Nursery class

Little Owls


At Handcross, we recognise that children develop faster in the first years of their lives than at any other time. We want to ensure a smooth, happy and successful transition from home to nursery by working in partnership with parents to ensure the children have the best start possible to school.

We aim to develop the children personally, socially and emotionally by providing a safe, happy, stimulating environment. 


Our Early Years curriculum consists of three prime areas of learning:

  1. Personal, social and emotional development

  2. Communication and language

  3. Physical development

And four specific areas. These are:

  1. Literacy

  2. Mathematics

  3. Understanding the World

  4. Expressive Arts and Design

These seven areas are taught through child-initiated activities and open-ended topics which offer a range of experiences and opportunities using both the indoor and outdoor classrooms.
