Welcome to the St. Bernadette Nursery Page.
Our Nursery is a welcoming, happy, secure and productive environment where children can enjoy their learning. Through observation, interaction and through conversing with parents, the staff and children get to know each other very well and build a positive partnership between home and Nursery. The work we do with the children is planned following the 'Early Years Foundation Stage' curriculum. All our children have access to a stimulating and challenging environment that has a strong emphasis on learning through play and first hand experiences. Children participate in a mixture of structured independent choices, challenges and focused adult-led activities. These include working with construction toys, role-play, painting, sand and water play, modeling, computer work, drawing, small world play and a wide variety of outdoor activities. We encourage children to be independent in everything they do and give them every opportunity to socialise with their peers and adults because we see this as a vital element for future development in all areas of the curriculum.
