What your child will learn

Teaching and learning at The Old Station Nursery Group centers around the individual child; what they love and what motivates them to learn.

The expert delivery of rich, engaging, meaningful activities, purposeful play, and focused high-quality teachable moments, provides real opportunities for children’s natural curiosity to be enhanced, for individual learning to be challenged and extended, and secures solid foundations for life-long learning.
