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

Hello, Stories and Autumn are our themes for this term. We have welcomed each other back, got to know the new children and their families and made new friends, it couldn't be better! All the Nursery team are very impressed at how the new children have settled in, hardly any fuss and lots of courage which happens to be our school value this term. We have observed many children demonstrating courage as they have separated from their families and joined in with the new experience of being at Nursery, wonderful to see! I am sure that the children have already told you about the new trim trail in our outdoor environment, it's been very exciting to explore and build confidence as we support all our children to take risks and be brave. We will be reading and role playing lots of traditional stories such as The Enormous Turnip, Rosie's Walk, The Little Red Hen and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The children will start to think about the changing season and go on a walk to spot signs of Autumn.
