P4C (Philosophy for Children)


Update January 2023 - We are delighted that Oaklands has been awarded the SAPERE P4C Silver School Award! Our nursery was recognised for our sustained commitment and progress across the whole school.  The Award Assessor commented that our application for the award was an ‘inspiring example of P4C in the Early Years’. 

Oaklands Nursery, as associate members of the Societas Trust, is currently involved in a project called Philosophy for Children, otherwise known as P4C.


The project has been adopted by the Societas Trust, as evidenced based research has proven P4C can significantly and positively impact on children’s language and reasoning skills, as well as their personal, social and emotional development.


All staff have been trained to help Oaklands develop a Community of Enquiry within the setting. Key Workers facilitate weekly sessions during group carpet time.
