Welcome to Nursery and Reception 

 

Our unit is a safe, exciting and stimulating environment focusing on personalised learning for every child. Children can enjoy activities outside and inside every day, gaining skills in all areas of the curriculum. We have a brand new ‘Playscape’ which encourages investigation and exploration outside; children can enjoy the challenge of climbing up the rock wall or pumping the water through the steel dam. They learn independence whilst feeling supported by our staff. We offer inspire workshops and reading afternoons where parents are invited to spend time learning with their child.
