Welcome to our Nursery!

Children in our Nursery setting learn through continuous provision activities, planned in order to meet the Early Years Development Matters objectives. These may take place indoors or outdoors.


When they are developmentally ready, children participate in short group sessions focusing on all areas of the Early Years Curriculum. We also use Cornerstones Curriculum to support them and ensure consistency throughout school. 

These are:

Communication and Language

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Physical Development



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design


Stories are an integral part of Nursery life and children are exposed to lots of different stories and rhymes every day. This supports their language and communication as children are encouraged to talk about the stories they have heard, and to join in! It also supports and builds their vocabulary. 


Children need rich, stimulating and playful experiences that connect purposefully to their interests and daily lives. They need responsive adults who will support their thinking both spontaneously and in carefully planned intentional ways. Evidence is clear, adults play a critical role in building young children’s brains. Children learn more in the first five years of their lives than any other time. The opportunities we provide will have a lasting impact on a child’s future development.

Part of the joy of working in EYFS is that many spontaneous opportunities arise in well-resourced, play-based environments. When an unplanned situation arises we must take advantage of that opportunity.
Children learn in two major ways:
-When they play freely in well-resourced environments with adults sometimes intervening sensitively.
-When adults show children how to do things by modelling.
Children have free-flow access to our large outdoor space for the majority of the day. The outdoor area features a mud kitchen, sandpit, designated bike area, shelters and a climbing frame.
Parents are encouraged to participate in their children’s learning by attending special Nursery workshops with their child.

We have 4 FS rooms- Acorn Room SEND provision, Oak and Willow 2 year olds and Maple Room 3-4 year olds
