Welcome to Cranmore Integrated Nursery


Cranmore Integrated Nursery follows the curricular guidance for Pre-School education as set out by ‘The Department of Education for Northern Ireland’. The guidance outlines the range of learning opportunities that Nursery children should have through play. The curriculum is broad and balanced, and builds on the children’s previous learning experiences. The curriculum for Pre-School education is set out under six discrete headings;

  • The Arts

  • Language Development

  • Early Mathematical Experiences

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

  • Physical Development and Movement

  • The World Around Us


“Play that is well planned and pleasurable helps children to think, to increase their understanding and to improve their language competence. It allows children to be creative, to explore and to investigate materials, to experiment and to draw and test their conclusions”


The Rumbold Report, HMSO 1990
