All Saints Nursery

In 2019 All Saints opened it's Nursery and Preschool provision.  Based at the church the Nursery classroom boasts superb indoor and outdoor facilities.  The nursery class enjoy a variety of activities which stimulate learning to ensure our children have a great start to their educational journey through primary school.  We have designed a curriculum which focuses on the development of key skills which prepare children to be school ready.  We have decided on a low tech approach.  There are no computers or interactive whiteboards as we focus on language and communication skills and resources are carefully selected to develop gross and fine motor skills.
