Nursery

At Leweston Nursery our aim is to nurture, care for and develop the potential of each individual child, encouraging them to delight in discovery as well as in their own increasing knowledge.

We lay the foundations upon which our children build their school career, and indeed, their adult life. We are committed to supporting and encouraging your child’s development, providing our pupils with the very best possible start.

We are always busy in every corner of the Nursery! The children learn through cross-curricular themes and activities that are designed to follow the children’s interests and challenge each child to progress onto the next step in their development. Learning and development opportunities are meticulously planned and considered to ensure that every child gets the very best provision, right from the earliest months of their lives. Our highly qualified and passionate staff track the children’s development and skilfully match activities in the provision to extend, delight and engage each and every child. We hold high expectations for our children and place a great emphasis on the development of the core skills in personal, social and emotional development, physical development and communication and language. As the children grow, a wide range of opportunities for exploration in Maths, Literacy, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design are added, so that every child has the best possible opportunities for learning in every area. We recognise that children need adults to scaffold their learning wherever possible, so we run an enhanced ratio, meaning that we provide additional adults in every unit as often as possible, which enables us to provide truly exceptional care and early education.

From the age of 3 and a half, the children also benefit hugely from our enhanced curriculum. We have Music, PE, French and Spanish and swimming lessons with subject specialists. In addition to this the children have Forest School activity sessions and get to try new activities such as gardening, cookery and animal care. We also benefit greatly from the use of whole school facilities for swimming and PE, and enjoy all our meals, prepared by a team of chefs, in the beautiful dining room. Our children also enjoy the huge benefits of our beautiful site, complete with forest areas, a balancing course, over 42 acres of space and a fully enclosed, secure Nursery garden. We go out for a walk every day, watching the seasons and our glorious environment change before our eyes.

Please do arrange a visit to come and see how happy our Nursery children are for yourself.
