Welcome to Nursery

Every child at Mount Pleasant deserves the best possible start in life with support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Our children learn to be strong and independent through developing positive relationships. Learning and development opportunities are planned around the needs and interests of each individual and are assessed and reviewed regularly. ​ We continue to develop a stronger partnership, working between practitioners and parents and/or carers. 


There are seven areas of learning and development that must shape the way we teach children at Mount Pleasant in our early years setting. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three areas, the prime areas, are:

·         communication and language;

·         physical development; and

·         personal, social and emotional development.


Teachers and teaching assistants also support children in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:


·         literacy; 

·         mathematics; 

·         understanding the world; and

·         expressive arts and design.
