Our nursery is bright and spacious. We have free flow access to a large, fully enclosed garden area with climbing equipment and a range of varied outdoor activities including a mud kitchen, climbing frame, water wall and wendy house. We provide a fun and stimulating learning environment both indoors and outdoors encompassing all seven areas of learning and development.
Before your child starts at our nursery, we offer home visit every family a home visit which provides a wonderful opportunity to meet your child in their home and enables us to familiarise ourselves with your child and family. It also gives us an opportunity to discuss your child's needs, interests, dislikes and any allergies or medical information.
At this time, settling in sessions are agreed and tailored to each individual child. Parents and families are made to feel welcome and valued within the setting, recognising that a child's first educator is their parent or carer.
As the nursery is a part of Desmond Anderson Primary Academy, we are able to utilise their facilities, such as: the school hall for various activities; library; MUGA (multi-use games area); conservation area with its pond and wildlife; the sensory garden, to learn more about plants, wildlife and habitats; the Solar Dome, which is used to grow plants and vegetables; the outside classroom; and the outside stage. In addition to their amazing resources, there are opportunities within the school to participate in sports days, Christmas performances and sessions where we join Reception for reading afternoons.
Each child has an online journal and an achievement book where their progress is recorded, and all their beautiful artwork can be added to celebrate their time at Desmond Anderson Nursery.
