The children in Nursery, Reception and Pre-Prep are genuinely cared for by the adults who look after them and help them to learn. Relationships with staff, friends and other children are so important. Our ‘Learning Powers’ encourage the skills we are looking for to encourage our children to be enthusiastic learners who develop a love of learning from the moment they join us.
These skills foster an overriding sense of independence, a willingness to have a go and the ability to try again. It allows them to ask questions, seek answers, work successfully as a team and be proud of every achievement. It is our responsibility to help the children as they begin their learning journey and build these important relationships. Their curiosity and creativity are encouraged in a safe, secure and stimulating environment and coupled with the Great Walstead School’s core values (The Walstead Way) help them become independent confident learners willing to take risks, make mistakes and build on their learning as they progress through the school. It is a privilege to be part of your child’s life and education.
