourage their achievements, however small. In this way we ensure the children are ready for the brisk academic pace of Year 1 and that they are equipped with a broad range of knowledge and skill.
