Nursery

Welcome

Welcome to Spring Grove Nursery, a caring and stimulating environment for children from 2+ years. Spring Grove Nursery has two classes: Teddies (2-3 years) and Giraffes (the pre-school year).

From August 2024 Spring Grove Nursery is launching a new Nursery Holiday Club. This provision, alongside our term-time Nursery offering, will run throughout the year, closing only during the Christmas period, for Bank Holidays and for a staff training day in September. Parents will have the option of choosing between term-time only or 50-week per year provision (subject to availability).

The Nursery is situated in its own building to the side of the main school, with its own large walled garden. Nursery children enjoy their own safe indoor and outdoor spaces, while benefiting from the use of the school hall for lunch, and the expertise of the extended school staff for subjects such as Music, PE, French and Forest School.

Both the Teddies and Giraffes classes have outdoor classroom areas with small areas of artificial grass and large canopies to allow all-year-round free-flow in and out. The children in the Teddies and Giraffes classes also play in the spacious walled garden which is equipped with a sandpit, digging area, mud kitchen, vegetable garden, slack line, climbing frame, fairy garden and music area.

 

A fantastic range of activities, all set in beautiful surroundings and wonderful outside space. Cannot recommend it enough.
Review from DayNurseries

As they progress through the Teddies and Giraffes classes, our Nursery children are encouraged to develop independence and take risks within a safe and secure environment, setting them up for the next step in their education as they eventually move from Nursery into the Reception class. Children develop confidence in themselves and confidence in their ability to learn and achieve.

‘Excellent’ in all areas

In our most recent ISI report the Teaching and Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery + Reception) was rated as Excellent:

‘Children in the EYFS are curious, creative learners and are able to apply their skills extremely effectively…’

‘From an early age pupils display a strong awareness of the need for self-discipline in their approach to work and speak positively about how a diligent approach will help them to succeed. This was observed in Nursery where children were resourceful and resilient in their determination to succeed, which they did with a great sense of self-esteem and pride.’

Tapestry

At Spring Grove we use the Tapestry app to communicate with parents. Tapestry builds a very special record of your child’s experiences, development and learning journey through their early years. Using photos, videos, and diary entries, staff, along with the child’s parents or carers, ‘weave’ the story of the child and how they are growing and developing. The Tapestry platform then works seamlessly to enable these memories to be kept as a permanent record of each child’s unique journey.

All information held in the platform is stored securely and can be downloaded and shared as required. Parents or carers are able to view their child’s progress, the activities provided for them, and how much fun they’re having, whilst also uploading their own comments and media. In addition the Care Diary on Tapestry allows parents in the Nursery to be informed of the food their child has eaten, nappy changes and how long your child has slept (if applicable) during the day.
