Welcome to the Stephen Perse Nursery and Early Years virtual open day experience. It will introduce you to our approach to learning and development for our youngest pupils; why the first four years of life are a voyage of discovery, a time for play-based learning, being immersed in nature and developing their very own unique view of the world.

We will show you how Stephen Perse Nurseries provide high quality individualised care following the core Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, with qualified, motivated and experienced Early Years professionals working in partnership with parents to understand and shape each child’s social and educational development.
