Education Offer


We believe all children should have the same opportunities in their life and feel that our nursery is as inclusive as it can be.

Our nursery is located inside Valentines Park and is all on one level with 1 spacious room for under 2’s and 1 large room split into two. One for our 2-3 year olds and the other for our 3-5 year olds. We have disabled access throughout the nursery. We also have extensive outdoor provision.


Identifying children's needs

Staff have key children that they observe and work with closely, they follow the development matters assessment tool to monitor where the child is at. We have twice yearly parents evenings and operate an open door policy to the management team and staff in the 2 year old room complete the 2 year old check that is shared with parents.
