Welcome to Nursery

Our time in Nursery will be spent helping your child become inquisitive, engaged and enthusiastic in their learning.
We will work hard on developing friendships and language skills through carefully planned play-based activities inside and outside.

Our curriculum covers all areas of the EYFS and is based around books to foster a love of reading and writing and to develop interests in a range of topics.
