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.
Follow my leader
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.

Our themes will be Winter, Hibernation and Chinese New Year. The children will observe what happens to our environment in Winter and, hopefully, we will get some snow so that we can experience it first hand. Our key texts will be Winter themed, The Winter Hedgehog, Snowball, Percy the Park keeper One Snowy Night and a selection of non-fiction books to support our learning. We will be launching a new project to promote reading especially sharing books at home and parents will be invited to `rock up and read' during this term. We would like to initially start by offering families the opportunity of staying a while to read with your child, or a group of children, in the morning at drop off time. A folder containing a reading book will be sent home each week and we would love for you to make a comment in the small record book about whether your child enjoyed the book or not and why. Please look out for further information or ask one of the team. The term will end on the theme of Chinese New Year and during this week we will be cooking Chinese style as well as learning about how this festival is celebrated and enjoyed by many Chinese people living around the world.
