Nursery (from 2 until 5)

No two days are ever the same here at Clayesmore Nursery. Our children are always offered a multitude of experiences and things to explore, from swimming in our heated pool to challenging ourselves at forest school; from learning the delights of music, dance and yoga to searching for creatures in the woods and pond dipping in the lake. Amongst all of these opportunities there is time given to be ‘me’.

We pride ourselves in offering plenty of the essential time children need for play, be it on the whole school pirate ship, in our enchanted garden, or in the confines of our bespoke nursery building with all the plentiful resources on offer to inspire little minds.  

The children are given the necessary free flow access between the nursery and the garden, enabling them to learn in their way, in an environment that is right for them. Our enthusiastic and caring staff are always at hand to offer any support needed.

We emphasise and build good working relationships with our parents and carers to make sure every child’s individual needs are met. This we ensure through daily handovers with each child’s key worker. Every child in the nursery also has an online learning journal, which allows parents and carers to access all aspects of their child’s day including observations, photos and videos. This is not only very enjoyable, but also extremely beneficial during the settling-in period.

Our aim in the Nursery is to give each child the best possible start in building a true love for learning through their play and exploration. The children are at the heart of everything we do and we take every step to ensure that they flourish in a happy and nurturing environment. 

Please come and visit us, or drop by on a Friday morning at our toddler group ‘Bushy Tails’. You can then see for yourself what a truly magical place Clayesmore Nursery is.
