We are excited to share with you our beautiful Nursery!
At Raynville Academy we offer a curriculum rich in wonder and memorable experiences. We work hard to provide a stimulating environment that provides exciting opportunities, promotes challenge, exploration, adventure and a real love of learning.
It is our intent that all children develop physically, verbally, cognitively and emotionally in an environment which values all cultures, communities and people. We aim for our children to be confident and independent, to believe in themselves and interact positively with others.
We understand that play is an integral part of learning and this is at the heart of our early year’s curriculum. We believe that the correct mix of adult directed, and uninterrupted child-initiated play ensures the best outcomes for pupils.
Warm and positive relationships between staff and children, consistent routines and strong relationships with parents are key.
We recognise the crucial role that early year’s education must play in providing firm foundations upon which the rest of a child’s education is successfully based.
At Raynville we ensure close links are maintained with the Reception Class to aid transition. We work in the same outdoor environment together so our children become familiar with all of the adults in the Foundation stage classes. This also means children become very familiar with the ‘big school’ and their move to Reception is a natural, non-threatening progression.
