Nursery School and Gr-R

Childhood is a magical time for the child and parents alike; at Rosemarie Nursery school we understand the importance of development, we believe in developing a solid physical foundation as well as socially and emotionally mature children who have the ability to reach their cognitive potential.

Dr David Feuerstein, a child psychologist, once said that a child only needs 3 things to thrive:

  • A caring adult
  • Who unlocks the world
  • And gives it meaning

At Rosemarie nursery school we believe these 3 things are evident in our staff, environment and curriculum.

We believe in play, innocence and the joy of being a child.

Our staff and assistants are fully qualified and often attend courses to keep their knowledge and skill up to date.
