Nursery Information Page!

We have a large 50 place Nursery, in the morning and afternoon. Our children begin their Nursery experience the term after they turn 3. Nursery entry points are: September, January and April.


The children in Nursery learn through play. The Nursery children have a large indoor and outdoor environment which is very exciting and enables the children to engage in play and enquiry based learning. 


The curriculum the children learn through is called:

The Early Years Foundation Stage

(encompassing children's learning from 0 - 5 years) 


In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) there are 7 areas of learning and development:

Prime Areas:  

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language  


Specific Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
