Welcome to Bridgewater's Nursery


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 Gilkes (Nursery Lead), Mrs Tortora , Miss Sherlock,  Mrs Iaciofano and Mrs Smith Manze.

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.

Getting ready for Christmas...


We are all thrilled that Christmas is around the corner. The children have been very excited to find our Elf Jingles getting up to mischief every morning. We have been busy painting Santa’s sleigh outside and we have spotted some ice around the provision. We have been experimenting what happens when you put salt on the ice, as well as what may happen when the ice is left inside. The children have had lots of fun making their headbands ready for the Christmas Sing-Along. We thought it would be a lovely idea to make some soup with some winter vegetables, ready to warm us up! In the blue room the children have loved dressing up, we have had lots of different characters throughout the week, Elsa and Ana, Santa and his elves and an angel popped in to say hello!

We are looking forward to our final week in Nursery before the Christmas break. We cannot wait to have lots more fun next week!
