The premises provide excellent play spaces including a secure outside play area.

The nursery is well resourced, giving daily opportunities for the development of early literacy and numeracy skills. In addition, the nursery provides craft activities, music, sand, water and imaginative play, together with outdoor experiences using play and games equipment. 

We use resources outside the nursery such as the shops, library, woodland and park to enhance provison provided. 

Children are encouraged to respect adults and each other to develop their personal and social skills alongside positive self esteem.

Learning takes place through a mix of adult and child led learning experiences. We ensure the children are provided with equal and balanced learning opportunities within all areas of the nursery.
