The Early Years Foundation Stage at OLA has two well-equipped indoor learning environments.
Our Nursery is based over two floors and has easy access to a large, safe and stimulating outdoor play area. There is plenty of room for inquisitive children to explore inside and out.
A peaceful and attractive classroom, located in the historic part of the school, is linked to a purpose-built kitchen and wet room, ensuring that our children enjoy the widest possible range of experiences and an excellent educational foundation.
Reception is based in a large room, specially equipped to encourage child-initiated learning and develop children’s learning through a carefully planned curriculum based on national recommendations.
A spacious and well-resourced garden allows children the opportunity to explore the world around them. Hosting a Mud Kitchen, Sand Pit, Rainbow Sensory Garden, Play House, Water Wall and much more, the children are provided with many varied and exciting opportunities for learning and development.
