THE JOURNEY THROUGH SOUTH LEE
Our Nursery is well renowned in the local area and provides the perfect start to your child’s learning journey.
The Nursery operates all year around from the purpose built premises within the school grounds. The bright and airy rooms are well resourced and the children have access to their own dedicated outdoor play space.
Child initiated and play based learning is complimented by practitioner led learning. The children also benefit room sessions with specialist teachers in Art, French, Physical Activity, Tennis and Stave House. The curriculum also includes Drama, Forest School, Musical Explorers, Yoga and STEM sessions (Science Technology, Engineering and Maths).
We are excited to announce the opening of a new baby room, due to the high demand for places.
Pre-Prep provides the perfect start to your child’s formal education.
In Reception, children join the Pre-Prep school where they remain until Year 4. We aim to take young children’s natural curiosity and ignite it further through a range of play- based learning for the younger children, as well as more formal methods of learning. We encourage the children to ask questions and to find different ways to seek the answers. We encourage individuality and creativity, as this helps to build a growth mindset. The children are enthusiastic and inspired and they like nothing more than a challenge to get their brains going.
The Prep School is all about developing independent, resilient, engaging and engaged young people.
Pupils enter the Prep School in Year 4 where they remain until the end of Year 8. The emphasis in the prep school is to really get the best out of the children both academically and creatively, so they are ready for their future schools and beyond. Independence and leadership are central to the philosophy in the prep school. We encourage the pupils to take on responsibility for their learning journey and to really challenge themselves. We also think that every pupil has the capacity to take on leadership, even if only in a small way. Believing in the children’s capabilities gives them confidence to achieve great things.
