Outdoor learning at our Nursery  

Outdoor learning is a big part of what we do at Thorpe Hall Nursery. Children love exploring our on-site forest area, getting hands-on and learning from nature – whatever the weather!

For these young age groups especially, experiences like this make a big difference and are proven to help foster resilience, independence, problem solving, cooperation and curiosity. But, just like with all our actvities in the Nursery, the children just see it as good old play!

Our Nursery provision is available to children from 2 years old. Early registration is recommended to avoid disappointment.

Children at Thorpe Hall Nursery benefit from the extensive facilities the school can offer. As well as our own forest area this includes huge fields, deluxe sporting facilities, our own theatre, library and dedicated art and music spaces.  All this is in addition to our architect-designed, custom-built indoor and outdoor play areas and learning spaces. Our nursery rooms and resources are carefully laid out to encourage free flow of movement and independent exploration, helping to enhance each child’s development and personality across the entire range of imaginative, creative, social and academic curricula.

We embrace the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum but pride ourselves on adding so much more. Our weekly programme of enrichment activities offers specialist teaching in a range of subjects including Music, Dance, Drama, Sport, Cookery, French, Swimming, Computer Skills, Art and Yoga.

Our staff are well trained, experienced and dedicated to creating a caring, loving environment where children feel happy and secure. Our nursery has an intimate, homely feel while providing opportunities that help prepare our children for their ongoing education, ether at Thorpe Hall School or elsewhere.
