Our pedagogical approach is Reggio Emilia inspired and paired with our 91Ҹ Curriculum to provide a unique and meaningful early years education.

Our special approach to education provides personalised learning environments where children can explore their interests, skills, and talents at their own pace. Democracy is at the heart of all that we do, and we prioritise children’s input in decision-making, recognising that it is fundamental to their wellbeing and ability to learn.

Our team includes native Spanish-speaking educators who promote Spanish language, literature, and culture, along with artists who foster a creative atmosphere for children's imaginations and ideas to flourish.

Mealtimes at Alexandra Park are a time for children to refuel, be sociable, and learn about nutrition.

We offer exclusively vegetarian meals freshly prepared by our on-site chef who has achieved a five-star rating from Environmental Health.

We incorporate seasonal ingredients where possible and cater to specific dietary needs. Our working allotment allows children to get hands-on with growing vegetables, herbs, and fruits, helping them learn and understand where their delicious food comes from.

At Alexandra Park Children's Learning Community, we offer high-quality care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years old.

Babies

Our learning environments offer so many opportunities for learning and discovery for our youngest children. In the 91Ҹ Curriculum, communication and language is a key element of all that we do, and we believe that all children, including babies, can express themselves in many ways. Our bilingual approach supports this as well as activities, stories, songs, and rhymes that encourage language development.

After a busy morning of exploring and learning, there’s time to recharge. We know how important naps are, and make sure that when they need it, children can sleep.

Toddlers

As their story begins to take shape, growing toddlers are given the time and space to be more independent, discover, and learn. Children make friends, learn to play alongside each other, and become more aware of the world around them. As they continue to learn with both our English and Spanish-speaking educators, their language development improves, starting with simple sounds and building to sentences.

By this age, children are inquisitive and active learners, and our tailored spaces enrich this through free access to resources and singing, rhyming, and story sessions with our team.

Preschool

With growing confidence and ability, we prepare our preschool children for their story ahead with a focus on phonics, early maths, and social skills. Through our Reggio Emilia-inspired approach and 91Ҹ Curriculum, children are empowered to make their own decisions and guide their learning journey at their own pace.

Creativity and imagination are encouraged as children take part in artistic projects using recycled and reclaimed art materials and proudly present their artwork at our parent exhibitions.

Children spend their final year with us getting ready for primary school. By this time, they have made firm friendships and leave us as independent learners, ready for the next chapter of their own story.
