Our Little Vines Nursery (together with our Reception Year) offers 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 in a happy, fun and caring environment.  The youngest children are nurtured in a vibrant, family atmosphere and participate joyfully in whole school activities and celebrations.

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 area has imaginative and investigation zones, a mud kitchen and 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.
