3 – 5 Years

Nursery School

This is our School Ready room catering for children aged 3-5 years who are getting ready to transition to primary school. It is designed to enable children to explore freely within the
environment preparing them for reception class and for their all important life experiences beyond nursery.

We provide a warm and friendly environment where children can explore the environment supported by our caring and experienced practitioners.

The set up of the continuous provision allows children to engage in activities of their choosing whilst practitioners interact sensitively to enhance activities and engage in critical thinking.

The children in the Nursery School also have access to the Nursery Classroom which provides a more formal learning environment where children are encouraged to extend their thinking and gain new skills using a range of up to date technology including an interactive whiteboard on which lots of learning games can be played. The children in Nursery School have access to the outdoor environment enabling the children to choose whether to explore the indoor or the outdoor environment

Observations are recorded by practitioners and used when planning next steps in children’s learning and development. Children’s own interests are also used to inform planning and to enhance areas of continuous provision appropriately.

Ashton Reynolds

School Readiness Co-Ordinator & Room Leader in Little Einsteins

I came to Le Monde Petit in January 2016 following the completion of my BA Honours degree in Education. I find it extremely satisfying to work with children knowing that I contribute towards their achievements. I am Room Leader and School Readiness Co-Ordinator in our nursery school room called Little Einsteins where we prepare the children for their transition to ‘big school’.

Zoe Byrom

Nursery Practitioner in Little Einsteins

I have worked at Le Monde Petit since March 2015 and I look after the 3-5 year olds in our Nursery School room with the Little Einsteins.  I have made great bonds with staff, children and parents. I am qualified to Level 3 in Childcare and have over 5 years previous experience working with children which is something I love doing.  Knowing I have contributed to their development and growing knowledge is extremely rewarding.  I speak fluent Spanish and have been teaching my little friends key words such as ‘Hola’, ‘Gracias’, ‘Por Favor’ and ‘Adios’.  Le Monde Petit has helped me develop new skills and confidence, it is such a good nursery to be at with all the friendly and helpful staff, and I really enjoy my time here.
