At Nursery a large proportion of your child’s day is spent learning through play, both inside and outside. We would encourage you to let your child play at home. Here are some ideas:

  • Build with construction toys e.g. lego/duplo/sticklebricks
  • Complete jigsaws and play board games with you
  • Get outside in the garden/park for fresh air and exercise
  • Read and share story books and nursery rhymes with you
  • Explore with jugs, pots, pans, spoons etc. in the bath
  • Make up stories with small world figures e.g. dinosaurs, cars, dolls, pirates etc.
  • Develop finger strength with play dough, threading beads, cutting and sticking with old catalogues/magazines, drawing pictures and colouring
  • Do some baking together and measure the ingredients
