Our Facilities Nursery

Our nursery team have worked hard to create an environment that is inviting, fun, creative, and most importantly, child-centred. Our rooms offer flexible learning spaces, access to the outdoor learning area, Creation Station, discovery areas, reading nooks, and an interactive whiteboard and iPad suite.

We spend time in our outdoor learning area every day, which allows us access to our Curriculum Cabin, Mud Kitchen, Bug Hotel and an outdoor Art Gallery.

Every corner of every defined space has an identity and purpose, and provides opportunities for a variety of learning experiences. Staff carefully organise the space to allow for small and large group projects and also intimate spaces for one, two or three children to focus on specific activities. Our Hamilton College Nursery philosophy values play as an instrument in stimulating and shaping child development and early learning.

Through planned and spontaneous play experiences, children form relationships, develop resilience, share, cooperate, develop self-control, test ideas and friendships, extend their range of experiences and form associations amongst things, events and concepts.

A World Of Opportunities Under One Roof

Our nursery consists of four flexible spaces dedicated to PLAY, DISCOVER, LEARN.  All aspects of the curriculum are embedded in the learning experiences which take place across all four rooms.

Dedicated areas include:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy,
  • Technologies,
  • Music,
  • Imaginative play
  • Construction
  • Art and craft
  • Creation Station 
  • Junk modelling and collage
  • Sensory

A range of enrichment activities tailored for your child are held throughout the week.
