Birth to Three Centres of Excellence

St. Paul's Children's Centre and Nursery School

The Baby Room

At St Paul’s Nursery School & Children’s Centre our Baby Room is a cosy space with loving and passionate practitioners who are attuned to each child’s individual needs. They are skilled at observing and listening to young children to interpret what they are communicating.
Planning is individualised, based on careful observation and knowledge of each child. Resources are carefully selected for stimulating interest and curiosity, offering problem solving opportunities to engage the babies in critical thinking. We believe that every child is unique and highly capable. We acknowledge that their brains are developing most rapidly at this stage and from the moment children start with us we help them to develop their learning power.

Two to Three Year Olds

Our 2-3 year olds are in an adjoining room and the teams work closely together to ensure good transitions for children. Our children are engaged deeply in the process of learning and are not inhibited by the need for end products. Creativity is highly valued and the children’s interests and fascinations are well supported through thoughtful planning. Children’s learning is well documented and highly visible and includes the child’s and parent/ carer’s voice.

We are fortunate to have an amazing garden which provides a wealth of natural learning opportunities.

Visits to St Paul’s will especially support your interest in:

  • reflective Planning - we use white boards which pose researchful questions and have developed a reflective planning wheel which enables us to look below the surface of what children are doing
  • documenting children’s learning in a meaningful and inclusive way.
  • enabling children to understand themselves as learners.
  • deepening engagement and support for children and families from different ethnicities, cultures and linguistic backgrounds.
  • developing and using your outdoor area for learning opportunities.
