Fairfield Nursery has established and developed its home learning guided by our children and families. Our approach is to work closely with parents, support learning and enquiries that children naturally do in the home environment and provide resources that provide further enhancements to support the children's fascinations and the next step in their learning journey. At Fairfield we:

  • Make weekly email and phone contact with all parents
  • Send activities and ideas via email to parents
  • Visit parents and children at home every other week with a selection of library books
  • Provide packs of learning that builds on projects, fascinations and lines of enquiries such as portraits
  • Share activities on Facebook
  • Publish activities and stories on the schools YouTube channel that families are able to access on their smart televisions
  • Parents provide regular feedback and share images of the learning in their home
