The children have the choice at midday to eat their own packed lunch or a cooked meal which comes from the nearby Primary School canteen.
The Nursery Staff are highly experienced and motivated - there are 2 teachers and 2 nursery assistants. The caretaker, dining attendant and secretary are behind the scenes ensuring that our Nursery is safe, clean and efficient. From time to time part-time staff are employed to provide extra adult support for children with a variety of differing needs.
There are 2 playrooms each with their own bathroom facilities and quiet room areas. Running along both playrooms we have a we have a newly acquired enclosed verandah for all year round physical play.
Outdoor accommodation consists of a large tarmac area, garden with flowerbeds, play house and fort.
We believe in a working partnership with parents and we strive to share this responsibility within a positive and safe environment whereby the children always come first.
