best-out-of-your-child

It is our mission “to provide a happy, homely and stimulating environment in which children can thrive emotionally and educationally through planned and spontaneous activities”.

Our primary aim is to nurture happy and confident children who are interested in all they see, hear and do, whilst giving them the best possible start in life.

Experience-you-can-trust

The nursery is managed by a qualified and experienced team that includes an experienced manager and deputy, and a qualified teacher in the early years field at both caring and management levels.
In addition to our experienced management team, we also ensure that all of our permanent staff have an appropriate qualification and several members of our team are graduate level or working towards their degree qualification.

Individual-care-and-attention

We believe that our staff are our most important asset and we devote a significant amount of time into ensuring that we only recruit and retain the best staff. We place great importance on ensuring that our staff to child ratios are consistently well above the national standards to ensure that each child receives the individual care and attention they need to develop new skills and to discover that learning really can be a fun and exciting experience.

  • Communication and Language

    This development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.

  • Physical Development

    It involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

    These involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.

  • Expressive Arts and Design

    The arts and design involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.

  • Literacy

    Development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.

  • Mathematics

    This involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

  • Understanding the World

    It involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.
