About us...

Our lively and engaging nursery classroom is suitable for children aged between 3 and 4 years of age. The children in Nursery have the freedom to move between our messy craft area, the spacious outdoors and our main Nursery classroom, giving the children the skills and confidence to make choices and engage in independent learning.

The sessions that we offer provide families with the flexibility to take their funded sessions in a number of ways. Sessions can be taken in the morning, afternoon or across the day between 7.30-6pm. For those children that access their funding across the day, meals are included at an additional cost.

Learning through play continues to be the main focus in our Nursery classroom. Our experienced staff build the children’s individual interests and next steps into the carefully planned activities that are on offer every day, providing the children with enriched learning experiences that ensure progress across the curriculum.


This half term...


The children have been exploring and deepening their understanding of Autumn. They have enjoined listening to our focus texts " Pumpkin Soup" and "Delicious" and linking this into their play. This led onto an interest in the pumpkins, where they tapped them, cut them, mixed them and finally made soup with them.


Over the next few weeks we will be getting ready for our Christmas celebrations. The children have been displaying a keen interest in the technology area so the staff will be enhancing this, with a festive workshop and Post Office, where the children can make, wrap and post their own cards and gifts.
