We are excited to welcome you to our child- friendly nursery section. The nursery experience should be an exciting and critical time in your child’s development and we all should play important roles to make it wonderful and fun for the children. We realise that choosing the right care centre for one’s child is one of the most difficult decisions parents face; hence, our mission is to establish Imperial Gate School as the first choice of nursery to parents seeking quality care and development for their children.
We offer the very highest standards of care and learning in a cosy, exciting and stimulating environment where a child can grow and develop in all spheres. Each child is treated equally and with respect, as an individual with his/her own personality. We encourage our children to grow and develop at their own pace with daily activities that are varied, stimulating, imaginative and creative.
Our nursery group consists of the Playgroup, Preschool, Nursery One and Two. The Preschool is a pleasant and warm environment where your child is provided with the opportunity and necessary support to develop appropriately in potty training, eating habits and speaking.
Enjoyment is provided for free play, circle time, story time, singing and structured play so that social skills can evolve. Each day provides new experiences involving sand, water, building blocks and theme play to encourage the full development of your child. Children will learn the basic development skills involving colours, shapes, counting, scribbling and writing. Play is viewed as a vital time to explore and interact with peers and things in the environment. Social interaction is strongly encouraged to enhance their social and emotional development.
In addition to the social and emotional development, the nursery children are encouraged to explore the world around them. Stimulating, exciting and demanding activities will give your child the head start needed to get ready for primary school.
As a team and as individuals, our first priority is your child’s education and wellbeing while at school. We work hard to see that each child receives the greatest benefits of our educational programme which focuses on the six areas of learning. We are excited about our strong team; we have a great combination of talented teachers with qualities that complement and bring out the best in one another. We enjoy working together; sharing ideas and helping our children become readers and learners for life!
Phonics is always an exciting and rewarding experience as the bedrock for formation of words, reading, writing and spelling; you will be amazed at what your little ones would do at the end of their nursery education.
So, come on board!
