The nursery has capacity for 78 children. We have 4 spacious rooms and the children are separated into smaller group sizes depending on their age so that all resources and activities can be appropriate for their age range and abilities.
The children have access to extensive continuous provision and free flow between rooms and the garden to enhance learning and development through child-led play and exploration.
The nursery is very secure as the building is an ex-police armed response unit. The building already has top rate security measures in place to keep children safe including a have 6ft steel security fence around the garden.
There is a very spacious garden which offers educational learning through a sand and water play, construction, sports, and phsyical play. We also have a nature area and a vegetable patch for the children to grow herbs and vegetables.
We are an Ofsted rated 'Good' setting. The report recognises that our quality of teaching is good and staff work effectively in partnership with parents.
We have highly qualified staff members working above the government ratio regulations, ensuring children receive a better quality of care. The Nursery Manager is supernumerary to consistency of practice and ensures all the children’s individual needs and learning outcomes are met.
Since our Ofsted report was published we have invested in more technological resources including tablets with educational, age appropriate games for the children. We have also updated our garden so that it is split into smallers areas including a role play area, construction area, a sensory area/ fairy garden and a seperate non-mobile baby area with rubber mat flooring.
Parents have the option to purchase a Moorwell Miracles uniform for their child to help them settle in and prepare for school.
Our reception that is manned at all times so there is always someone to talk to if you have any queries.
