Home Learning Resources

We know that missing Nursery isn’t easy for your children - or for you.  However, we also know that there are simple ways to turn unexpected time at home into exciting opportunities for children to learn, think, and grow.

Here are some ideas and some links that your children will enjoy and should be able to be completed with little or no adult support.  However, if you are ale to support your child with this learning - it is always more fun to learn together!
