Our Potterswood site operates from a bungalow set in peaceful woodland on the grounds of John Cabot Academy. We are lucky to have our own private woodland area adjoining the nursery which both sites use for our Forest School sessions.
Both our sites house separate baby facilities. In this warm environment our staff care for up our babies aged six weeks to two years old. Ensuring we give the babies individual attention, support, stimulation, fun, lots of love and experiences is of utmost importance to us. An adult ratio of 1:3 enables each baby’s individual routine to be carefully followed. Our separate homely sleep room, connected by a baby monitor, allows the babies to sleep in safety and undisturbed
Fascinated with the world around them our staff nurture our groups of toddlers with a balance of routine, provocations, experiences and moments of quiet rest. Although toddlers are learning to be more independent an adult ratio of 1:4 allows them to enjoy cuddles and link up to familiar adults for support.
Pre School Room
Our group of sixteen pre school children aged 2.5 – 5 years enjoy an exciting day filled with endless fun, provacations and learning opportunities through play. Our Staff promote each child’s confidence and self esteem to equip them with the skills needed to become competent learners. The children enjoy an adult ratio of 1:8 in this room.
We view the garden as an outdoor classroom where a huge amount of learning takes place. The children have access to the garden throughout the day with our free flow system. Even in the rain and snow they enjoy some invaluable learning experiences.
We have a large grass area that provides an array of open ended learning opportunities such as den building, balancing and digging in the mud kitchen and construction areas. An artificial turfed area offers opportunities for sand and water play. We provide lots of educational opportunities and experiences and there is a bug hotel for the more adventurous ones! Designated planting areas enable the children to grow and tend to plants and vegetable crops.
Our teams are passionate about providing high quality childcare and education and are proud to be part of shaping each child’s future.Book a visit
