LEARNING & PLAY

Rocking Horse Nursery and Pre School is a unique setting that offers children the independent freedom they require to develop and grow. We believe in children exploring the world at their own pace with the guidance of adults through creativity, free play and experimentation, with outside learning being central to their learning experience.

Our old school building has its own bell tower (which still works!) and has a lovely traditional feel whilst offering a homely and fun environment and cutting edge education to make sure that every child is ready for school.

We offer a large variety of exciting and purposeful furniture, toys and resources. Our nursery has three learning areas, babies (3 months – 2.5 years ) this is a cosy, exciting learning environment and has free flow into our beautiful cottage garden, toddlers and pre-schoolers are joined together in a large free flow environment. The mezzanine floor houses our pre-school classroom, which is used for focus group times.

The children also free flow into the ‘Hive’ – our creative space. Toddlers and pre-school also have access to our two beautiful garden spaces. The cottage garden consists of a vegetable patch, wooden play house and plenty of climbing opportunities. Our Playzone garden consist of a climbing frame, sand pit and plenty of opportunity for role play and exploration.

The ages of the children in each room are estimated, as each child is transitioned from one room to another, based on their own personal development. This ensures that we challenge and engage with the children at the correct level.
