A fine beginning at Nursery

At Little Martin's and St Martin's Pre-Prep, we believe that the environment plays a crucial role in supporting children’s learning and development. That’s why we have created a warm, welcoming, and stimulating environment that inspires creativity and a love of learning. Through our curiosity approach, child-initiated exploration, 'wild and free' sessions, and a balance of indoor and outdoor provision, we meet our early learning goals through immersive and interactive sessions led by our pupils' interests.

Our environment encourages children to be as independent as possible. With access to paints, paintbrushes, pens, paper, and craft materials whenever they wish, our children can unleash their creativity and produce fantastic pieces of art, which they can choose to keep at school or take home. At Little Martin's and St Martin's Pre-Prep, we believe that the environment is not only essential for supporting children’s learning and development but also for promoting their overall health and wellbeing. That’s why we prioritise healthy habits, such as nutritious eating, regular exercise, and ample rest and relaxation.

Outdoor Opportunities

At Little Martin's Nursery, children enjoy a safe, enclosed play area with an exceptional learning forest that provides stimulating outdoor spaces for year-round activities. Our extensive outdoor provision is perfect for exploration, where children can discover minibeasts, grow flowers, fruits, and vegetables, and engage in imaginative play in the mud kitchen or our 'wild and free' outdoor forest classroom. Our outdoor facilities offer a wealth of learning and physical opportunities for our little ones to develop and grow.

Our children revel in the freedom to explore the natural world, fostering a sense of wonder and curiosity. The outdoor classroom provides a dynamic learning environment where children can engage with nature, developing important skills and a love for the outdoors. Whether they are digging in the mud, hunting for bugs, or planting their own garden, every moment spent outside is an opportunity for discovery and growth.
