Why are nursery display boards important?

Nursery display boards have lots of significant benefits.


  • They make the environment more welcoming and inviting to young children who may otherwise be anxious about being away from parents or carers.
  • They can be used to display learning materials such as vocabulary cards, number lines or other learning aids.
  • They can be used to showcase children’s work which is great for helping build confidence and making children feel valued.
  • They can provide a visual reminder of key information for staff, parents and children such as which child is assigned to each key worker, important dates to remember or other such information.
