As educators we believe that children are equipped with enormous potential for learning from the moment they are born. In their early years, every experience a child has contributes to their understanding of the world around them and their place in it. We want to make Radnor House Prep School a beacon for Early Years education where young children will feel at home and ﬂourish in our Nursery.
The Nursery and Reception will be linked by a covered outdoor play area and the Early Years rooms will be fully refurbished to the highest of speciﬁcations. Our Early Years curriculum will combine the Early Years Foundation goals with elements of Montessori teaching to create child-initiated learning. Practical life activities using real objects in real situations will be crucial, and time will be given to children to repeat and reﬁne these skills. Independence will be nurtured right from the very beginning through everyday routines, under the enthusiastic, watchful eyes of an experienced Early Years team.
All children will spend 5 mornings per week in the Nursery, with afternoons as optional until the final term before they transition into Reception.
