Life in Nursery


The Nest is Falcons Prep’s 3+ CO-ED Nursery opening its doors in September 2022! Our Nursery aims to build on the already huge success of our current Reception and Early Years provision which opened in September 2021.


Nursery at Falcons Prep Richmond forms the beginning of their school journey. Here we aim to create a calm and exciting learning environment where children feel welcomed to the Falcons family and are encouraged to harness their natural curiosity, make use of their fantastic creativity as we support them in becoming enthusiastic, life-long learners.


We place each individual child at the centre of everything that we do to enable them to develop to their potential and become a kind and caring member of our community. Falcons Prep was recently inspected by ISI and rated as “Excellent”. Our Early Years was recognised as enabling our children to make “rapid progress supported by an exciting programme of outdoor learning”.


Our number one priority is the well-being and happiness of our pupils. We foster a calm and gentle atmosphere, marked by a mutual respect between adults and children. Teachers and Early Years Practitioners encourage children to praise, listen and take turns. This develops the children’s kindness, honesty and empathy as well as giving them a sense of security and belonging.

We recognise that children who feel confident in themselves, and in their own ability, have a head start to learning. All the children are treasured as individuals and are encouraged to explore their gifts and strengths in order to achieve their full potential. Each day, we nurture the children’s natural curiosity, creativity and critical thinking through fun, play-based tasks. This helps them become independent and resilient learners, ready to question, reflect and adapt.
