The Nursery team:
In Victoria Primary we believe that every child is unique and our curriculum is designed to reflect and meet the needs of each individual child. Our EYFS curriculum provides the keys to learning and development through rich opportunities, play, both direct teaching and teaching in the moment. It is enabled by positive relationships and a purposeful and engaging environment.
Our class patron is Charles Darwin.

Our first week in the Nursery
The nursery class is usually a child’s first formal school experience, designed to prepare our children for learning in the primary school setting and beyond.
The first day at school can be slightly rough for many children who are leaving their familiar environment of their homes for the first time and interacting with other children their age.
As teachers our role on the first day is to incorporate entertaining activities that will ease any child’s anxiety and boost their confidence so they can feel safe enough to explore and use her imagination.
We cannot wait to see you!
A warm welcome to all our children!
Look how we play and learn
