|Small World Nursery was started in August 1996 by King’s Church who own the nursery. We have always maintained a strong family ethos supporting families in the important task of raising their children and encouraging them to have a love of learning through exploration, fun and challenge in a safe place.|
Our approach starts from the premise that all children are individual and use many different ways, or learning languages, to express their wonderings, their creativity, their needs and their ideas. At Small World Nursery we respect the children’s voices as they guide their own learning.
We value the child as central to their own learning, not simply an empty vessel waiting to be filled with knowledge. We recognise that all children are unique and have different experiences and our approach allows children to be curious, pursue their own interests and revisit and build upon ideas at their own pace. Our curriculum is designed to recognise children’s prior learning from previous settings and their experiences at home, provide first hand learning experiences, whilst allowing the children to build resilience, ambition and integrity. Every child is recognised as a unique individual and we celebrate and welcome differences within our nursery.
Our nursery embraces ‘The Curiosity Approach’ which encourages children to spark curiosity and let the children lead the way.
