Welcome to Nursery


In Nursery, our main aim is to provide a safe and nurturing environment which in turn will enable children to thrive and learn.

Our goals for young children are: 

  • to be happy and secure in the learning environment 
  • to learn through active involvement with people, materials, events and ideas
  • to be independent, confident and resilient learners
  • to explore, relate to others, to set their own goals and solve problems.


We will strive to provide the children with a rich curriculum that meets the children's interests, their well-being and yet still provides them with memorable first hand learning experiences.


We want our children to have the best possible start to their learning journey here in our wonderful Nursery! 


We can't wait to work with you all,

Mrs Jackson, Mrs Muir, Mrs Tough & Miss Allan

We have taken part in some crafts ready for Eid and Easter- it is such an exciting time for lots of our children.
