A qualified teacher in every Nursery?

Posted on: 26 Apr 2016 by Weston Green School

As you will be well aware, the Government has been emphasising the desire/need to have a trained teacher in every Nursery. Is this really necessary, given that the children are so young? Absolutely! Teaching children to take their next steps, to know how to encourage and stimulate that desire to explore, to sustain and develop the children’s skills, to know how to prepare thoroughly for the next stage is, like teaching at any age, both art and science and requires great skill; it cannot be done as effectively by less qualified, less aware staff.

As with so many areas of education, the importance of having highly gifted and appropriately trained staff at Nursery age has been recognised by Independent Schools for decades and Weston Green has been providing the highest quality provision for many a–year, as so many can confirm. So, well done to the Government...yet again they are looking to mirror best practice - our practice.
