About Our Nursery School
Little Oaks Nursery Selsted
We are located adjacent to Selsted Primary School near Hawkinge. Ideally situated close to Dover, Folkestone and Canterbury enabling us to welcome children aged two years plus from these local communities.
Our small and friendly team encourages children to reach their individual potential with an emphasis on learning within the outdoor enviroment.
Easter Holiday Club - Fantastic success
Great reviews from the children and parents regarding the Easter Holiday Club. Canterbury scavenger hunt was an exciting challenge for the children that they thoroughly enjoyed, using their orienteering and observation skills to solve the clues and find the relevant objects.
Investing in People
All staff will be attending a funky feet training workshop in order that daily music and movement sessions can be introduced within the settings activities. This is a fun way to engage and motivate children to move and develop both their body and brain. More information can be found on the Funky Feet website where parents can purchase music cds and books so they can join in with the fun at home.(www.funkyfeet.com)
Why Maths Matters
Maths in the early years gives our youngest children the opportunity to build foundations in knowledge and skills which will help them to become numerate, confident problem solvers.
If we do not teach children from a very early age to be confident in their mathematical development and learn skills and knowledge they need for a strong foundation maths, then they lose confidence maths, fall behind at school and have low numeracy skills as an adult. Visit our blog for information on how you can support your child at home.
