What difference do Nurture groups make?
Nurture groups are recognised by the Government and Ofsted as providing an important opportunity for children to develop;
Freemantle has had a Nurture group since 2009 and we have found it to be very beneficial for the children. Supporting a child's social and emotional needs builds the necessary foundations to enable them to achieve academically.
Parents have commented that they have seen positive changes in their children's self esteem, communication and listening skills, confidence, sharing and taking turns.
