Our nursery is a unique setting as it is led and run by teachers. Our nursery is always a vibrant and exciting place in which children can learn. This gives the children a fantastic start and introduction to school life. Our nursery is open from 9am till 3pm. The children are part of the school; they use the hall and the outside areas around the school in their learning.
Outdoor play and continous provision are instrumental to nursery children’s development. Both aspects of which are used and planned for fully each week. Don’t just take our word for it; this is what current parents have to say:

“I am so happy with how my son is doing at Nursery; he has come on so much particularly with phonics, writing and maths.”
“He absolutely loves Nursery. He is so excited to come every day and asks me if he can go for longer!”
“She looks forward to Nursery every day and cannot wait to come in.”
“She is very settled at Nursery and enjoys talking about her experiences at home.”
“Since starting at Nursery he has come on in leaps and bounds and we couldn’t be more pleased with his progress.”

What a busy term it has been in Nursery. We have been to the jungle in a safari bus and learnt about lots of animals. We had a great Elmer Day when the children dressed up in many different colours and patterns.
We have been busy in Santa's workshop, building and wrapping toys then delivering around the nursery in the sleighs. We have learnt lots of new songs and been busy with the sound of the week. We went to West Lodge Farm and had the most amazing day looking at the twinkly lights with the 3D glasses, taking part in the Nativity in the barn and of course a visit to Santa who was fast asleep and we had to wake him up. All the children were given 'elf money' to spend in the elf shop.
