About Us



All children are individuals and have the right to be respected, cared for and treated with equal worth and value. We aim to create an environment that is safe, stimulating, educational and fun by providing a wide curriculum rich in learning opportunities through play. A holistic approach to planning will be fostered to ensure all children can develop through play, practical experiments and experiences of the world around them. We recognise and value that play is fundamental to a child’s early learning and provides a firm foundation from which a child’s education will grow.



During your child’s stay at the nursery/pre-school we aim to:


  • Support and progress your child’s development socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually

  • Provide a wide range of resources and experiences

  • To deliver and plan a holistic curriculum to meet the Early Years Foundation stage framework to stimulate lively and enquiring minds

  • Help your child grow as an individual, learning to care and respect others, set their own challenges and make decisions

  • Help your child grow in confidence and independence

  • Ensure that all planning reflects the needs of all children and gives them a solid foundation to build upon when they move onto school.



We will achieve our aims by:


  • Regular communication with parents, carers, professionals and other outside agencies

  • To work in partnership with others to ensure a holistic approach to supporting a child and their family

  • By respecting the needs of individuals and valuing everyone with equal worth and respect

  • By providing and accessing regular training and information for all staff and volunteers working in the nursery

  • Providing a wide range of suitable equipment, resources and materials

  • All adults acting as positive role models

  • Complying with legislation and regulations in accordance with the Children’s Act, and other Legal frameworks and policies

  • Planning a curriculum which encompasses the seven areas of learning and one which reflects a positive approach to learning through play

  • Planning for the long, medium and short term, ensuring progression and differentiation through a continuous cycle of planning, observing, recording, assessing and reviewing.
