We have a 30 place preschool room that offers daily sessions during school term-time. Children are eligible to join the Nursery in the term following their 3rd birthday (September, January or April). Nursery Leaflet
We aim to develop children’s independence, by providing encouragement and support, and embracing a ‘can do’ philosophy.
We provide a wide range of play activities – both indoors and outdoors to help children develop physically, personally, and develop their creativity.
We value children’s ideas through involving them in planning the work they do and drawing on and extending their existing knowledge.
We encourage children to be curious about the world around them and aim to follow the children’s interests.
We help children develop their social skills through the provision of opportunities to work and play in groups, allowing them to learn collaboratively.
All children (aged 3) are entitled to 15 hours of funding through the Early Years Entitlement Grant. An additional 15 hours of free childcare is available for families where both parents are working (or the sole parent is working in a lone-parent family) and each parent earns the equivalent of 16 hours a week at the national living wage and earns less than £100,000 a year.
Parents must confirm their eligibility via the HMRC online checker:

The Nursery team work together to plan a curriculum that meets the changing developmental needs of all children. The activities on offer are designed to build on your child’s previous experiences, reflect their interests and extend their learning and development.
We provide a safe and nurturing environment, resources and experiences to stimulate your child’s curiosity and creative play.
The Nursery timetable is designed to provide an understandable and regular routine which supports the children’s learning. It provides a mix of large group activities (story-time, circle-time, discussions), small group activities (snack-time and staff-led explorations) and individual activities. It provides a balance of both staff-planned and child-initiated activities and a large amount of outdoor learning, including Forest School.
