Welcome to Super Squirrels and Happy Hedgehogs
We are the Nursery. In Nursery we have lots of fun playing and learning. We do this inside or outside in our very own playground. We run a 3 hour session either morning or afternoon.
During both of the three hour sessions we run the Happy Hedgehogs, our 2 year old children, and the Super Squirrels, our 3-4 year old children. All the children will have access to all areas of the early years curriculum and will learn through planned play activities.
These are the adults you will meet in nursery:

Both age groups follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is split into 7 subjects. The children will learn through play activities. A lot of the play activities are independent choices made by the child; as the children get older they will sometimes be asked to work at a focused, adult led, learning activity. Learning will take place both inside and outside.
Although a lot of the learning is independent, there is a structure in place within each session. How the session is structured depends on whether the child is with the Happy Hedgehogs, or Super Squirrels. As the children work and play, all staff observe and take note of what children do and say, and these observations are then used to inform the planning of the activities. This will enable the children to make progress through the EYFS.
As the children are so young, we do place an emphasis on social skills, and support toilet training to make your children independent.
We do too many lovely things to list; if you think your child would enjoy coming to learn with us, please come and visit!
