A Very Warm Welcome to Nursery
For some children Nursery is often their first opportunity to venture alone into the wider world outside the family home. Therefore these first interactions and experiences must be of the highest quality as they can form lasting foundations on which the children use to build upon later in life.
Our children are taught in the Butterfly and Rainbow Nursery by 2 Teachers (Mrs McCormick and Mrs Henry), 2 Teaching Assistants (Mrs Hawkes and Mrs Lee) and are supported by Mrs Robson, Mrs Stobbs and Mrs Craig.

We enjoy playing alongside the children, giving them the opportunity to become so deeply absorbed in their play and as highly skilled and experienced practitioners we know exactly where to interject and enhance their play further to ensure we reach high levelled deeply engrossed and satisfying play where the children can’t help but make progress. We work extremely hard to create an independent, rich and exciting environment where children can choose where to play, choice most definitely leads to self satisfaction. We use children’s own interests to help with our environment too so the more information you can tell us about your child the quicker we can enhance their new room and personalise their learning. We love to choose a weekly book and explore it to its maximum potential, sometimes acting scenes out first and then when reading the book the children are always excited to make the connection.
“Staff are adept at using topics which captivate children and motivate them to learn… Children were completely engrossed, showing high levels of perseverance”. (Ofsted 2015).
“Children quickly become confident and enquiring learners because they feel safe. They understand the daily routines and the expectations of adults as they listen carefully and respond well” (Ofsted 2015).
