Here at Active Kids Nursery Hove we pride ourselves on offering a wide range of extra activities. We find children progress best by engaging in activities and expanding their knowledge through physical exploration


The children enjoy Spanish activities and Spanish songs and rhymes.  The children show a great interest in learning another language and are often asking when they can learn Spanish.

Our Spanish sessions are offered at Active Kids Nursery Hangleton throughout the week at different times; we tend to arrange sessions but will incorporate it into the day whenever the children show interest.  Parents have told us on numerous occasions how pleased they are with what their children have learnt through these sessions; the children had been going home talking about colours, numbers and animals.

Drama with Claire from ‘Make Believe’

Claire is always enthusiastic about getting the children involved with telling and acting stories out from the children’s point of view and encouraging them to use their body in different dramatic ways; such as mime or improvisation.

Drama is important for children to learn as it helps them express their inner feelings and develop their language and speaking skills.

Yoga with Eva

Eva joins us here at Active Kids Nursery from Little Sages weekly to practice yoga with the children. We try to fit her in the week through different times so all children can have a chance to enjoy a yoga session. Eva really explores the topic with the children and helps the children to relax and calm them.  The children really enjoy these sessions as they get to experiment with balancing and other physical techniques.

We have heard how they go home showing off their yoga moves to their families and friends.

Multi-Sports with Adam

Adam joins us here at Active Kid’s Nursery Hangleton once a week.  The children really look forward to these sessions as it is their opportunity to experiment with different games and sports.  The children have really bonded with Adam and show good understanding of what is asked when he arrives.  There are a wide range of activities involved which is great as all children, big or small, can explore and get involved.  So far the children have enjoyed football, obstacle courses, basketball, hide-and-seek and various other physical activities.  It has really helped to improve the children’s co-ordination and gross motor skills as well as their listening and communication skills.

Forest School with Renata & Nicola

This is offered at Active Kids Nursery throughout the week to all children as what we pride ourselves on as a setting is being involved with Forest School philosophies.  Renata and Nicola have a lot of experience with working with the outdoors and the children really enjoy learning and exploring the outdoors either within our setting or out and about in nature.  It offers the children the experience to take risks and learn through exploration and to learn through their own processes and findings with support from an adult.  The children enjoy learning about nature and not only the outside environment but also what can be recreated indoors to support this.

Our staff’s priority is to provide a friendly atmosphere for both children and parents.

Play Areas

We ensure that play areas are setup each day to reinforce different areas of the EYFS and promote your child’s development.


All our staff are fully qualified and trained in every aspect of the EYFS.


We draw from a variety of educational teaching styles including The Montessori Approach, The Waldorf Approach and The Reggio Emilia Approach.


When planning our ratios we always ensure that experienced staff members accompany junior ones.


If Children under the age of 6 years are gently encouraged to learn through interesting games, they pick up skills that will help them maintain an edge through their lives.
