Our Nursery reflects the nurturing and supportive learning environment of our current Early Years provision where your child will grow and thrive.
Our Busy Blog
The nursery team consists of Mrs Hollingsworth (Nursery Teacher), Mrs Abraham (Early Years Practitioner), Miss Anglin (Early Years Teaching Assistant) and Miss Essen (Early Years Practitioner). All members of the team work hard to offer a nurturing and supportive learning environment for the children to thrive and grow. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum with an emphasis on promoting the characteristics of effective learning. This approach fosters a love of learning and provides challenge linked closely to developmentally age appropriate experience. We strive to create an environment where the children feel confident to explore and discover new things. As a Nursery, we understand that all children are unique and understand the importance of following their individual interests.

It is great to see all of the children settling into the Nursery and creating relationships with their peers and grown-ups. This week, all of the children have participated in a turn taking activity. There has been four activities which included: playing the game ‘Dotty Dinosaurs’, doing a jigsaw in a group, reading ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see?’ as well as retelling the story, and lastly, playing I spy. The children have thoroughly enjoyed these group activities and have also been exploring them independently too.
We have been learning about healthy and unhealthy foods in Nursery and looking at why we eat certain foods and why they are good for us. On the other hand, we have been questioning what we think is unhealthy and why as well.
It is also great to see the children becoming more confident performing on the stage. This has been done independently or with peers. Some of the performances included singing, dancing or playing a musical instrument. The audience loved every one of them!
Lastly, we have been focusing on the story ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?’ The children have loved listening to this story and joining in as a group. The author of this book, Eric Carle is our class artist and throughout the year, we will be exploring a lot more of his work.
