Our Nursery reflects the nurturing and supportive learning environment of our current Early Years provision where your child will grow and thrive.
Our Busy Blog
The nursery team consists of Mrs Hollingsworth (Nursery Teacher), Mrs Bray (Nursery Teacher), Mrs Abraham (Early Years Practitioner), Mrs Colby (Early Years Teaching Assistant) and Miss Essen (Early Years Practitioner Apprentice). All members of the team work hard to offer a nurturing and supportive learning environment for the children to thrive and grow. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum with an emphasis on promoting the characteristics of effective learning. This approach fosters a love of learning and provides challenge linked closely to developmentally age appropriate experience. We strive to create an environment where the children feel confident to explore and discover new things. As a Nursery, we understand that all children are unique and understand the importance of following their individual interests.

Chinese New Year!
The last two weeks we have been looking at Chinese New Year. The children have discovered that red is a lucky colour, it’s the year of the pig, Ni hae means hello in Chinese and egg rolls are delicious! Also we looked at the Chinese Zodiac story and one of the nursery parents came in to read one of their favourite stories in Mandarin. In maths we were able to work together as a team to create lanterns. We looked carefully at the shapes we could see and then we described them. Finally we were introduced to the story ‘The Magic Paintbrush’. In the outdoor area we have been retelling the story with the characters and creating our very own dragons in the construction area.
