Nursery Curriculum Information for Parents

Nursery in Pictures 

Welcome to Nursery

In Nursery we love to spend our days together being busy and learning through play.

We love to play, sing, dance, paint and get messy! We often come home looking a bit untidy and dirtier than we arrive but it’s all part of our learning and exploring. We learn a new Nursery Rhyme each week and practising at home is fully encouraged. There will be ideas of what can be done at home and we love it when photos and videos are shared with us so we can look at them together.

Our children are at the heart of our curriculum, ensuring they have the best possible start to school life and to prepare them for the rest of their learning journey here at Mackie Hill.


Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and the age of five have a major impact on their future life chances’.

(Early years Foundation Stage development matters).
