At Alegra the Lower Nursery class is an enviroment of care whilst having the structure and learning program that follows the English National Curriculum.
At the Lower Nursery classroom, the 2 year old toddler becomes a student, developing fundamental and basic habits and routines for learning that allows them to better prepare and transition to their academic journey, giving them a headstart in their first years in school.
