Settling in

It is of paramount importance to this nursery that all children in the nursery should be treated with great care and consideration. A new child should feel comfortable, cared for and integrated into the life of the nursery as quickly as possible.

During the first few sessions the parents or carers have the option of:

• staying with their child if they wish
• staying with their child for part of the session
• leaving their child for the whole of the session

We can give advice on this if asked by a parent or carer but it is our preference that parents/carers should do what in their experience is best for the child.

A child's first day

All parents are asked provide at least one spare set of clothes for their child, which can be left in their child's tray or a change bag.

If a child has a particular blanket, teddy or comforter, parents may find it useful to bring this along.

Parents of children starting at the nursery are asked to provide their child's key worker with a written guide of their child's normal day.

The grouping of children and their key person

Each child admitted to the nursery is assigned a 'key person'. This member of staff is responsible for completing assessments and observations on the child. The nursery seeks primarily through the key person system to promote a relationship of complete trust between child and key person.

Our curriculum and activities we provide

The nursery believes that children learn through first-hand experiences, using their five senses to develop an understanding of the world. The desire to learn is natural and it is through playing with real objects and materials that they begin to make sense of their world. With play as our basis we are able to devise our curriculum plans.

The children's day is carefully structured and planned, but allows plenty of time for free expression and free play. The atmosphere is relaxed, happy, and fun and very importantly is free from pressure or stress. We provide a wide range of learning and discovery opportunities to help the children in our care reach their full potential, whatever their age.

The nursery has an area where parents can view the curriculum plans. These include daily and weekly plans of the activities.


The toddler area aims to provide the children with the opportunity to learn about themselves and others, discover and explore the world in which they live.

Activities for children in the toddler area are organised within the early years foundation stage. This is divided into children's relationships with the key people in their lives and the experiences which facilitate their learning.

The curriculum in this area is centred on six areas of learning (see provision of the foundation stages). This gives the opportunity for an early introduction to reading, writing and numbers, mathematical concepts, science and technology, story-telling, dance and drama, arts and crafts, music and cookery.

The Foundation Stage

The foundation stage forms the initial stage of the national curriculum. The planned activities provided each day are designed for children's enjoyment and to support their learning in each of the six areas of The Foundation Stage. These are personal, social and emotional development, communication, language and literacy, problem solving, reasoning and numeracy, knowledge and understanding of the world, physical development and creative development. Each of the six areas include a number of development matters, early learning goals and planned activities which support children's development in each of these areas as they are able to achieve each goal as their learning progresses.
Opening Hours

The nursery is open term-time only. Daily opening times are from 8:30am to 2:30pm Monday to Friday.
