Things you can do to get your child ready for starting Nursery:

Read talk and sing together 

Read books, sing songs and nursery rhymes.

Practise self-care skills

Toilet training

Accidents happen when learning a new skill.  We are fully equipped to support your child.  Pack spare underwear and a change of clothes to keep in Nursery.  Practise using the potty or toilet and pulling down own pants.


Take a look at our children in action - learning through play.

This is the start of children’s journey into learning, the most important years of their early lives and we are thrilled you have chosen us as your partners in this adventure!


We are passionate that our children feel secure in enabling environments and form positive relationships with the people they spend time with.  We want them to develop language to communicate with others, share and co-operate and form basic concepts which help them understand the world we live in.

Children learn best through play in an environment that promotes exploration and so resources are organised to provide a wide range of areas of provision, each promoting learning opportunities across some or all of the areas.  These areas are regularly enhanced to support learning across different themes and to follow children’s particular interests.

It is our aim to give the whole family an enjoyable start to school life when they join our school.  We are committed to offering each and every child inspirational learning experiences that set them on their learning journey.
