Our Environment

Our provision is based around the concepts of communication, collaboration and creativity. We believe that children have a ‘language’ that as adults we need to listen to and then work alongside them to develop their interests and skills. All our provision is open-ended enabling children to interpret it in their own way.


We love the outdoors and recognise that it has equal value to the inside. We have a fabulous garden space which gives children a wide range of experiences whether it be in the large sand pit, the mud kitchen, the dens or the large-scale water zone.


We want to change how parents consider school to be – learning doesn’t have to be sat at a table or involve an adult even. It can happen in many, many ways and we have faith in children that that they have the ability to map out their own adventure. Of course we’re with them on the way!


Our Foundation Unit provides integrated provision. This means that Nursery and Reception children are playing and learning alongside one another creating a rich experience for both age groups. At key times of the day Nursery children gather together for songs, stories, sharing and teaching of simple skills. They have a ‘home’ and their own key people who get to know them and their next steps. Regular contact keeps you up to date with how your child is developing.


A child’s early years should be magical and there’s no better place to be magic than
