Nursery Ethos

At Horspath Nursery we feel that Children’s early years are the most important years of their lives. We strive to provide high quality childcare and education for all children’s individual needs. We provide this by being positive, respectful, relaxed with the nursery having a homely, welcoming feel. We provide support and learning opportunities that are age appropriate for all children and their families.

We feel that working in partnership with parents is vital for effective learning and development for all children. This is achieved by building relationships with children and their families.

The learning environment is key to providing children with a sense of security, belonging and effective learning.

We feel that keeping children fit and healthy is an essential part of childcare. We promote this by having access to a wildlife area , school playground and nursery gardens on a regular basis and through providing healthy snacks. We also encourage parents to provide healthy packed lunches.

The Nursery has been open since 1977.   It has been an integral part of the community and has provided a high quality of childcare and education for local families.

As a team we constantly self-evaluate the care and learning provided for the children in our care.
