Our Nursery Aims

  • To create an atmosphere of encouragement, acceptance and respect where children can grown in confidence and independence
  • To respond sensitively to children's individual needs
  • To value all parents and children and respond sensitively to the beliefs, hopes and fears of families

Learning Through Play

All children learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside. We will provide opportunities for children to develop their imagination and skills through a variety of play and activities, including messy play. Sparrows Church of England Nurseries deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage framework.

We know that a healthy, well balanced diet is essential for a child’s health and development so we promote healthy eating through snack times, providing fresh, good quality food at all of our nurseries.
