At Regent Nursery, we believe that a bright, inviting, busy and exciting environment with lots to look at, play with, learn from and investigate is key to a child’s development. This is why we have developed the nursery to be a setting that children look forward to visiting and one that will stimulate their progression.
Regent Nursery Harrow offers six play areas for children plus a large outdoor area. The environment is set out to encourage self choice and independence. We ensure that resources and equipment are age appropriate for the children and will enhance their skills. All our rooms are dual purpose, meaning that multiple learning activities can be carried out there, to ensure that we meet the Early Years Foundation Stage requirements.
This room gives children the opportunity to use construction materials and to build their own models.
The Maths area invites children to learn and explore numbers.
The literacy corner encourages the children to investigate letters and learn how to use writing materials.
This room is used for musical activities and physical activities when the garden is out of use due to adverse weather conditions.
The children are encouraged to exercise daily and move around whilst undertaking activities to promote a healthy lifestyle.
This area is mainly used as our dining space for breakfast, lunch, tea and snacks.
We also use this area for cooking activities and the children make snacks for the nursery.
This area also contains a book area and children are encouraged to look at books daily.
