Owlets Nursery

Our new Nursery is part of a thriving village Primary School in Smallfield. Graded as a ‘Good’ school by Ofsted.

Some spaces are still available – please call Debbie to reserve a space on Tel 01342 842010 or download our admission form here and complete and hand in to the school office.

What is our philosophy?

Our philosophy is based on nurturing strong, wholesome values and a life-long love of learning. We have exciting learning environments indoors and outdoors.  We do things a little bit differently in our Nursery and this is what makes what we offer very special.

We teach children how to be more self-aware, confident and able to adapt their thinking ready to embrace what the world will be like when they are adults.

How do we do this?

Children learn the skill of meditation, helping them to become focused, self- reflective and independent thinkers. We develop children to become methodical experimenters, confident speakers and understand how to face challenges and get through them.

Alongside how to make friends, learning letter sounds and key literacy and number skills, how to adapt thinking to be positive and unafraid of having a go at something, whether it fails or succeeds.

This is a key skill which directly correlates to success in English and Maths at the end of Year 2 and Year 6.

Brave and fearless learners leave our Nursery fully prepared and eager to move into our wonderful Reception classes.

What are parents saying?

“I was so excited this morning, Oliver wrote letter ‘T’ all by himself and brought it to show me, saying ‘ttttt’ tower! Wow! It’s only his second week!” Oliver’s mum. 

Interested in a fresh, gentle way for your child to begin their learning journey?

Come in and visit us!  If you would like to come and see what we are all about give the school office a call to book a tour.

We look forward to seeing you.

Mindfulness and meditation is not new by any means! Reaping the benefits for children is becoming widely acclaimed. Here are a few links to external websites, including Harvard University, that make interesting reading.
