Moira House Nursery offers the caterpillars and butterfly children the opportunity to be taught by specialist teachers which is inclusive of the fees. The children are able to enjoy the experience of swimming, French and dance. One of the biggest influences on a child’s development is the outdoor environment and at Moira House nursery this is a strong feature in our daily routine within the nursery. With a self-contained garden, furnished with a playhouse, sandpit and fort and extensive grounds that include the Junior School playground, lawned areas and free flow in the courtyard.
At Moira House nursery we pride ourselves in the quality, experience and highly qualified staff we have. We believe that the children benefit from the knowledge of an Early Years Teacher, who plans and leads the children’s learning with the support of expert and skilful nursery nurses.
Structure to a child’s everyday routine is invaluable in creating secure and happy children. We follow the EYFS curriculum as set out by the Department for Education (DfE). This way our children feel safe and secure and are confident in exploring unfamiliar territory in their daily activities and routines.
