Calshot Primary school offers a choice of morning or afternoon Nursery places. The nursery is housed in a purpose-built extension to the original school building and serves up to 26 children in each session from the September after their third birthday. A wide range of activities are offered to cover each aspect of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

These activities include:

  • Role Play Areas
  • Cooking/Taste testing
  • Small World Toys
  • Modelling and Construction
  • Sand and Water Areas
  • A variety of ICT resources including iPads
  • An extensive range of books
  • A programme of regular phonics teaching

In particular, at Calshot Nursery we are proud of our well resourced, interactive outdoor play area, which allows us to take the classroom outside every day in all weathers; providing equal learning opportunities both inside and out. Our outdoor area has dedicated planting beds and a large grassed lawn allowing room for football, obstacle courses and even our very own sports day each summer.

We believe that our Nursery provides the best possible foundation for any child, particularly those who are intending to continue their educational career within our Primary School. Children who attend our Nursery can expect to receive a high level of education which will engage them in an enjoyable learning experience, with high standards of behaviour and achievement.
