NURSERIES FOR BUSY LITTLE BEES!

Last Updated on : 12th February 2020

Roosha Sue, Head of Eaton House The Manor Nursery and Head of Early Years for Eaton House Group of Schools on what makes Eaton House Nurseries so special and what to look for when choosing a genuinely nurturing nursery

Miss Roosha

Nurseries come in all shapes and sizes and finding an independent nursery that suits your child’s needs is an important, yet enjoyable, process.

At Eaton House Schools, we have two bright and dynamic nurseries at Eaton House The Manor on Clapham Common and at Eaton House Belgravia with a new additional Nursery Class in Eaton House Belgravia opening in September 2020, due to high demand.

Entering a nursery which is part of an academic Pre-Prep (and later Prep) sister school can make your life much easier down the line.

Eaton House Schools avoids selecting children at age 3-5 in the Nursery or Pre-Prep as we truly believe that certain forms of higher intelligence do not develop until well past the age of 5, and testing can put undue pressure on such young children. What we offer is a nurturing pathway for each child as they rise naturally into the Pre-Prep, allowing for a seamless transition and working at the right pace for each child.

We ensure that our nurseries are wonderful, stimulating and magical spaces with a varied timetable of gentle play and ‘lessons’ that enable our Nursery children to confidently zoom past their milestones. With this in mind, consider nurseries like those at Eaton House The Manor where there are three intakes a year, in September, January and April. This means that summer babies are not disadvantaged and that they play with children at a similar age and stage.

As children develop at different times and we advise parents to beware of nurseries that promise that ‘all children will read’ when they leave. Our Pre-Prep and Prep results prove that nurture not pushing is the right approach for long-term success.

Look for nurseries that are warm and welcoming. Both of our nurseries in Clapham and Belgravia are are local ‘hubs’ for parents and children. In Clapham, we have two lovely but distinct rooms for the ‘cubs’ and the ‘bears’ – our older and younger nursery children –  with free flow play into a large dedicated playground with a pirate ship, a wooden Wendy House, dedicated games spaces, sand and water play, and much more.

The whole nursery is magical – light, bright and equipped with every kind of educational learning tool, from interactive white boards to quiet reading tents, to ensure that our little ones get the very best start possible. Every child is known and monitored very carefully and they are busy little bees!

When choosing a nursery, ask the teacher to pupil ratio, and whether the play is structured by subject and season. You might also like to ask how many ‘extra’ activities are on the agenda – like mini yoga, dress up corner, gym, languages, art and craft and cooking? Your children are not there simply to attend day care but to build independence, learn, grow and get school-ready.

Children in the nursery classroom

The ideal nursery school aims to make a difference each day, putting the wellbeing of your little ones front and centre of all that they do, aiming to give each child a fun, exciting and memorable learning experience.

Happiness should always be the top priority when choosing a nursery for your child and your instinct is always the best barometer of whether the fit with any nursery is right for you and your family. It’s a good idea to pay a visit to the nursery you are interested in and really soak up the atmosphere.  You should speak to the Head Teacher, watch the children play and look carefully at how big a part wellness and wellbeing plays in the children’s early education. After all, the first steps that your child takes on his or her educational journey are so important, and a kind and gentle approach to the wonderful world of learning is critical.

At Eaton House The Manor Nurseries, individual assessment, the wellbeing of each child and the possibility of daily interaction with every parent or carer at the end of the day is of the utmost importance. We come to know the strengths of our charges well and delight in their personalities. This helps to create a smooth transition for those boys who move up to Eaton House The Manor Pre-Prep School and those girls that join Eaton House The Manor Girls’ School, both at age four.

Your gut reaction will tell you when you feel happy and reassured with what you see at any nursery that you visit, and that feeling will guide you instinctively to the place where your child will be happy too.

If you would like to contact us about Eaton House The Manor Nursery or ask about the new additional Belgravia Nursery class for September 2020, please contact Sam Feilding, Head of Admissions, Eaton House Schools, on 0203 917 5050 or email sfeilding@eatonhouseschools.com.
