About Us

Our Curriculum

 

St Augustine's Nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage framework which promotes a child-centred approach focused on a combination of individual needs, environment and the contribution of the adults and professionals involved as a whole.

 

This covers 7 areas of development:

  • Personal, social and emotional

  • Communication and language

  • Physical

  • Literacy

  • Mathematics

  • Understanding the world

  • Expressive arts and design

 

We plan our activities according to the children’s interests, needs and age to support every child's development. 

St Augustine's Nursery is taking part in the Healthy Early Years London (HEYL) awards scheme funded by the Mayor of London, which supports and recognises achievements in child health, well being and development in early years settings in the capital.

We have been awarded a silver award for promoting the children's health, emotional well being and learning of the young children in our care through a range of activities and support to families. 

Ofsted has classified the Nursery as 'Good'. You can download the latest report here.
