Kate Greenaway 2-5 year nursery 1

Unlike many other settings, at Kate Greenaway our two to rising five year olds are all part of the same ‘class’. They share the same space and access the same activities. We plan the environment, resources and activities carefully so that each child can access them at their own level. We believe that the children gain considerably from mixing with others of different ages, for example in their language development.

Through observation and conversations with families we get to know each child well, which helps us to adapt our interactions to meet their developmental needs.
