Children may find the move from nursery to primary school one that is both exciting and daunting – the parents do too! However, a solid pre-school education can ensure a smooth transition for your child.

At any stage of anyone’s life, a change of environment can be unsettling – for a child it can be even more so. It is a critical time; children are expected to take on new learning experiences all whilst coping with new surroundings.

A well-managed move from nursery to primary school can settle children more easily and give them a head start in learning and development.

Researchers recently estimated that the UK’s 15 year olds would have been ranked higher on the PISA literacy test had they all experienced more than a year of pre-schooling. This claim is based on an analysis of the test scores and their correlation with the early educational experience of pupils in the UK.

Apricot Nursery curriculum

At Apricot Nursery we build a curriculum planned around your child’s interests and stage of development. These are observed and monitored on a regular basis. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework is designed to teach and educate your child through fun and engaging activities.

These activities help to make the educational gap between nursery and primary much smaller and eases the transition for the child. Here is what to expect of a child throughout the EYFS stages from birth to five years old.
