Nursery Information for Parents and Carers


Nursery Information for Parents and Carers

Our aims are:

•To work together with parents and carers in the education of their children.

•To build on what children already know and can do.

•To provide a happy and secure environment in which children can develop intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.

•To provide an exciting and challenging curriculum which encourages and motivates our children.

•To access and cater for the needs of every child.

•To encourage children to become self-confident, independent and responsible.

•To communicate effectively between parents, children, staff and our Community Council.


We believe that children learn best through well planned play and practical, fun, engaging activities. Nursery and Reception age children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum working towards the Early Learning Goals, which show their achievements and abilities. This curriculum is divided into 7 areas of learning with a big emphasis of learning through play, both inside and outside. The activities that we offer to achieve this include role play and dressing up, sand and water play, tactile and messy play, painting, box modelling, construction, exploring nature, threading and cutting skills, climbing, sliding and riding, to name a few!

Our Nursery is a very busy place, with lots of things going on and lots of activities for the children to take part in, both inside and outdoors!
Our Nursery Leader is Mrs Pughsley. We have wonderful Teaching Assistants based in there as well. There is never a dull moment! Have a look at our learning gallery to see what kinds of things we do!
