During yoga our children learn different poses and stretches while exploring their imagination. Children learn about physical activity, turn taking and participation while having lots of fun.
Little Legends Football
Little Legends Footbal gives children something to look forward to each week and is a great way for parents to enrol their child in an extra-curricular activity without an additional time investment. Classes are around 45 minutes long and are filled with football fun for your Little Legend.
Our children are given the opportunity to explore another language through weekly Spanish lessons during term-time. These Spanish lessons are available at an additional cost.
Our nursery enjoys great ties with our local community and we are often out and about visiting local sights and getting involved in events.
Our children develop their creativity, confidence and movement skills through these fun and energetic dance classes.
We celebrate the big move to primary school with a special graduation ceremony each year—caps, gowns, the works!
Bi Lingual Staff
We are lucky to have bi-lingual staff who are able to support children in their first language, or in exploring new languages. This not only helps children settle well into nursery, but also provides opportunity to better understand and celebrate children's cultures and heritage. We have staff fluent in French, Arabic and Lebanese.
Eco Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is designed to encourage action on sustainable development education issues. Our children love getting involved in their Eco Schools projects and learning about how to help protect the environment.
Caring for animals can be a very calming and relaxing experience for children as well as an opportunity to assess risk. This provides many vital learning opportunities and skills that supports children's transition to school and adult life. Children name, feed and care for nursery pets.
Settling in Sessions
Our nursery offers settling in sessions. Parents can bring their child for a couple of hours first, gradually introducing the child to a new environment. Settling in sessions are aimed at helping your child to adapt to their new surroundings and become more familiar with the staff and other children.
Our nursery encourages children to celebrate festivals throughout the year. This is one of the best ways for children to learn about different religions and cultures by celebrating various world religious festivals, food tasting from different countries, and dressing up in the national dress of their friends.
Christmas Nativity Show
We celebrate Christmas by putting on a wonderful Christmas show for friends and family each year. There's always much excitement in preparing for the show as we learn songs and organise our special dress ups.
We offer families the choice of purchasing a nursery uniform. These optional uniforms offer a smart and practical clothing choice for play at nursery.
Each year we celebrate Easter with a special Easter Parade - enjoyed by all our little ones!
We accept your courier deliveries to make things that little bit easier for busy mums and dads.
Taking part in fundraising activities helps children to learn about others that are less fortunate than themselves and understand how we can help them. Fundraising events are good fun and are a great way to get children, families and communities together. Some of the fundraisers we have taken part in are; sponsored toddles, superhero days, bake sales and garden parties. We are currently fundraising for the Salvation Army and Comic Relief.
In recognition that education begins in the home, we are fully committed to a partnership approach with parents. Parents are kept up to date with quarterly newsletters, parent focus groups and parent’s evenings twice a year. Parents are also able to keep up to date with activities going on in the nursery by following our social media accounts; Instagram, Facebook, Twitter
