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.

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.

Depending on when school re-opens. Please read Weekly Bulletin.
Our topic is `In the Garden' which will cover growing and mini-beasts. The children have already been involved in growing tadpoles and they have loved studying their progress from frogspawn. Since Florence Houlders kindly brought the frogspawn in for us, she is now looking after the tadpoles during this time of quarantine. I've heard that they are doing really well so we must be proud that they were well looked after by you all and had a good start. Hopefully, we will be able to see them soon. One of our key texts is Jack and the Beanstalk and I know that there are lots of different versions of this story so, if you have a particular favourite, please bring it in for us to share and compare with other versions. We will have fun making props and role-playing the story as well as thinking about whether Jack was brave to climb to the giant's castle or wrong to steal from him? At this time of year the children have full access to all our beautiful gardens and outside areas which is the perfect opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. As much as possible, we follow the children's interests and support their learning through play, child led activities will be supported by the team and we always welcome any parental involvement too so if you would like to spend some time with us here at Nursery, please let us know.
