Our Cygnet children follow a slightly more structured day, whilst still strongly focusing on learning through play. As with the Ducklings and Goslings age groups, the Cygnets follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
The Cygnet children are encouraged to be as independent as possible, in order to help ease the transition into schools. The Cygnet room is set up in a more structured manner, with clearly defined areas for role play, reading and literacy, numeracy and creative play.
Cygnets spend a lot of time learning and playing in the extensive garden, and using the outdoor classroom to enable year round outdoor learning opportunities. The Cygnets also complete nature walks in the grounds of the nursery, as well as regular outings to nearby areas such as Ashridge, Wendover Woods and Berkhamsted town centre.
The Cygnets enjoy fortnightly sensory music and movement classes - Hartbeeps, but also daily music activities run by our qualified music teacher. We also offer French lessons during the term time.
Fledglings Nursery offers a School Pick Up and Drop off service to local school nursery classes. If you choose to send your child to a school nursery, we can collect them in our nursery vehicles, take them back to the nursery for a nutritious hot lunch, then your child will be able to relax and play with their friends for the remainder of the day.
Fledglings prides itself on having excellent links with local schools. When your child's school place is confirmed, teachers from their new school are encouraged to come and visit the children at nursery, and discuss their learning and development with each Key person, easing the transition from nursery to school for the children.
