Our Bricket Wood nursery in St Albans, is a cosy setting with a warm, caring and friendly atmosphere. The areas within our nursery are dedicated areas for the different age ranges to ensure we offer appropriate learning and experiences tailored to that age. We have a cosy baby room, and a 2-5 age pre-school room. All the rooms within our nursery and the outside areas build up on the children’s interests and aim to stimulate their curiosity. We are also very lucky to have a fantastic garden area for our children.
Our children are served seasonal, healthy lunches and snacks daily and we can cater for any dietary requirements as well as support the weaning process for babies.
At our nursery in Bricket Wood we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, supporting all areas of your child’s development from three months until they are ready to go to school. Our early years practitioners monitor each child’s progress and plan a variety of enrichment experiences to support individual development in all areas of learning.
Our Baby room caters for babies from 6 months, as they learn to explore and understand the world around them. We have lots of activities for them to learn through play.
We also offer a separate sleep room so our babies can have a quiet nap when needed.
Our pre school room is designed for children over 2 years until they are ready to start school. We use a curiosity approach to support children with their education, social skills, and preparation for school.
We use a curiosity approach to encourage the children and aim to minimise the use of plastic and focus on natural resources.
We have a large beautiful outside space with a range of soft surfaces, a small woodland, and a mud kitchen.
We have access to a large field where the children take part in a range of outdoor activities such as bug hunting, Easter egg hunts and sports days.
This includes a mud kitchen and a construction area for our children.
