|Malling Windmill Nursery is a voluntary provider of pre-school care operating within the secure school environment. The Nursery is managed by a charitable Trust, all Trustees being staff or Governors at South Malling School.
The Nursery is registered with OFSTED to take up to 18 children, aged between two and a half years and five years, per session.
The nursery operates in close partnership with South Malling C.E. Primary School and we consider in all our ventures, not only your child's present needs but also their future development.
||We offer a wide and diverse range of opportunities for children to learn through play. All children are able to participate in activities, which are both stimulating and challenging. We acknowledge that every child is an individual, and we offer a range of provision, which ensures that children develop at a pace relevant to their need.|
Following the curriculum guidance for the Foundation Stage we support all children as they take the first steps towards the Early Learning Goals.
A team of dedicated and experienced pre-school practitioners staffs the Nursery. We operate a Key worker system, whereby an individual member of staff takes responsibility for assessing each child's ongoing care and developmental needs. All key workers liaise with parents on a regular basis and take every opportunity to forge good home and nursery links.
||Opening Times and fees|

|'Settling in' period and emotional development
We can help your child to develop emotionally by learning to cope with being separated from you for gradually increasing periods of time.
We try to be totally flexible when settling your child into the Nursery and we are very happy for you to stay with your child on several visits, if necessary. We are also willing for your child to stay for short sessions at first, and then to gradually build up their hours, as appropriate.
We look forward to meeting you and your child. Should you have any further queries please do not hesitate to drop in to see us or telephone?we will be pleased to help.

ALPS at South Malling
ALPS stands for Accelerated Learning in Primary Schools. At South Malling we have been developing an ALPS approach to learning since September 2004.
We learn by using all of our senses, by seeing, hearing and doing things.
We usually have a preferred learning style. Some of us are visual learners, some auditory learners and some kinaesthetic learners. We call this VAK. We need make the most of all these senses to ensure that the brain?s potential is maximised and we remember more of what has been learnt.
Children learn best when they are enjoying what they are doing and it has real meaning to them. We aim to maximise each individual child?s potential with the help and support of parents.
Features of ALPS we have been developing:-
-At the start of the lesson children are clearly told what they are going to learn and how they are going to learn it. This is called giving The Big Picture.
-All children and staff have free access to water.
-We do brain gym exercises throughout the day to help concentration.
-We have found out each child?s preferred learning style and teachers incorporate this into their planning.
-We play music in the classrooms and around school to enhance learning.
-We use mind-mapping to find out what children know already and to help children remember what they have learnt.
-We review learning at the end of each session and the end of the day.
-We are developing an ALPS rich environment.
