Welcome to our Nursery and Reception
Being part of IMPACT EDUCATION MAT, we have a deep commitment and understanding of a broad, balanced play-based learning approach in our early years provision.
During their time in the Early Years setting, we want our children to become confident, independent, and active learners who are physically and emotionally healthy.
We believe each child is unique and learns best when they have secure, positive, and responsive relationships with adults and peers.
Our learning environment promotes quality interactions, ignites curiosity and motivation for learning and exposes children to use their independent learning and investigative skills.

In Nursery adults will play with children, tuning into their learning needs and deliver teaching in the moment. Children will come together at points through the session to read stories, sing songs and talk with the adult leading. When children go into reception, these adult led activities gradually lengthen as children’s attention span increases and key concepts such as phonics and maths are explored.
