At School House Nursery we provide a happy, homely atmosphere with lots of individual attention. Our aim is to keep early learning fun in a safe, healthy and secure environment where each child reaches their maximum potential We hope to give the children enjoyment and a feeling of fulfilment to equip them for life and future learning by providing good foundations on which to build.

We have a dedicated childcare team to guide the children with their carefully selected Early Learning activities. The team is lead by Early Years Professionals alongside Qualified Early Years Practitioners.The nursery implements the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which is designed to give children the best start in life and support to fulfil their full potential. This incorporates four principles which complement each other, these are A unique Child, Positive Relationships, Enabling Environment and Learning and Development.

The Learning and Development areas fall into seven learning areas which are;

PRIME AREAS

  • Communication Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development

SPECIFIC AREAS

  • Expressive Art and Design
  • Understanding of the World
  • Mathematics
  • Literacy

In order to develop children’s full potential most learning will take place through play activities appropriate for each child’s age and ability.

We believe that parents are a child’s first most enduring educators. As such consider our relationship with parents and carers is vital in establishing a healthy, trusting relationship between staff and parents which will benefit the child in all aspects of nursery life. It maintains continuity of care and provides support for both the child and parent at such an early age. To support this each child has a key person who has the responsibility of meeting a child’s emotional, physical and learning needs.
