Provide lofts that offer quiet space to rest and sleep, a friendly place to play, a learning space to share stories for 2, 3 and 4 year olds

by The Friends of Robert Owen in Greenwich

Robert Owen Nursery School is celebrating its 65th anniversary of serving the East Greenwich Community. We have seen generations of local families come through the doors and supported them to learn and grow!

We are really excited to be refurbishing our nursery classes this summer, to accommodate mixed ages of 2, 3 and 4 year olds.  This is a capital funded project from the DfE to provide additional places for children eligible for up to 30 hours funded places. We need to create some new flexible spaces to meet the needs of all the children.  Classroom lofts offer extra space, with a small floor footprint, they allow children to go up so they can see their world from a different perspective, and down to explore the world they have seen up there.  They can imagine and create all sorts of role play scenarios. Lofts offer a quiet space to read, rest and sleep, a  friendly space to talk and a learning space to share stories.

We need some help to make these lofts a reality at Robert Owen. We can only afford to buy one and we are ambitious in our aim to have at least four across the nursery school.

We are asking current families, ex Robert Owen families,  friends, staff, the business community and other stakeholders to help us raise up to £12,000 to realise this project. 

 We want the children to have the highest quality learning environment and experiences possible.  Robert Owen is an outstanding nursery school with highly qualified and motivated staff who offer consistency and continuity for many families in the local community. Fully inclusive, it strives to cater for all children and family need, which is changing over time due to new housing and more children new to the area.

Educational outcomes for the children are very good at Robert Owen where we celebrate early childhood through rich play-based learning.  Children thrive in our environment, they build up strong muscles, good social relationships and develop independence and a strong motivation to learn.

The loft spaces will be an exciting and creative way to support all round child development.
