Our Approach

The very best start

Nursery prospectus cover

A child's early years are of pivotal importance to his or her personal, social, physical, intellectual and spiritual development.

Our approach is therefore designed to ensure that our pupils not only have the opportunity to flourish at this key stage of their lives, but also to acquire the core skills that will enable them to be happy and successful learners for life.

Under the leadership of an experienced Primary Teacher, our team of well qualified, caring and knowledgeable staff aim to recognise each child's strengths and interests and tailor our activities and experiences to develop and challenge the individual child to maximise their potential.

Our goal is to ensure that our pupils are prepared and eager for the important progression to primary years education, regardless of which school your child goes on to.

Partnership with parents

We firmly believe that there should be a real and strong partnership with parents. Your feedback will always be welcome as we strive to ensure that we make your child's experience happy and fun.
Parents are also welcome to spend time in the Nursery and regular informal contact and feedback from your child's Key Person can be expected. More formal written reports will also be provided.

Our promise

We aim to ensure that we deliver the very best nursery education for each and every boy and girl. We promise to:

  • Create a warm, secure and nurturing environment
