Learning environments

John Brotchie Nursery School has large, spacious and well equipped spaces to explore and learn. All our learning environments are vibrant and flexible spaces that are responsive to the interests and needs of the children.

We see our children as competent, creative and imaginative. Therefore our environment gives them opportunities to:

  • make decisions
  • discover
  • be curious
  • ask and answer questions
  • work collaboratively with others
  • delight in nature and the unexpected.

Both indoors and outside our children have a choice of experiences from our core curriculum areas:

  • creative arts
  • literacy and numeracy
  • construction and building
  • dramatic play
  • problem solving
  • technology
  • literature.

Our learning environments are created to be inspirational, a source of wonder and delight. They are functional and aesthetically pleasing. The experiences and resources reflect current skills, interests, and emergent skills of the children. We believe relationships flourish in a nurturing, interesting and pleasing environment.

Exposure to the natural environment is proven to have a positive effect on mental and physical health in both adults and children. At John Brotchie we aim to create a natural play space that provides a variety of opportunities to experience nature.
