Multilingual Learners

Children who have English as a second or third language are very welcome at our nursery school.

We work alongside parents and carers to create the best learning environment for your child.

Before your child joins our nursery, we’ll make sure you’re happy with the way we communicate with you and your child, starting with pronouncing your child’s name correctly. We really value your child’s first language, and will show you how we can help them to read English alongside it.

Before your child starts, two members of staff will visit you and your child at home to start building a secure, positive relationship. You will be able to tell staff about your child and help us to communicate with them.

We also design settling sessions to suit individual children and can share resources to help you support your child wherever you can.

Above all, we will work with you to ensure your child has a successful start.

Here are some ways we support children who are new to learning English:

Keeping things familiar
Using more than words
Communicating with you
Reinforcing your child’s English
