What we Do
Our Kindergarten operate from 3 classrooms in the children’s centre. We also have use of the Thomas Boughey Nursery School dining room. All of our classrooms have free flow access to the stimulating and inviting outdoor area. Our baby room has a separate outdoor area, while the toddler and preschool children share the large outdoor area with Thomas Boughey Nursery School. Close links with the Nursery School allowing an easy transition.
Flexible care arrangements can be arranged that cater for parents individual work needs. We also have term time only options for parents who are in education. We are extremely close to both Stoke on Trent College and Staffordshire University. Our location is also on the bus route for Keele University.
We are also a Forest School Nursery; we take a group of older children to a local woodland area which we are licensed to use on a weekly basis. This introduces them to an environment that they can explore and thrive in. This of course is based outside of the ‘usual’ classroom environment. Our ethos of education has origins in Scandinavian Countries. (See more in Our Environment section).
Our Staff and Children welcome visitors at any time no need to book, although it can be rather busy at lunch time!
We look forward to showing you around our nursery.
