Nursery (Little Owls)
At Little Owls Nursery we provide a free-flow environment where children have access to the inside and outside nursery environment throughout the course of the nursery day and in all weathers. Children love to explore the outside mud kitchen and play equipment and this environment allows their ideas to flow freely will less obstructions.
Each child is well cared for by staff with the relevant qualifications to work with children's interests and needs. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum to support your child’s learning and development and follow your child’s interests at nursery and at home to plan stimulating activities to enhance their learning. Your child will be given a Key Person who will monitor their progress and skills during their time at nursery and who will be a valuable adult during your child's time here.
We offer flexible provision with a choice of morning sessions (8.45am -11.45am) or afternoon sessions (12.00pm - 3.00pm) as well as a full day from 8.45am -3.00pm. Every child is entitled to up to 15 hours free nursery provision per week during term time after their third birthday until they start school. We now offer a limited number of spaces of the extended entitlement which offers 30 hours childcare provision for eligible children and families. Please contact us to find out more.
