Our Leicester Central nursery in Leicester, 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, a toddler room, and a pre-school. 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 as well as a sensory area.
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 Leicester Central 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.
3 months to 2 years
Set in a large room supporting all the age ranges, so babies can learn and develop in their own environment.
We are flexible with our approach, and depending on confidence and ability of some of our babies, they are able to move up to the toddler room sooner.
2 to 3 years
We encourage children to learn through play with dedicated learning opportunities.
We use a curiosity approach to encourage the children and aim to minimise the use of plastic and focus on natural resources.
3 to 5 years
In pre-school, children begin getting ready for school with our school readiness programme.
We encourage our children to be independent and teach them every-day social skills such as sharing and listening and work with each child.
Our outdoor areas provide a stimulating outdoor learning environment for our children to explore.
We offer two outside areas, one for children under 2 years old and one for 2-5-year olds.
