Our Southam nursery is inviting and warm with a home from home feel. 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 Southam 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.
