Quality play



Learning and development

The nursery provides children with a free-flow environment where independence is encouraged through access to resources and equipment, both inside and out. With support from nursery staff, children can develop their own play, individually or with others. The nursery employs sufficient staff to ensure rations of 1:8 or on occasion 1:13, depending on whether the Early Years Professional (EYP) is working directly with the children.

Children are provided with:

  • Highly qualified staff, who hold relevant Early Years Childcare qualifications up to degree level.
  • An allocated key person.
  • A purpose-built area, which includes the main nursery room, a rest room, cloakroom and a safe outside area with a garden.
  • Access to the school’s facilities.
