Accelerate your child’s development with St Anthony’s Plus

Welcome to St Anthony’s Schools Plus, our pre-nursery programme for children from birth to 3 years old. 

St Antony’s Schools Plus is a personalised programme designed to prepare your child for nursery by enhancing their development cognitively, socially and emotionally. We provide an exceptional learning and pastoral experience for parents seeking to support their child’s development and learning at this very early age, ensuring your child has the best possible start to their education. 

At the heart of St Anthony’s Schools Plus is a flexible, hybrid learning programme. You will have exclusive access to face to face sessions delivered at our nursery and online activity plans and materials that you can enjoy with your child at home, alongside parenting guidance and support. 

As part of the programme, you will join a community of like-minded parents and develop relationships with our early years specialists. Our wonderful, highly-skilled team will provide you with the advice and resources you need to support your child’s next steps in their development.  

The Programme includes:

Face to Face Programme

  • Every week during term time, you will be invited to an exclusive 90 minute come and play session run by early years specialists from the nursery. 
  • Parent and child are invited to attend together with opportunities for parents to ask questions and discuss any concerns or challenges with staff. 
  • Parents will be given guidance on their child’s progress and next steps through a termly report and a virtual 1-1 meeting.  

Home Learning Programme 

  • To accompany the face to face programme is a digitally delivered and carefully sequenced series of fun and educational activity plans for parents to complete with their children at home. 
  • You will be able to access bespoke story videos, nursery rhymes and activity demonstrations that you can enjoy with your child.  
  • The home learning programme runs on a termly basis with supplementary holiday resources. 
  • We will provide you with clear suggestions of what your child might be doing and how you can extend their learning using the activities in the home learning pack. 
  • The programme will be delivered via the digital platform Tapestry, where parents can upload photographs and videos for our early years specialists to review.  

Parenting Programme

  • Parents will have access to a parenting programme designed to support them with their understanding of child development and to help them tackle parenting challenges. Articles and sessions with expert speakers will cover topics including aspirations, parenting style, independence, behaviour management, sleep and potty training. 
  • Speaker sessions will be either in person or on zoom and will be recorded for those who can’t attend the session.
