22 Years


Extra-Curricular Activities
We ensure the children have the opportunity to take part in a variety of experiences and offer an additional range of activities including Ballet and French classes for children who are 2.5 years and older. These sessions are delivered by external teachers on a term time basis. These sessions are optional, and if you wish to enrol your child please contact the Nursery School Office for an enrollment form.

Music Sessions
We hold weekly music sessions with external music teachers “Music House” for all the children to explore various musical instruments and enjoy physical movement and sensory exploration. Music sessions create a rich sensory environment where children can listen, sing, touch, and move to the rhythm. These sessions are free of charge and are part of your child’s weekly curricular.

Outdoor Activities
We strive to educate the children about leading a healthy lifestyle and encourage them to be as physically active as possible. Hopes and Dreams have a beautiful outdoor Garden where all the children can enjoy a great variety of creative and imaginative activities, such as planting, climbing and balancing, nature trails, and using construction equipment. Our mud kitchen is one of the children’s favourite areas to play in while in the garden.

Sports Sessions
The sports sessions offer many opportunities to learn and practice different types of sports. The children from 22 months and older are taught by a qualified sports teacher. Weather permitting, the Sports Sessions take place in our garden. These sessions are free of charge and are part of your child’s weekly curricular.

We also organise regular walks to nearby local parks with our pre-school children. We plan exciting excursions within the local community which including trips to the library and the puppet theatre.
