Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery)

At John Rankin, children are at the heart of everything we do.

In order to develop as independent, life-long learners, we passionately believe that children deserve to experience high-quality learning experiences every day.


Starting nursery is a fundamental time for children as they embark on their learning journey. For many children starting nursery is their first experience of a world beyond the secure familiarity of home life. We promote a caring and home from home environment where children feel secure, supported and encouraged to flourish.
