About us

The Village Nursery School was established in 1997 and our reputation has grown amongst parents and schools alike, testament to which is the number of siblings we have had the privilege of teaching.

We strive to create a relaxed, trusting, and caring atmosphere where children are encouraged to pursue their own interests, develop friendships, and grow in confidence and independence.

We have a wonderful team of teachers, the majority of whom are mothers themselves. We operate a key-teacher system for each child, with a high ratio of teachers to children. This ensures that your child’s individual skills are encouraged and specific needs are addressed throughout the curriculum ensuring that all the children reach their Ofsted early learning outcomes.

We produce a developmental file at the end of term for each child, which includes an assessment of their achievements and lots of photographs to show you how well they are doing, and how much fun they are having.

Our activities are carefully planned so that by the time the children are ready to enter primary schools each child has experienced 7 areas of learning and development. 3 Prime Areas are learnt first. These are:

1. Communication and Language
2. Physical Development
3. Personal, Social & Emotional Development

These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:

4. Literacy;
5. Mathematics;
6. Understanding the world; and
7. Expressive arts and design.
