The Early Years Centre

Mylnhurst Early Years

We offer lots of exciting and stimulating opportunities in our beautiful purpose built Early Years Centre.

Nursery (pre-school) is often a child’s first experience of spending time away from their families; therefore, our initial focus is always to create an environment that is happy, safe and welcoming. Our Early Years Centre ensures children are emotionally supported through our outstanding pastoral care. Feeling safe and happy is the first step to building confidence and enthusiasm and our children quickly settle in – making friends, playing, exploring and discovering new talents.

Our team of highly experienced and inspirational staff engage each child’s curiosity and imagination, supporting them as they embark upon their school journey. The world unfolds around them as they explore through purposeful play and experience the joy of discovery and learning. Our children are all encouraged to ask questions, explore ideas and tackle new challenges. Every day brings a new adventure!

The timetable consists of a carefully planned balance of child-initiated learning alongside adult led activities.

Preparing for Reception Class is an essential part of nursery life. As our children approach Reception age, there is a structured increase in the amount of learning and purposeful play activities, as we prepare our children for the new challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
