Our Nursery at Robert Peel is a fantastic place for children to begin their nursery learning and development, the provision is early years teacher-led with a team of specialist Nursery Staff and Learning Support Assistants all with a focus on excellence in education.
It is our aim at our Nursery to ensure that every child develops a lively and enquiring mind, feels happy and secure, and fulfils their full potential in every aspects of personal development and the Early Years Curriculum. We provide a well-resourced, stimulating environment that meets the needs of all of our three and four year olds. We endeavour to provide children with the opportunities to become independent and aim to foster, in every child, a positive self-motivating attitude towards learning.
Children are given the opportunity to select and choose activities for themselves whilst our enthusiastic adults give guidance and direction to allow and facilitate learning. The early stages of your child’s school career is carefully monitored and observed, this is then used to inform planning and ensure that all interests are developed as well as being documented through a series of photos and observations which are then put together in your child’s ‘Learning Journey’ to show their successes.
We know that our approach to early education gives lasting benefits to all our children and it lays a secure foundation for the rest of their education. Our staff thoroughly enjoy seeing the children grow and watching them become inquisitive and independent learners which is something we hope continues throughout their education.
Every child is entitled to 15 hours free Nursery provision the term after they turn three and we take 3 intakes a year – September, January and April (Dependent on spaces available). Some families are entitled to 30 hours of free childcare. Dependent on availability we are able to offer those families who are entitled to 30 hours free child care full time places and where available, extra sessions can be purchased by families.
