At FountNursery, it’s a priority for us to create a home from home for our children. We recognise that children need to have secure relationships with adults in order to flourish. Central to this is our belief that each child is unique and has a talent that will be nurtured at FountNursery.
We have created spaces for children to be active and to rest, both inside and outside. We follow the Government’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. Children will experience several areas of learning throughout their time at FountNursery, from indoor activities, garden activities or local trips to London Fields, Victoria Park, Hackney City Farm, V&A Childhood Museum, as well as walks both local and further afield. Our unique approach is inspired by the best philosophical practices within the Early Years field, for example:
- Maria Montessori: who believed in creating children who are independent and self- sufficient.
- The Reggio Emilia approach: which builds on children’s creativity where they take a lead in their learning and development.
- Theorists such as Susan Isaac and Fredrick Frobel, who recognised the importance of play, in developing children who are grounded in their emotional health and well being.
At FountNursery, relationships matter to us. We aim to build a positive and professional relationship with you, and your child, throughout your time with us. When your child starts at FountNursery they will be allocated a key person. Your child’s key person will welcome you, and help you and your child to settle into the nursery.
