Early Years education is vitally important for all children. We are so very fortunate to be able to offer Early Years education to so many children. We operate on a full basis, with a maximum of 45 children.  We have highly trained and experienced members of staff.

The nursery provides the opportunity for children to learn in a happy, safe and secure environment.  Learning can be fun! This is where the children learn to develop the basis of all language, mathematical, musical, artistic, scientific, social and physical skills they will need throughout their time in school.

Our nursery day is carefully planned to develop all the skills listed above.  It is a mixture of structure and choice, with children expected to undertake certain activities during the session.

Play is also an important aspect of the child’s development. It encourages speaking, listening, social and imaginative skills.
