A child’s first step on the road to education is one of the most important steps they will make. As they approach three years old your child will become ready to take their first steps outside of the family unit and into the world of Nursery.
Explorers is a fun, stimulating and friendly Nursery led by a fully qualified teacher. Children enjoy structured learning in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The setting is purpose built with age appropriate resources and a large, enclosed outdoor play area.
OFSTED said that our children -
‘behave very well and are kept very safe’
‘make good progress and achieve well’
'are thriving and making very good progress in a range of skills'
Our fifty two place Nursery is part of the school community at St George’s Infant School with many of our children moving into the school when they reach four years old.
Your child is invited to join Explorers from the beginning of the term that they turn three. Fifteen hour funding starts the term after their third birthday with the option to extend this to up to twenty four hours or four days a week for eligible working parents.
At Explorers we understand that trusting your child into someone else's care can be unsettling. Our Teacher and Nursery staff ensure that both children and parents feel happy and confident in our safe and caring setting.
During every session carefully planned play activities support children in developing skills and learning, appropriate to their individual needs and abilities.
Learning through play is freely accessible. Children choose what they would like to do and when to move between activities. They can access a large enclosed outdoor area which is available at most times. Skilled staff within the setting join the children in their play helping them to explore their ideas, practise new skills and move forward in their learning.
Weekly newsletters let parents know what's planned for the following week and our open door policy provides opportunity to talk with staff at drop off and collection times.
If you would like your child to join our confident and happy learners and feel attending our vibrant and caring Nursery is the next step for them, please call the school admin team on 01237 477262 or use our contact page to arrange a visit. You will be shown around our purpose built Nursery, have the opportunity to meet the teacher and Nursery staff and any questions you may have will be answered.
