Nursery and Pre-School
Our Nursery and Pre-School provide a happy, secure, bright and stimulating environment from where your daughter’s learning journey begins.
The Nursery Room is for our two to three year old children and is a well-equipped, bustling room which is ready to embrace the energy of our blossoming girls. Pre-School is open to girls who are three or four years of age and preparing for transition into Reception. Reception begins at the start of the academic year in which the girls turn five.
Our girls enjoy the wealth of resources available both indoors and outside in our purpose-built covered outdoor play area with garden. The girls are encouraged to play outside in all weathers; we embrace snow, rain, wind and sunshine at AESG!
Both Nursery and Pre-School follow the EYFS and our team of highly qualified staff encourage the girls to have their own ideas and to allow them freedom to think creatively and with imagination. This, in turn, develops the girls’ ability to communicate with others. Whilst the girls are busy in their play, our team are carefully supporting them in achieving and celebrating new skills. We are privileged to be part of a whole school and the girls access the wider environment, actively, by going on nature walks on the school playing field or listening to stories in the school library. Our Pre-School girls also use the School Hall or Junior Gym for their weekly PE sessions.
We recognise the important role that parents have in children’s learning and development, and we encourage a positive partnership. We understand that parents will have many questions as your daughter begins her educational journey and are pleased to discuss these – no matter how large or small they are. We realise it is not only a change of environment for your daughter but a change for you as parents as you entrust your child’s care to us.
Our Nursery and Pre-School is open from 8.00am – 4.00pm during term time and our Fun@the Edge Club enables us to offer extended care for girls aged 3 and above until 5.45pm.
