A warm and happy environment where children learn and grow

In our Nursery, we believe passionately in providing high quality education and care in a safe, secure and healthy environment. Our children thrive through stimulating, challenging and creative play opportunities that build their self-esteem and foster independence. We value a child centred approach that promotes positive attitudes to learning and believe that every child deserves the very best start in life.

Settling in

Above all, we want children to feel safe and happy at nursery. We also want parents to feel welcome and involved from the beginning. We believe that children cannot play or learn successfully if they are anxious, so we always do our best to ensure the settling in period goes smoothly. Our settling in procedures have been devised to help parents and children feel calm, comfortable and reassured.

Our aim is to work in partnership with parents to do whatever is best for their child. Children usually settle in very quickly here, however, if a child does have trouble settling, we always work with parents to find a solution. We understand that every child is unique and will strive to support each one in the very best way we can. Our aim is to make families feel welcomed and supported throughout the settling in period.

Term 1

We have been making new friends, getting to know the adults, finding out where everything is and having lots of fun. The traditional tales we have been reading and role playing are :- Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Enormous Turnip and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have enjoyed learning and singing new songs and rhymes as well as building our stamina when daily running and challenging ourselves on the Diggle trail. Finding out about Autumn and Harvest has enriched our learning especially as we went on a walk in the school grounds to spot signs of Autumn. We have also explored fruit and vegetables and made our very own vegetable soup to eat at snack time. Playing number games, comparing sizes and counting has helped us to develop our mathematical understanding.
