Welcome to Nursery


In Nursery children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. This is made up of lots of different areas of learning. Prime Areas - Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Children also learn to develop their Literacy, Maths, Creative skills and Understanding of the world through hands on practical activities with play at the heart of all we do. Your child's class teacher and support staff track your child closely throughout the year and measure their progress against age related levels.

This year we are enrolled on to the Curiosity Approach Accreditation. This is a nationally recognised accreditation. As Early years practitioners we have a passion for providing children with the best possible start. Through the Curiosity Approach we will be working hard to create an environment that promotes awe, wonder and curiosity through the use of authentic and natural resources. It is a wonderful mix of Reggio, Montessori, Steiner and Hygee methodology that will help promote and widen experiences for our children.
