We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new children and their families and to say a big welcome back to our existing children and their families. We look forward to working closely with you, as we recognise the importance of working together to provide your child with the best possible learning outcomes. We appreciate how difficult it can be leaving your little ones for the day. However, once in Tots they will be well cared for and fully supported to develop their social, emotional, physical and communication and language skills.
Each day, your child will take part in small group sessions which will include a focus on turn taking and communication. Our children also help out with the lesson planning each week and choose what they would like to learn about and what we are going to cook. In Tots, we love to sing, paint and explore both indoors and outdoors, often using our binoculars and magnifying glasses to hunt for bugs. We love music time, dough disco, yoga, role play, sharing and telling stories, but most of all, we love to get messy!
Is there anything you would like your child to share with their friends? Are you doing something different with your child? Visiting somewhere they haven’t been before or doing something they really enjoy? Let us know so that we can talk to your child about their experience. Send information, along with pictures where possible to our Tots Manager, Kate via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brandhall Nursery offers a great early years provision for children of 3 to 4 years before they start Reception class. We provide a safe and stimulating environment in which all children are encouraged and supported to explore and learn.
We believe that young children learn most effectively through play and active learning and we provide the ideal environment to enable them to do this both indoors and outdoors. We offer educational experiences which develop their confidence, independence and competence. The staff provide a broad, stimulating and balanced curriculum which covers the seven areas of learning, in both play based and also teacher led experiences. Staff talk to the children about what they are learning and help to challenge and extend their thinking, developing new skills.
