PADBURY NURSERY SCHOOL
The nursery opened in 1992. It is located at number two Hermanos Villalonga Street in Valencia (Spain), in a villa which occupies an area of 1000 square meters and offers:
10 CLASSROOMS WHERE WE LEARN AND HAVE FUN
The baby’s classroom is spacious and bright; with well defined playing and resting areas to respect each child’s sleeping patterns. The play area is rich in stimuli with plenty of motivating resources.
The six classrooms for children aged 1 and 2 years old are spacious and all space is reserved for games, collective learning and dancing. There are few desks in the classroom because once the child has grasped well the concept put ahead, then the teacher will sit with each child individually to make sure the task is correctly done.
The three classrooms of 2nd cycle have distinct areas to work and play. Once children go over the age of 3 they are sufficiently autonomous to perform their work individually, but always under the teacher´s close supervision. In these classrooms there is a lot of material to play with, as learning is much easier for the child, if done in a playful manner.
2 DINING ROOMS WHERE WE EAT AND LEARN HOW TO EAT
The dining rooms are supervised and cared for by their own tutors, strengthening all the time eating habits and good table manners.
The one year old children‘s class eats in a separate dining room. This room provides highchairs for the younger ones.
PSYCHOMOTOR ACTIVITY CLASS.
This classroom has many psychomotor activity resources to perform circuits, as well as audio-visual, drama and body expression resources.
PLAYGROUNDS TO PLAY WITH FRIENDS
Having two outdoor playgrounds and grouping children by age, allows us to go out and play respecting each group’s pace in completing their games according to their age.
Thanks to the indoor playground children can still play on cold and rainy days.
All playgrounds are filled with outdoor games, bikes, balls, slides, games for children and basketball hoops for the older ones.
