Our Nursery & Pre-School Services

We are passionate about our partnerships with parents and believe they are a crucial part in the development of their child and a valued contribution to their child's learning journey. Our setting promotes healthy lifestyles even with our youngest children through discussing food groups and the importance of exercise. In recognition of this, we have achieved and maintained our 'Healthy Early Years Award'.

Nursery Services

Our baby and toddler rooms are specifically tailored to support your loved ones development in a secure and safe environment. Each room has multiple activities including messy play, sand & water additional sensory equipment to stipulate your children's senses.

Children’s achievements and progress are recorded on curriculum maps and observations stored in your child’s book which we encourage parents to view when they wish. Through ongoing observations we develop an understanding of your child’s likes and dislikes and any interests or enthusiasm’s they may have and these are included in your child’s individual planning to ensure that the approaches we take to support your child’s development are the most effective.

Pre-School Services

Our pre-school room caters for children aged 3-5 years. All our activities are planned to the Early Years Foundation Stage. We aim to encourage social skills and cooperation through play and learning with a strong emphasis on role-play.

Our pre-school rooms focus on motivating and encouraging the children to learn and build on their existing knowledge and skills. Independence and using appropriate behaviour is high on the agenda with many varied activities provided to promote turn-taking, sharing and forming relationships with other children by developing co-operative play and other social skills.

There are opportunities to explore I.T. on the interacting white board and interactive tablet.

Nursery Facilities

Our outside play areas provide opportunities for all our children to experience learning inside and outside. We believe that fresh air and natural light helps children in their learning.

We love to explore, investigate and discover new and exciting facts about the world. We have lots of fun looking for insects and going on bug hunts. We also enjoy playing in our learning areas where we learn all about numbers, letters, shapes, days of the weeks and many more through play.

Our outside area allows learning to continue through play and our activities are planned around the Early years foundation stage. We aim to encourage social skills and cooperation through play.
