Welcome Message from Becky Dolamore, Head Teacher
Welcome to Rachel Keeling Nursery School.
Rachel Keeling Nursery School is a state maintained school in Bethnal Green, Tower Hamlets.
We want our Rachel Keeling children to be confident, resilient, empathetic, joyful and communicative learners. We are committed to ensuring every child is engaged in meaningful learning experiences that create a thirst for learning which is lifelong.
Our school is a wonderful community and we encourage you to visit. We hope to welcome you and your family soon.
Becky Dolamore Head Teacher
At Rachel Keeling we are driven by quality and have a highly dedicated multi disciplinary staff team including teachers, early years educators and teaching assistants.
We are passionate about teaching and learning and continuously reflect on our practice through a focus on both research and pedagogy.
At the heart of our work with children is the relationship with families and we endeavour to support and develop wonderful, warm relationships with all our families.
We understand children must be engaged in meaningful, first hand experiences as a powerful means to drive children's learning forward. Children at Rachel Keeling engage in a wide range of learning experiences including: shopping for our provisions, creating their own stories and poems; problem solving how to light a fire in the rain; working out how to climb a tree; or using tools to create a bird den.
"Parents and children are welcomed by name on arrival and appreciate being 'made to feel part of the school family'. This ensures children settle quickly. Children are happy, confident, independent and curious learners. Children use adults to support them in their learning journey but are not reliant on them. The wide range of engaging, exciting resources and activities provide rich, varied and imaginative experiences."
