Little Leaders, Big Tomorrow
Welcome to Nursery!
It is our belief that the purpose of education is to provide young people with the knowledge and skills to prepare our children for their diverse working lives, build character, teach knowledge for its own intrinsic value and ignite a love for learning.
In Early Years, we are the opening scene; hooking our littlest learners into a voyage where they will discover a life-long love of learning. We believe it is our duty to provide our children with a strong foundation of knowledge that will equip them with the skills to lead a successful future. Through the provision of an inspiring and rich curriculum accessed through play and adult led activities and high quality direct teaching in phonics, reading, writing and maths, we support our children to become independent and confident lifelong learners.
Our Nursery Provision:
From January 2022, there will be three areas to our nursery provision:
- Gorsemoor Toddlers: this room is for children aged 2-3 years. They will begin their early years adventure, building key skills and knowledge through play, in their own classroom with outdoor space.
- Pre-School: when the children turn 3 they will transition into this room where they share the provision with Nursery. They will continue their exciting learning journey with us, becoming more independent learners.
- Nursery: the children will continue with their learning journey in nursery, developing key skills and independence to prepare them for Reception.
Children can join our nursery setting at any point during the academic year (subject to availability). We recommend that you visit us to take a look around our provision and get a feel for our learning environment. You will be able to meet the nursery staff and see our nursery in action.
Places for two year olds:
From January 2022, we will offer nursery places for two year olds. These places can be funded by the 'Think 2' funding scheme or can be paid for.
