Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


Welcome to the Little Explorer's Nursery!

We warmly welcome you into our family. Here are Short Heath we offer two Nursery sessions:

9.00am – 12.00pm – morning session

12.15pm – 3.15pm – afternoon session

Nursery Curriculum

Nursery and Reception is planned to include all seven areas of learning outlined in the Early Years Foundation Scheme (EYFS) framework. These are PSED, Physical Development, Communications and Language, Maths, Literacy, Understanding of the World, Expressive Art and Design. Effective early learning is promoted in the Academy’s Early Years curriculum, through playing and exploring, creating and thinking critically, and active learning.

Throughout school, we want our parents to be fully involved in the education we deliver to their children. We know that it takes a community to fully raise a child, and will therefore be sharing information with you throughout our journey together. This includes curriculum overviews, where you will learn about the topics that we are covering in school throughout the academic year. 


If you have a child who was born between September 1st 2017 and 31st August 2018 then we would love them to join our Nursery in September 2021.
