Our Environment in Nursery and Reception

Our environment 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 are lucky to have a purpose-built Early Years Unit, which was opened in September 2019. Our Nursery and Reception classrooms are large and spacious, and all have direct access to the outdoors. 
We love the outdoors and recognise that it has equal value to the inside. We have a school woods on site as well as a large garden space which gives children a wide range of experiences. We have mud kitchens, a water play area, a sensory area, and even a large climbing frame. The outdoor space is planned and resourced by the team to allow the children to develop their skills across all the areas of learning. 
We believe that learning doesn’t just happen when children are sat at a table: children can map out their own adventures. 

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