From roots to wings – our new Nursery crest!

To celebrate Grace Dieu Nursery’s first birthday, we have designed a beautiful new Nursery crest!

The crest is a wonderful representation of what happens when children join Grace Dieu Nursery – as they grow they move up through different rooms, each tailored to the needs and interests of that specific age group.  All of our rooms are included in the crest – Blossom, Catkins, Pine Cones, Acorns and Cygnets.

“Our whole nursery philosophy is focused on helping children to grow and develop – to explore the world around them in a caring, fun and educationally stimulating environment,” says Nursery Manager Jenny Page-Faulkner. “Our unique transition into the Cygnets class, for our oldest Nursery children, really does foster and develop ‘school readiness.”

This movement through the Nursery, as well as the growth and development our children enjoy during their time at Grace Dieu Nursery, is also expressed on the crest in our new motto – ‘From roots to wings’.

“It is wonderful to see the Nursery continue to grow and thrive, with a record amount of interest from prospective parents,” concludes Headmistress Margaret Kewell. “The new crest beautifully mirrors the School’s own crest, showcasing how the Nursery is an integral part of our Grace Dieu community.”
