We have our own designated site for our Nursery children, providing an exciting area for them to settle and develop during their early stages of life. The classrooms are equipped with a range activities that provides a multi-sensory environment to give them best start in life.
Early Years Curriculum
The children develop through playing and exploring active learning and creating and thinking critically. There are 7 areas of learning which are divided into the:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development,
- Communication and Language and
- Physical Development and
- Understanding the World and
- Expressive Arts and Design.
The prime areas are fundamental throughout the EYFS and the specific areas include the skills and knowledge which provide important contexts for learning and they develop more fully towards the end of the early years. The children carry out lots of practical experiences through which they are encouraged to explore and experiment.
The children use both the indoor and outdoor classroom during teacher-directed and child-initiated times. We have a particular love for outdoor learning and come rain or shine, we explore and play outside in our outdoor environment.

Whilst using the EYFS statutory framework, we also use ‘Development Matters’ to guide our learning. Our EYFS Curriculum goals are what we would like the children to aspire to become and achieve by the end of their time with us. We provide a thorough and vast range of experiences where we actively encourage child-initiated, purposeful learning to help inspire this.
Starting nursery is a big step for most children. That’s why we think settling-in is really important. The time you spend helping your child to settle in will really benefit them in the long run – it will mean your child will be happier, more confident, and learn better and enjoy nursery more.
We start children slowly, so they can get lots of support and attention. We do not want them to have a bad first experience of school. Different children will settle in at different rates.
The absolute minimum amount of time you need to stay and help to settle your child will be 3 sessions. Most children need more than this – some a lot more.
During the home visit and the nursery meeting, we will ask you some questions about your child and their health and development. This information will help us to settle your child in, and help us to make sure we meet your child’s needs in nursery.
