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 4

Our topic for this term is Spring with a focus on baby animals. We will be discussing what to expect during Spring time and will take a walk around our school grounds to look for signs of Spring. The Nursery garden will get a good spring clean and everyone will be involved in making it an amazing place to grow and learn. We hope that our grassy area will dry out soon so that we can use it again, but, in the meantime, we are very fortunate to have use of the wonderful, extra large Reception garden which has an all weather surface, perfect! Throughout the term, we are hoping to have some special baby animals visiting us which will enrich our learning and make it truly memorable. Learning about Easter will be the focus for the last two weeks and there will be lots of fun and exciting activities planned.
