Nurture Day Nurseries is a setting of imagination and inspiration,
abacuses to high-tech computers, Lego, books and cuddly bears; a warm
haven that exudes the amazing experience of childhood. A place bursting
with happy faces and enchantment.
Children learn more effectively from play and activities. From a young age they are conversationalists who require stimulating chat and access to a library of books. They are little experimental Einsteins, constructing engineers, dynamic acrobats and ingenious painters.
At Nurture Day Nurseries we embrace these childhood traits and create active experiences to unleash their full potential, not just for their younger years but for success in life.
We love an adventure! Outdoor play, sports and outings in the big wide world are deep within our curriculum.
We love to celebrate! Birthdays and religious festivals are recognised and embraced at Nurture Day Nurseries. We want all the children to understand each other’s multi-cultural background and enjoy the variety in our nursery.
A regular day would involve free play to develop their senses, confidence,
experimental nature and sociability. The toys offered are specific to
this age group to advance their physical development and gross motor
skills. Sing songs, story time and art activities are planned for their
social awareness and creative flare. There is an abundance of cuddles
and reassurance to keep them emotionally comforted for the day.
Building on a typical day for a baby in our care, we understand that
toddlers would want to discover and explore further. Skills such as
perfecting their walk and balance, along with social, communication
and emotional development are stimulated. There is plenty of fun playing
in all kinds of messy activities, which matures their tactile and sensory
capabilities. The traditional sing-songs, story time, free play and
craft activities complete a jam-packed day.
The pre-schoolers will still embrace the entertainment of a nursery
whilst embedding the beginnings of school life. The structured learning
environment will encourage writing, story-telling, reading through phonics,
introductory reading schemes and numeracy. We also endeavour to prepare
them physically, mentally and emotionally by teaching them, for example,
to problem solve, listen to instructions, work as a team and manage
We are dedicated to creating lifelong learners using the statutory
requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and its four
guiding themes not as an ambition but as a starting point:
A Unique Child recognises that every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. The commitments are focused around development; inclusion; safety; and health and well-being.
Positive Relationships describes how children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and their child care specialist. The commitments are focused around respect; the partnership with parents; supporting the learning process; and the role of the child care specialist.
Enabling Environments explains that the environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning.
The commitments are focused around observations, assessments and planning; unique support for every child; the education environment; and the wider context – transitions to school, continuity, and multi-agency working.
Learning and Development recognises that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates, and that all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected.
Nurture Day Nurseries will ensure the following requirements are achieved for your child:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Literacy and Mathematics
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
