The Vita et Pax Nursery is dedicated to giving every child the best academic start to life in a happy and fun-filled environment. From the age of 3, our Nursery provides the highest level of nurture for children to confidently develop learning tools for their future. Our individualised learning with high academic standards focuses on the child being the centre of the learning journey. Planning around the child's interests ensures that every child can be their unique self as they flourish.

In the Nursery the children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and are taught to follow the values of Care, Share and be Fair. Staff plan stimulating activities around each individual child's interests to keep them captivated and intrigued in their learning journey. The children take part in adult and self led activities daily. We value parents highly as they are their child first educator and we welcome their input when goal setting for each child. We share each child's learning journey through our online journaling system called EExAT where parents are welcome to contribute joyful moments at home. We offer a broader curriculum through our early Phonics and Maths skills teaching, where the children have the use of prep schools vast learning resources. The children have access to an outside learning area where they are able to develop their education in their natural world, becoming inquisitive and independent learners. They are also taught PE, Spanish and Music by the specialist teachers from our prep school.
