About our

Welcome to Pebworth Nursery, situated at the heart of the village on the grounds of Pebworth First School. Our quaint setting offers an intimate atmosphere, complemented by spacious gardens and an open-plan room. We’ve dedicated a separate room for the babies. Nurturing your child’s growth is our priority.

At Pebworth Nursery, we take pride in providing wholesome snacks daily, accommodating various dietary needs. For our youngest members, we offer dedicated support during the weaning process.

Following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, our experienced early years practitioners guide children from three months until they are ready for school. We closely monitor each child’s progress, tailoring enrichment experiences to foster development in all learning areas.

Typical Day

A typical day at nursery would involve lots of time outside – whether it is a walk around the village or making mud pies in our lovely mud kitchen. Children learn best from real experiences of textures, smells etc. and we find the best place to experience all this is the outside.

We sing lots of nursery rhymes, but also have quiet times for reading books as well as free play and structured activities to develop our children’s next steps. We try to make everyday fun and provide lots of opportunities to learn. Activities are planned around our children’s interests so they are engaged and learning along the way.

Outside Area

In our large outside area we have a sensory kitchen, a climbing frame, a planting area and a variety of different outdoor toys and resources.

Once a week, we take the children for a walk outside for a range of exciting Forest School activities. The Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all our children regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.

Our Community

We work in partnership with the community and regularly involve our children with community activities such as carol singing for the retirement home next door each Christmas and visiting the local church. We also post Christmas letters at the local post office each year.
