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

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” Helen Keller

This term our topic is ‘Autumn’ we will be exploring what this means and noticing what changes are happening around us in nature. We will focus on stories such as The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle and think about what is happening to our seeds. We will be going on nature walks in the woodland to see what signs of Autumn we can spot. If you and your family go out on any walks please feel free to bring in any findings from your adventures.

As many of us are coming together for the first time in nursery after a long while we will be focusing on how to play together, and share with others. We will find out how we can best collaborate whilst developing relationships with our new classmates and teachers. We will be focusing on stories such as Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister, and thinking about why did he decide to listen to the octopus, and why did sharing help him make friends. As we are Rainbow Fish class we will come up with some ideas of what we can do to be just like rainbow fish!
