About Little Saints
Little Saints Nursery extended into our purpose built single storey nursery building in September 2017. This allowed us to expand our Nursery provision to welcome babies and toddlers to join our Pre-School children in a setting for children aged 0 to 4 years, open for 51 weeks a year. Our Nursery children have access to 17 acres of glorious school grounds, including a beautiful Forest School in our woodland. Nursery children also have use of the school’s extensive facilities which include a Sports Hall-cum-Theatre, Art & DT Rooms, Cookery Area and two libraries. Healthy meals are cooked in our in-house kitchens and Nursery children in our Pre-School room enjoy eating their lunch in the school Dining Room. Children have weekly French, and PE sessions with specialist teachers. All Nursery children (starting from babies) have music sessions with a specialist music teacher, at least once a week.
At Little Saints Nursery we pride ourselves in creating a home from home environment within which all of our children are loved, cared for and respected as the unique individuals they are. While play and fun are at the heart of all we do, they are underpinned by a fully developed Early Years curriculum, and all activities are carefully designed to help children build the skills they need to start school full of confidence.
All our children, from the youngest babies, follow a specially tailored and richly diverse Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum with access to specialist staff from the Junior School. A wide variety of fun and exciting learning opportunities are provided for the children, which take place both in and out of doors.
We provide a warm, friendly, family atmosphere that encourages a strong link with parents, fostering a bond of trust, where children become confident, happy and independent learners. Each child is treated as an individual from their very first day.
‘Babies respond positively to the friendly, caring staff and go readily to them for cuddles and reassurance. Staff create a comfortable, welcoming play environment. They are keen to support babies' and toddlers' progress and encourage them to learn through investigation and exploration.’
