Our curriculum is delivered through a play based approach that is designed to provide children with a great start in their education. We encourage independence and self belief and follow the interests of our children to support their learning. We also use events that are going on in the world around us to provide stimulating and context based learning.
We understand and appreciate the importance of the outdoor environment for our children. It is a continuation of our indoor provision and it will be used at every opportunity. At Indian Queens School and Nursery, we provide our children with opportunities to deepen their imaginations and also their sense of curiosity. We want the children to feel safe and secure at all times and ensure that our safeguarding procedures are rigorous and kept up to date. Communication is important to us and we greatly value the relationship that we develop with parents throughout this vital year
