Welcome to Young Explorers

We would like to give a warm welcome to all of our children in Young Explorers this year. We are now settling into our new classroom, getting to know our new friends and are ready for the busy year ahead.

The Young Explorers nursery classroom provides a stepping stone for 2-3 year-old children into school life at Marsh Green Primary. Each child’s specific needs are met through careful planning, that supports children as inquisitive, confident explorers who learn through play.

Communication and language development is a consistent focus. We support children’s development by providing a rich language environment, where conversations, singing and sharing stories become a regular part of the children’s day.

The children can access a range of activities both indoors and outdoors daily, these free-flow spaces allow the children to make links within their learning, become resilient problem solvers and gain independence

We will be starting the ‘open story time’ in a couple of weeks once all of our children have settled in and are familiar within their new surroundings. This is a chance to spend time with your child and enjoy sharing their favourite stories within Young Explorers.
