Is your child’s Early Years education just not good enough?
Do you worry that your child isn’t getting the individual attention that he or she needs?
Is there something wrong with the way your current nursery environment is run, but you can’t put your finger on it?
You might be right. Children come in all shapes and sizes and stages of readiness. The needs of a two-year-old are not the same as those of a three-year-old or a child who is almost four and who is reaching for more than they are being offered. Most nurseries and preschools lump these age ranges all together and hope that the Key Workers can sort them all out. Understandably, many parents are anxious that their own child’s unique needs are getting ignored.
This is, of course, critical. Skills, talents, individual abilities need to be spotted and cultivated as early as possible and in an environment which doesn’t ‘drown’ them.
Important aspects of a child’s early years can fade into the background in a noisy, mixed environment.
It’s possible to solve this.
Greenfields Nursery and Reception is probably unique in that it offers:
- separate classrooms for 2s, 3s and ‘rising 4s’ -that is, those children who are not quite four years old but who just missed the cut-off point to starting school
- small class sizes in the above differentiated areas, leading to a much better service for each of the age groups with their different needs
- a Montessori approach in the Nursery which encourages basic life skills and participation in the school environment. (Montessori is an approach to early education that focuses on the immense capacity of children to absorb information when given the freedom and independence to learn at their own pace. It takes its name from Dr. Maria Montessori who developed specialised equipment and ways of presenting data and leads to an enormously powerful, confidence-building attitude to learning.)
Children who are almost four have quite varied needs from children who are two. Greenfields recognises this by providing separate classrooms and Key Workers for each, enabling a much more streamlined approach with better results all round.
Musical activites and other creative play help all this along in a variety of ways.
