Vision

At Park Kultury Nursery, we aim to give your child the smartest start. Park Kultury Nursery is committed to developing early language and communication skills, culture, creativity and curiosity in all of our learners.

Communication

We develop early language and communication skills in the English language. We will learn, explore and interact in English at all times.

Curiosity

We learn through play, exploring the world around them, asking questions and knowing ways in which to find the answers, looking beyond themselves and asking questions of others.

Culture

We nurture kindness and compassion through an understanding of where each classmate comes from, what language they speak and what makes them who they are.

Creativity

We encourage children to use their imagination, attempt new challenges and take risks in their learning, express themselves and explore within a safe and nurturing environment.

Nursery School

Children attending Park Kultury Nursery will follow a learning-focused curriculum based on the British Early Years Foundation Stage. This will build a strong foundation for a love of lifelong learning. Through self initiated and teacher led experiences, learners will have the opportunity to explore and understand different languages and cultures. Children will learn through play, song, stories, social interaction and rich real world experiences. Themes and topics will allow them to learn about themselves and the world around them.

Attention to each child’s learning and wellbeing needs will be ensured by a class teacher, two teaching assistants and a matron in each year group.

By the end of the Early Years phase, children will have acquired skills and abilities in each of the seven areas of learning outlined in the British Early Years Curriculum.

Seven Areas of Learning:

  • Communication & Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social & Emotional Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts & Design

Language immersion

Highly qualified and experienced English and native teachers deliver lessons every day during purposefully created sessions. Teachers will participate in child initiated play and engage alongside them providing commentary and conversation in English in order develop learning. The school environment supports all languages with visual labels and signs used consistently throughout the Nursery. Traditional books, games, art and music are used on regular basis to instill the cultural recognition in addition to the language.

The children who do not speak English when starting will be unaware of learning a second language, as this will be acquired unconsciously through their learning experiences.

Our teachers are aware of the importance of using descriptive and specific language and how language impacts a child’s thinking, whether in Russian, English or Chinese. Language is reinforced by simple signs, such as makaton. Language becomes the means to play, to communicate, to make friends and have fun.

Benefits of multilingualism

While it is certainly possible to learn a language later in life, many studies have shown that there is a significant advantage for those who have had the opportunity to learn a second language from childhood. Research on cognition demonstrates that the human brain is more open to linguistic development in the years before adolescence. In this way, children who learn a language early are more likely to achieve native-like pronunciation.

Moreover, early language learning has proven to encourage cognitive and academic benefits beyond facility with languages. These advantages include increased mental flexibility, improved divergent thinking, and, some studies show, higher scores on measures of verbal ability in the native language.

Beyond the benefits of the language skills acquired, learning another language allows tremendous insight into other cultures. Today’s world language instruction goes well beyond rehearsing verb tenses. It teaches children about the art, literature, music, history and life in other countries. In learning about other countries and regions, children come to understand that different languages and cultures use different strategies of communication and they learn to understand subjects from multiple perspectives. They also develop a set of skills that enables them to adapt (code switch) between different cultural communication strategies, a skill that is useful in our diverse societies. Learning a second language therefore can benefit children even if they do not attain high levels of proficiency.

Meals and wellbeing

Children will benefit from the excellent food and dining on-site facilities as well as a first class medical room which is permanently staffed by qualified Nurses.
Healthy snacks, water and a nutritious, freshly prepared lunch and tea are served every day. A varied, well balanced and delicious menu is created by experienced chefs for each week.

Extra curricular clubs snd activities

Although English will be the main language of Park Kultury Nursery, children will also have an opportunity to immerse into Russian and Mandarin Chinese language through formal adult-led learning, purposeful play, and creative extra curricular clubs.
Park Kultury Nursery offers extensive after school activities to its little residents. We offer a variety of clubs to our pupils as well as to children from the local community, including weekend clubs. It offers a unique learning experience and preparation for onward education in Russia, in the international school system or abroad.

Why do you teach the British National Curriculum?

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a specifically designed curriculum, updated by the Department of Education of England in February 2012. It covers the first level in children’s education from birth to five years old (in the UK, children start school at the age of 5 years). The English language is both learnt and applied.
The EYFS takes a holistic approach towards the upbringing and education of children as well as their relationships with people and the world around them (personal, social and emotional well-being). It builds their independence as a learner and as a person, self-esteem and self-confidence. It develops skills and behaviours that enable independent thought, self directed learning, working as part of a team and self care. These are all important elements in modern education and prepare a child to successfully contribute towards society as an adult.

What is the difference between your clubs schedule and your Nursery schedule?

We have a large, purpose built activity hall in which clubs will take place alongside learning during the day for the local community and after school for our extra curricular attendees and the local community.
