Learning Through Play

Here at Sandhurst Station Nursery, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stages and we support a child's development by allowing them to learn through play.

Through play and with the use of educational toys, children learn many different skills they will need in their life such as:

  • social and cognitive skills,

  • Problem solving and learning cause and effect

  • Learning how to play with others through compromise, conflict resolution and sharing

  • Development of fine and gross motor skills

  • Nurturing their creativity and imagination

  • Discovering their independence and positive self-esteem

It also helps a child to mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments.
