Welcome

Our children in The Brook Nursery are cared for within a BSI Inspection rated "outstanding" setting. Our key goals are care and acceptance. Children are absorbed in fun and the adventure of learning both indoors and outdoors in our extensive grounds and forest school. They develop confidence and a wealth of new skills within a unique environment that presents plentiful opportunities for play, interaction and development- providing children with the best possible start in life.

 

In The Brook Nursery we accept children from the age of 2 and offer local authority funding for both 2 and 3-4 year olds. We are also excited to offer 30 hour funded places.

 

The Brook Nursery runs from 9.00am until 3.00pm. There is a Breakfast Club that runs from 8.00am and an after school club that runs until 5.15 for children aged 3 years and above.

At The River School Early Years we implement the Early Years foundation stage (EYFS). We teach the children through adult led and child initiated activities that are planned to meet the individual child’s needs. The children have access to exciting and stimulating indoor and outdoor play areas to enable them to learn through play.

 

Each child has a keyworker to ensure that the children and their families feel safe, secure and valued.
