We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. This offers a holistic, play-based approach to care, development and education for children aged from 0-5 years.

Research shows that, rather than being an alternative to "proper learning", play is the best and most natural way for children to grow and develop as confident, happy individuals and successful learners (which is probably why they like it so much).

The garden at St Mary's Nursery

At St. Mary's Nursery, Horsham, we blend free play with adult-initiated crafts and games to create a vibrant, balanced range of activities. Our range of safe, high-quality resources includes everything from CD-roms to play-dough which the children have made themselves.
