Helping Your Child Reach Their Potential
With over 26 years' experience, we strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment that enables children to reach their full potential.
We equip them with the confidence, skills, and creativity to become influential citizens and make a positive impact on society. We also promote values such as self-confidence, respect, compassion, curiosity, and enthusiasm for lifelong learning.
We moved our son from mainstream education to Educare in Year 2 just before the pandemic. All the stress that we had experienced with his former primary school dissipated. We liked Educares approach to the curriculum.Children get to really immerse themselves into a subject area. Communication with the school is easy and there is a wonderful community of teachers, children, parents and carers.
As a Small School Everyone Feels Safe and Included
Educare is a primary school that focuses on providing a nurturing environment for children
between the ages of 3 – 11 years old. The mix of children of different ages promotes caring
and an environment of learning from one another.
The term small in our school name holds significant importance as it offers unique advantages to our students.
Our child-centred learning approach is delivered through small class sizes, promoting safety and balance in our students’ learning journey. It enables individualised attention for each student, promoting an appreciation of their differences and a non-judgmental attitude.
Our diverse community consists of different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds and fosters a sense of community and respect.
At Educare Small School, we believe in providing a balanced and engaging learning experience for our students.
We involve parents in school activities to create a strong supportive community, nurture relationships, foster an early understanding of moral issues and social responsibilities, engage with the local community, and enjoy joint activities in groups of various sizes.
Events such as Ham Fair, Canbury Community Garden, Kingston Library visits, and the annual Christmas Fair are regularly attended.
At Educare Small School, we provide a balanced curriculum to develop creative and academic skills through Creative Arts, Music, Forest School, Field trips and events.
Our aim is to inspire our children to be creative and excited about their learning journey.
We help children develop holistically with activities to support their physical, emotional and intellectual growth. Our curriculum covers the National Curriculum with English, maths, sciences, humanities, creative arts and IT.
Our difference is our flexible, creative approach and personalised ethos.
Child-centred education is at the heart of everything we do. We move on gradually, according to each child's readiness.
We recognise each child develops uniquely and learns best through meaningful activities that require talking, listening, thinking, exploring, experimenting and observing.
Educare is a pioneering school that has adapted the principles of the Alexander Technique and simplified it into The Ready List (TRL). It is seamlessly integrated into the school day for all pupils and teachers.
We are committed to a child-centred approach that understands the need for movement during the day, the importance of a dynamic classroom, and the relationship between the ability to learn, well-being, and feeling safe.
We use practices such as The Ready List and Movement Circle to bring together movement, learning and wellbeing. These exercises are based on the principles of Alexander Technique, Tai Chi and Energy balancing.
After lunch, we lay down for Quiet Time with music or simple meditation, helping to focus and re-energise for the afternoon. We also promote a healthy food and water policy to support your child's learning and growth.
Our Building and Groups
Our school building is well equipped for up to 48 children, with two main rooms and groups - Starfish in the classroom (7 - 11 year olds) and Kindergarten, Butterflies and Dolphins in the hall (3 - 6 year olds).
Connecting these is a library and an ICT area.
Forest School is a weekly half-day session out in the woods, in all weathers and in all seasons, with a child-led learning process that encourages play, exploration and supported risk taking.
It helps participants become healthy, resilient, creative and independent learners, as well as developing key skills for life - socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically and intellectually.
