We have two Ponies Rooms in the Nursery, Ponies 1 is for children aged from 2½ to about 3½ years old. In this room, the children are introduced to a more structured day and begin to learn their numbers and letters. The children are encouraged to be independent and to relish the daily activities and challenges prepared for them.
The second Ponies Room completes your child’s first stage of their journey at Fairstead House. This room is specifically tailored to prepare children for Reception whilst still having huge amounts of fun!
Strong foundations continue to be laid in both rooms, developing children’s self-confidence, self-awareness and independence. The children are given opportunities to hone their control and co-ordination in both large and small movements. Language skills continue to develop, with the exciting addition of Mandarin and Spanish. The children’s natural curiosity of the world around them is encouraged and explored.
The children are required to wear a simple and comfortable Nursery uniform in these two rooms. Uniform may be purchased online from the Fairstead House Uniform Shop.
The transition for the Ponies children to Reception is very smooth. The little ones join the School for a weekly assembly and they are all part of our very youngest school choir, the Seedlings.
