Our Nursery Rooms

Our nursery has five rooms – each of which are specifically tailored to the needs and interests of that specific age group. Whilst children move up when they are ready, they also have plenty of opportunity to continue to play with their peers during group activities and playtimes.

Each room is spacious and light with a wide range of age appropriate toys and learning opportunities.

Blossom (12 weeks – 12 months) is run by Nicky, our Deputy Manager and supported by Andrea or Julia.

Catkins (13m – 19m months) is run by Charlotte and supported by Claire E

Pine Cones (20 months – 2 years) – is run by Kerry-Anne and supported Claire E

Acorns (2 years – 3 years)– is run by Amanda and supported by Claire U.

Cygnets (3-4 yrs) – is run by Alison and Dawn. The Cygnets room is located in our Pre-Prep building, which is situated close to the Nursery, and is focused on preparing children to be ready for School. The move to Cygnets is made when the children are ready (around the age of 3) and there is a carefully considered transition. The move into a new building provides an excellent opportunity for our Nursery children to grow further, in preparation for their move to School. Part of the change to School Readiness is the move into School uniform at this age (a School polo t-shirt and jumper, worn with blue tracksuit bottoms).

Each week, during term time, children are able to (depending on the day they attend) take part in specialist music classes, PE, Outdoor Learning, Swimming and French. All taught by qualified teachers and all included within the daily fees.

Cygnets are based in two spacious classrooms, each with direct access to the secure play area outside – which has a whole host of fun equipment to enjoy!
