Worcester's Best Independent Nursery and Reception
Springfield independent Nursery and Reception provides our children with a magical first experience of school, offering the very best independent nursery, reception and primary school education. What makes Springfield so very special?
The staff are knowledgeable and a highly dedicated team, passionate about what they do. The children are taken on an educational journey that, due to its breadth and creativity, is hard to match. We believe that the capabilities of young children should never be underestimated and provide a supportive, nurturing and purposeful environment, removing any boundaries from learning in these early years.
In the Nursery, the environment stimulates their curiosity and the desire to learn and explore their world supporting each individual child’s talent and interests. This is a key time this in a child’s development and it is important to provide a curriculum that excites a joy for learning. We use a combination of play, child initiated and teacher-led activities.
All children have the use of whole school facilities within the extensive grounds. Our dedicated independent nursery practitioners are experts in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Sessions include high-quality teaching in music, French, swimming and dance. Visits to museums, art exhibitions, wildlife centres and theatres are organised alongside topics and children’s interests. Visitors to the school also provide interesting and specialist knowledge to extend learning.
As children move into the Reception class, they continue with the Early Years Curriculum, building on their confidence and independent learning.
Whether performing on stage, collaborating in Forest School or occupied inside, all our children become confident, independent learners with a desire for knowledge and a willingness to take risks. The skills that RGS Springfield imparts will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
The transition between Reception and Pre-Prep is designed to be seamless. Our Reception children regularly interact with children in Pre-Prep School, helping them to become familiar with the staff and departments.
