Nursery Provision

The Nursery is split into 3 units; each room is led by a room co-ordinator supported by qualified nursery nurses. Each member of staff will have the responsibility of a small group of children, following our key person system.

The baby room has been specifically designed to cater for the needs of babies. There is a large play area with doors leading to their own outdoor area. A flexible routine is in place to ensure your own baby’s needs and requirements are followed and your baby’s key person system will report back to you on your child’s day in your own partnership book. The babies experience outings on site including trips to the farm and into the sensory garden.

The toddler room will meet the requirements of the active needs of this age group. As your child develops and grows, this room will cater for all their needs including encouraging independence, interaction with other children and their emotional and social development.

Children will have daily access to a variety of creative activities where an opportunity for messy play occurs, including dough, water, sand and painting.

There is a large play area with doors leading to the outdoor area and forest school sessions are available weekly for this age group. The toddlers will experience outings on site including trips to the farm, sensory garden, nature trails and tractor rides.

The pre school room will meet the requirements and the needs of 3 and 4yr olds. The room has been designed to allow children the opportunity to choice between the indoors and outdoor provision offering a range of activities including creativity, small world, construction, physical, role play and independence skills.

The children access a variety of outings on site including pond dipping, tractor rides, nature walks, visit to the farm and weekly access forest school sessions including den making and exploration of the woods. The pre school children have their own potting shed and poly tunnels where they grow and care for a variety of plants including tomatoes, strawberries and potatoes.
