Little Vines Nursery

Our Little Vines Nursery (together with our Reception Year) offer the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision. Our recent Inspection report (January 2015) found us OUTSTANDING in ALL areas.

The Early Years of a child’s education are crucial to their future development, enjoyment and achievement. At Vinehall we provide high quality early learning through play for all children in a  happy, fun, caring and nurturing environment.  The youngest children, in joining Vinehall, find themselves in a vibrant, family atmosphere; whole school activities are adapted to include all the children from the youngest to the oldest.  Children have enjoyed participating in our Sports Day, plays, Jubilee and Olympic celebrations as well as workshops such as those run by Arsenal Sporty Tots and the English National Ballet.

Our Little Vines Nursery children are accommodated in the purpose-built Pre-Prep School which benefits from a hall for dance, music and gym activities as well as a library and art area.  The Nursery opens out on to a large, safe outdoor play area for the youngest children.  This outdoor area has imaginative and investigation zones as well as a woodland exploratory area with dens and logs for climbing over.  Wellington boots and waterproofs are essential!

We work closely with our families and have excellent communication links with our parents.  Many parents volunteer to help in our ‘Puzzle It Out’ sessions, encouraging the children to develop their thinking skills through traditional games and fun, challenging activities.  Throughout the Early Years we base the learning and play activities on the children’s existing stage of development and personal interests, providing stimulating experiences for every individual.
