Home away from home
At Meridian Pinehurst, our nursery school provides a safe, nurturing environment where children from 3 months to 5 years are cared for and engaged in play-based developmental activities. Our classrooms are designed to encourage educational curiosity, while our playgrounds are equipped with play structures that inspire physical development through movement and play.
Our children receive well-balanced, wholesome meals and snacks that are freshly prepared by our in-house kitchen. For information on how we store frozen breastmilk or powdered formula, please contact us to speak to a teacher.
Early Learning and Development Areas
Our internally developed nursery school programme is designed with the Early Learning and Development Areas (ELDAs) in mind. The programme is designed to stimulate physical, social, emotional and cognitive well-being through developmental activities and engaging play areas. These ELDAs focus on aspects such as gross motor development, social awareness, communication, spatial awareness and arts.
The development of curiosity and imagination in early childhood is vitally important to the development of problem-solving skills and critical thinking later on. Therefore, we encourage playing with loose-parts and multi-purpose playthings, rather than single-purpose toys that don’t involve much imagination. Through loose-parts play, children use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours, and more.
