Welcome to the Nursery
We aim to provide a stimulating learning environment for your child through structured play activities and focused groups, according to the age and needs of the children.
In line with the early learning goals, we also aim to realise the potential of every child regardless of gender, race and culture, in all aspects of learning and development. In partnership with parents and carers we are all working towards helping each child to achieve the following:-
· To listen carefully
· To communicate with others confidently and with understanding
· To develop early reading and writing and numeracy skills and to use these as appropriate
· To develop an interest and awareness in his/her environment
· To develop a positive self image and meaningful relationships
· To develop tolerance, respect, care and understanding of others and the environment
· To develop independence eg dressing, toileting, washing, eating etc
· To develop confidence
· To acquire a sense of enjoyment, and to have a positive attitude to learning.
