A Nursery School day
The children are at the heart of everything we do at St Piran's, and so our day is planned to reflect their individual needs and interests.
The activities planned are a careful balance of adult led and child initiated activities. We believe that there is no area of the curriculum which cannot be enhanced through outdoor learning, and so ensure that the children benefit from free-flow opportunities throughout the day.
At the beginning of each day, parents are warmly welcomed into the setting. This is a valuable time to share learning experiences, as well as a chance to catch up and chat informally with your child's key worker. Throughout the week, the curriculum is enriched by specific activities, taught by the specialist staff your children will encounter throughout their whole school career.
