At Berkhamsted Day Nursery we provide a range of extra activities for the children to enjoy, which are led by professionals in their field.

These activities are included in our fee package and are in addition to the many activities that your child will enjoy during the day with our staff.

Monday: Beats and Bops

Emma is a skilled musician who introduces music to the children in a fun and interactive way. Through singing and actions they learn about different styles of music, instruments, tone and tempo and as well as having a basic introduction to musical symbols.

Tuesday: Spanish

Mrs Barrios-Salamo is an experienced Spanish teacher who loves the Early Years. As well as working with children at Berkhamsted Pre-Prep, she sings and reads to the nursery children in Spanish. Her interactive, colourful activities mesmerise the children and the session is always over too soon.

Wednesday: Dinky Dancers

Mrs Bennett is highly experienced in teaching dance and creative music. Dinky Dancers provides a fabulous dance, movement, action, music and singing experience, developing every child physically, musically and socially.

Thursday: Gym Tots

Mr Proudfoot, our sports coach, demonstrates many fun climbing, crawling and balancing activities that the children can practise with their key worker. Exploring the space and making shapes with their bodies is an exciting way for children to find out all about themselves and how they can move.

Friday: Beats and Bops

Emma is a skilled musician who introduces music to the children in a fun and interactive way. Through singing and actions they learn about different styles of music, instruments, tone and tempo and as well as having a basic introduction to musical symbols.

The staff show genuine concern and care for the children and the entire organisation seems very well run and organised. We like the variety of learning activities that are included in the curriculum that encourage development from both sides of brain.
