At Nottinghill our goal is to meet every child’s individual needs by being sensitive to each child’s personality and growth development. Children have the opportunity to learn through play with a variety of play areas to support learning, complimented by our daily circle time. Our goal is for your child to develop their self-esteem and confidence to equip them for their future education.
We offer two programs for 3-year-olds: 3AM and 3PM (Full-time | Part-time). Classes run from September to June.
- All activities and learning are structured around weekly themes
- Teaching children essential skills through daily educational circles, calendar review and creative activities
- Letters and number recognition through hands-on learning tools
- Teaching literacy through Jolly Phonics, a fun and child centered approach to teaching literacy through phonics; with actions for each of the letter sounds, the multi-sensory method is very motivating for children
- Explore gross and fine motor skills through creative activities, extra-curriculars and outdoor play
We value communication between Nottinghill staff and parents and have put in place a number of communication channels:
E-mail | Newsletter | Monthly Calendars | Website | Social Media | Remind Mobile Application
