Literacy involves reading and writing.
The Nest staff teach children to recognise, say phonetically and write the alphabet. Using the “Read Write Inc” scheme children learn a new letter sound each week and this early acquisition of the alphabet gives children a “head start” for their Reception Year. Rhyme World, a Nursery Rhyme based approach, allows children to recognise rhythm, rhyme, syllables in words and pattern in language.
A love of books and stories is fostered through staff reading to the children, daily, and with access to the Pre-Prep library and Nursery book shelves
