Nursery activities and services

Children love our exceptional Learning through Play programme. Everyone gets lots of individual attention and personal support. We find that by offering personalised and individual attention at the very early stages of a child’s educational journey and at such a formative stage in their lives, serves to maximise potential, building an intangible confidence which is pivotal to future success.
2 girls play outdoors
Being outdoors in our Nursery is fun! Our children spend time outdoors every day. Wearing wellies and waterproof dungarees are almost part of our school uniform! We have a lively nursery playground area, mud kitchen, Fantastical Forest, Secret Garden and Wild Wood. Children can scramble over our nursery fort and climbing frame, dig in our large sandpit, 'cook' in our mud kitchen and play with our wide range of outdoor toys.

All families are invited to biannual parent consultations and receive an annual formal written report.
