Learning together is fun at Bearwood School Nursery

Our Nursery day

The Nursery morning is a balance of adult led learning opportunities and children’s choice of play activities.

Adult led activities take advantage of our well resourced school and can take place in the classroom, outdoor learning area, computer suite, music room, library or cooking area.
