Falcons Nursery Chiswick

 

Welcome to our Nursery for boys and girls! We are proud to be a happy, fun and welcoming place for pupils, parents and staff.

Falcons Nursery Chiswick provides the first and most important steps in learning for boys and girls aged 2 to 4 years old.  It is an integral part of the Falcons Pre-Prep School, playing an important role in contributing to the culture and ethos of the whole school.

Provided we are able to meet all of your son’s needs as stated in the SEND section of our Admissions Policy, attendance at our Nursery guarantees automatic entry into Reception for all boys.  As a result, they are assured of a flying start as they move seamlessly into the main school.

For our Nursery girls, we will provide them with the foundation for preparing for both non-selective and selective schools.  We will support parents in the selection and application process to help them gain entry into one of the many wonderful independent or state schools in the area, depending on what is the best fit for your daughter and your family. 

 

Nursery Hours

 

All children attend 5 mornings: 8.30am to 12.30pm (inclusive of lunch). Breakfast Club is available from 7.45am.  Afternoon sessions are available 5 days a week and children are encouraged to attend at least 3 full days by the end of the summer term to prepare them for their start in Reception. The afternoon sessions end at 3.10 pm with additional care until 5.00pm included in the fees.  Late care is also available until 6.00pm at an additional cost.

Mini Falcons (2+)

Mini Falcons is for children aged 2-3 and is a part of our main Nursery.  The children spend many parts of the day with our 3-4 year olds.  Each child benefits from watching how the older children interact and have the opportunity to foster friendships across age ranges.   

Each child will be assigned a key person who will oversee his/her curriculum plan. 

Our curriculum is structured around four zones of the day: Play-based learning, directed learning, eating, and sleeping.  During each of the zones, our Mini Falcons will be guided by our team of expert teachers.   

Little Falcons (3+)  

Little Falcons is for children aged 3-4 and is a part of our main Nursery.  The children interact with our younger nursery children as well as having designated learning time for their development.  

Each child will be assigned a key person who will oversee his/her curriculum plan.  The Little Falcons curriculum model will be based on our proven Nursery curriculum with targeted times in the day for literacy and maths development along with all Early Years areas of learning, as stated by the DfE. 

We know that our 3 year olds will be ready for more structured, play-based learning and our team of experts will guide each child in a way that is developmentally appropriate.
