Nursery

Nursery

Every day at St George’s nursery is packed with fun-filled learning and adventures.

Our nursery rooms and resources have the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) completely covered. Children can relax with a book; get busy with construction toys or role-playing props; get creative with musical instruments, art and craft materials and our sand and water areas; learn in our maths areas and explore the garden. Our range of resources embraces the needs of a wide variety of abilities and cultures, giving our children the chance to learn about the different backgrounds of their new friends.

Independent, happy children

We want our children to learn, play and explore indoors and out; and of course, have lots of fun; this way, a thirst for learning stays with them for life.

At St George’s, we encourage independence by letting our children choose what they want to play with throughout most of the day. This helps them to become confident at making choices as they grow. Our amazing staff even bring in special toys and activities to extend each child’s learning.

Professional, caring staff

Consistency is important for children, so each room has its own Senior Childcare Leader and Childcare Practitioners. To cover absences, we have a floating staff team and extra supply staff to support other team members wherever they are needed. Our staff are fully qualified to work with children, or have many years’ experience as nursery assistants. We also provide regular training sessions, delivered in-house or by outside trainers, to energise everyone and keep our ideas fresh.

Our staff are carefully chosen, not only for their professionalism, but because they really care about the wellbeing of our children and fit in with the St George’s ‘family’. They are all excellent role models, ensuring that everyone has fun, but also learn to listen to and respect each other.
