The nursery is split into 3 rooms all of whom enjoy daily access to our large enclosed garden area.

Our pre-school room is a room where children are supported to flourish and develop. They are encouraged to try a wide variety of activities and staff support children to become confident in choosing their own play and independent in their self-care.

We provide lots of time for children to practice getting themselves ready to play outside and we support children in managing their own hygiene practices. Activities are fun and engaging and planned with children’s needs and interests at the centre.

For us school readiness means ensuring that children are independent, confident, sociable and curious leaners with the willingness to try new things. We work with local primary schools to support children in their transition to school.
