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.

World Book Day - Thursday March 5th
Easter holiday - Monday 6th April until Friday 17th April
For more events, please see Miss Crompton's weekly bulletin.
This term our themes for learning will be Spring, Baby Animals and Easter. The children will get busy in the garden where we will have a big Spring clean and begin to start sorting out resources to be stored in our brand new shed! Taking responsibility and carrying out small tasks will be a focus and we will be encouraging the children to help each other and the adults in Nursery by co-operating and collaborating in many day to day activities. Our key texts will be Percy the Park Keeper stories, Bramley Hedge Spring Story, Farmer Duck, Rosie's Walk and lots of non-fiction texts to support our learning. We will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 5th March and the theme is `Hat's off to Reading' we hope that many of you will get involved in this lovely annual event. The book we will be reading is `Silly Billy' by Anthony Browne and the children will be involved in art and craft activities based on the story. The home reading project has been a great success and will continue throughout the year, thanks for supporting your children in this it really has had an impact as we are finding the children far more interested in talking about what they have read at home and whether or not they liked their book. Book talk is always good so we will continue to encourage it.
