'Combining up to date practice
with solid values'

In 2011 Ofsted graded the Nursery :-

'Good in all areas and outstanding
at working with parents'



Staff

We have a warm and friendly staff team with a wide variety of ages, experiences and personalities. This broad variety is highly valued as each member of staff has something different to offer. To ensure professionalism, the nursery nurses are all qualified to NVQ Level 3 or 4 in child development, and continue to undertake training throughout their nursery career. Several practitioners have been with us for over 12 years.

Activities

We believe strongly that creativity and knowledge comes from exploration so each day consists of good quality play and learning opportunities. All the children's activities are planned through 'The Early Years Foundation Stage'. Although we plan for our children, we respect the child's interests and wherever possible encourage child initiated or child led activities to enable the children to become happy, confident and enthusiastic learners

Developmental Records

You will have daily contact with our nursery nurses who will be able to inform you of your child's progress on a day-to-day basis. However, we keep formal long term records throughout the time your child is in nursery, which parents and keyworkers contribute to jointly to ensure a holistic approach. Parents also have the opportunity to come in to nursery and discuss their child's development on a one to one basis with their key worker at our parents evening, which are held once a term.
