Information For Parents

DSCN0469The Nursery, which serves Horspath, Garsington, Cuddesdon, Cowley and Wheatley, employs a high ratio of quality staff to ensure the children attending the nursery are given an excellent start to their formal education.

Our curriculum is planned carefully to provide a wide range of exciting play opportunities and to develop basic skills and the knowledge necessary for a smooth start into school. The staff teach the children in small groups and spend much of the time working with the children on a one to one basis. This ensures that activities are tailored to meet children’s individual needs and gives opportunities for each child to be supported and extended where appropriate. The Staff also assess the children regularly so that they can quickly identify areas where children need extra help or show particular strengths which can be encouraged.

We encourage the active involvement of all of our parents and carers in the nursery. Together, we create a fostering, nurturing and welcoming place of learning and fun for our children.

Arranging a Visit

We know that parents often like to visit a nursery before they decide to place their child there. We respect that approach and make the most to accommodate parents ‘doing their research’. Please contact our Nursery on 01865 876750 or via staff@horspathnursery.org.uk to make arrangements for a visit.

Chat with a Current Parent

If you would like to speak with a current parent of one of our children, we would be happy to arrange that for you. Please contact the nursery directly and we’ll forward your details to one of our parents, to give you a ring.
