Life at Heywood Prep


Children starting at the Nursery at the age of two join our Acorn & Sapling classes, each of no more than 7 children per classroom. 


The emphasis for this group is on social interaction, helping the children to become familiar with the routines and gaining their independence.

The children are also encouraged to explore and learn through play and to sit quietly when listening to stories and doing the morning register. Art and craft activities help to develop manipulative skills and music is introduced so that the children learn to recognise songs and simple rhythms.

Self-awareness, independence and responsibility are achieved by carrying out routine tasks such as washing hands and putting coats on.

Please find below the two younger classes classroom timetable and their class newsletters.
