Welcome to Dartmouth Academy Nursery
We are a small, all-through academy. Staff get to know children and their families very well indeed. Together, we are able to develop a caring community. Children in nursery learn through play, and also have a mixture of whole class, small group and individual activities with lots of opportunities to follow their own choice of play.
We have daily Read Write Ink phonics sessions where the children are learning initial sounds, finger gym, music, pen pals for writing, action songs, number rhymes, fun fit and forest school.
Children enjoy a range of planned activities such as messy play, mud kitchen, sand, water, home corner, book corner, play dough, brick area painting and much more. We aim to develop a love of reading through sharing stories, rhymes and many activities are planned around a book theme. We encourage children to take books home to share with parents. We plan activities to cover all areas of the Early Years Curriculum and respond to children’s interests.
Parents are welcome to visit the Early Year Foundation Stage to see what we have to offer your child.
