The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn’. Maria Montessori 


 A very big welcome to the Nursery page! The teachers, myself , Mrs Kaur and Mrs Vunduk will be sharing all the real, immersive and purposeful experiences that happen every day in Nursery, as we work alongside your child in beginning their learning journey at Victoria Park Primary Academy.

We are looking forward to hearing your child’s interests, and will use these to explore and share with your child lots of special times together. We will work collaboratively as one big family in Nursery to promote learning experiences through child led activities and through our NICER curriculum challenges.

We focus on three main challenges during the year; ‘You and Me’, ‘Me and my school’ and ‘Me and my friends’. During the year there will be several exciting experiences linked to these challenge packs where parents will be actively encouraged to work in partnership with Nursery. We can’t wait to start alongside your child on their VPA journey to become the best that we can be!
