At Fairview we are lucky to have our very own nursery - the wonderful Caterpillars!
There are two nursery sessions each day, the morning session is from 8.45am - 11.45am and the afternoon session is from 12.45pm - 3.45pm. Children can attend either morning or afternoon sessions, they cannot be mixed.
Caterpillars nursery provides children with a fantastic environment for learning which allows them to become fully immersed in meaningful learning opportunities which extend their natural curiosity and inspire creative thinking. The children are encouraged and supported to develop their own independence and an enthusiastic attitude towards learning, fully preparing them for their transition into Reception.
In Caterpillars children learn through a careful balance of child-initiated play and adult directed activities which are based on their interests. Children have access to a wonderful outdoor space and take part in Forest School activities throughout the year.
Learning is based on topics and themes inspired by the children's own interests. In order to make the learning meaningful to the children, we plan for various opportunities which immerse them in hands on experiences. In the past we have had visits from firemen, Wild Science (holding snakes and tarantulas!), farm animals, story workshops and hatching our own ducklings from eggs!
Attendance at the Nursery does not automatically give your child a place in Reception when they are eligible, this place has to be applied for online via Medway Council.
Please contact the school office for further information or to add your child to our waiting list.
