Our Nursery at Mowden is situated in a beautiful purpose built suite within the Pre-Prep building. The space leads directly onto the outdoor classroom and is surrounded by nature.
Mowden Hall School and Nursery offers nursery places for children who are ‘rising three’. Children may join Mowden at staggered points during the year, with their education individually tailored to their stage of development. For example, children who turn three during the Autumn term may enter the Nursery at the beginning of the Autumn term in September. This is also the case for the Spring and Summer terms.
The emphasis is on learning through play where reading, writing and number skills are developed through playful, appropriately targeted activities. The aim is to develop the child’s motor, intellectual, creative, social and language skills in the warm family atmosphere, which is one of the strengths of Mowden.
Our Nursery children have the opportunity to learn French, participate in swimming lessons and benefit from Physical Education and music, weekly woodland classroom sessions all taught by specialist staff who understand the importance of instilling a love for learning and curiosity at this young age.
All our staff take great care in ensuring that each of our children feels happy and special.
Children who join us in the nursery move up to Reception at the start of the academic year in which they turn five. The environment and experience of the Nursery at Mowden Hall School prepares children to progress seamlessly through the rest of the school.
