Nursery (Rising 3 - 4 Years)
Our Nursery is where the story begins. It is housed in a 16th century building in which Cardinal Wolsey sketched the plans for his college.
The Nursery follows the Montessori philosophy and approach to learning combined with other more traditional methods of teaching. The underlying philosophy of the Montessori approach is to cultivate each child’s innate curiosity whilst developing concentration, coordination, independence and order.
Our experienced staff aim to instil a love of learning, independence and a sense of having a meaningful place in our community here at CCCS. The Headmaster reads to the Nursery every week.
The pupils have a garden in the shadow of Christ Church’s imposing frontage in which the boys and girls play alongside our rabbits, Percy and Alice, named after The Very Reverend Professor Martyn Percy, Dean of Christ Church, and Dean Liddell’s daughter, Alice.
