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 6

Our topics for this term are Mini-beasts and The Sea and the Sky. We will be going on bug hunts around our beautiful school grounds so that we can collect, study and compare the insects we discover. We will discuss the importance of having insects in the environment and the need to look after all living things. The butterflies we have nurtured since tiny caterpillars will be released and all bugs returned to their homes. Our mini-beast topic will be enriched by texts such as What the Ladybird Heard, The Ugly Bug, The Snail and the Whale and The Very Quiet Cricket. Summer is an exciting season that we will make the most of by lots of outside play. We will think about the sea and all that lives there and then focus on way up high in the sky!
