Welcome to Miss Daisy's Nursery
Miss Daisy's aim was to create a village nursery school in the heart of London, where the education offered is a balance between formal learning and learning through play. The school offers a strong sense of community and provides a warm and nurturing environment. There is an excellent child adult ratio to ensure the children are getting the best possible care at this important stage of their learning journey.
Key to the ethos at Miss Daisy’s is that the children actively lead their own development with no pressure on them in any way. From the day a new child starts at Miss Daisy’s, the school is geared up towards gentle preparation for the next step. Starting with the morning greeting with the Headmistress, lining up with the rest of the class, hanging up coats on individual pegs, through to learning to read and write.
The younger children start with three mornings a week, as we feel they benefit more from attending school in the mornings and not in the afternoons when they are so young. After half term, they can progress in their own time to attend the full five mornings. Miss Daisy's Nursery School offers morning places for the Nursery Year (two rising three) and full days for the Kindergarten Year (three years). Please note that we only offer a September intake each year, new children can not join the school in the spring or summer term.
We have a very gentle settling in policy, where there is no pressure put on the children. At the very start, all we focus on is that the children are happy and feel settled in their new environment.
The full days are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. This is available for all children aged three years old and over. The children bring a lunch box to school and spend the day at school. This is fantastic preparation for the following year when they join their next schools in Reception and will be expected to attend full days every day.
Each day, the children play outside in the garden and the afternoon school is very much based on learning through play.
Miss Daisy's Nursery is the first step on the education ladder and it is of paramount importance that it is the right step. Children leave Miss Daisy's confident and happy, with enthusiasm and a thirst for knowledge. 'We want them running to school'.
