Nursery Life

Meet the Team

A Day in the Life

On opening the door, your child will receive a warm individual welcome from our happy, friendly team, which we believe creates an enthusiasm for the day ahead.

Topics and activities change according to the time of year, but there is a daily routine of learning from the Early Years framework consisting of seven areas of focus:

Personal, Social and Emotional Development;
Physical Development;
Communication and Language;
Understanding the World;
Expressive Arts and Design.

A day in Little Lambs Nursery may look like this:

8.15am – Welcome and registration
9.00am – Yoga session
9.45am – Snack time
10.30am – Numeracy lesson
12.00pm – Lunch
1.30pm – Music lesson
2.00pm – Playtime and snacks
3.00pm – Mud Kitchen
3.45pm – Arts and Crafts
4.30pm – Playtime
5.20pm – Tea
5.45pm – Pick-up

It is a busy, happy environment where children are stimulated. There are many experiences and activities planned throughout the day, from learning a new letter to going on a long walk in the orchards.

We are lucky enough to have our very own Forest School on-site where children can immerse themselves in our natural surroundings and exercise their imaginations. Our extensive gardens and grounds provide endless opportunities for activities outside in the fresh air and we have ample outdoor toys for the Nursery children to enjoy, including sandpits, water-play equipment and adventure playground.

Our children also benefit from ‘Library Time’, where they can choose their own book to read. Visits to our on-site animals are a regular highlight for our Nursery pupils.

Our Ethos and Values

A community where each cares for all and individuality is cherished.

The Nursery’s greatest strength is the sense of community that exists. This is as a result of the relationships we foster between staff, pupils and their families.

By maintaining this triangle of communication between the Nursery, the pupil and the parents, we are, collectively, able to achieve so much more for the children and to support them in realising, or even exceeding, their potential.

Our Vision

To enable the young people in our Nursery to develop important social, personal and academic skills through play with their peers and interaction with our well-qualified staff.

Through membership of our community and the opportunities that the Nursery provides, our children will develop into confident and caring young people, who possess a love of learning and a strong set of values reflecting our principles as a Christian Foundation.

Our Location

Located in the picturesque village of Chart Sutton, with a sweeping tree-lined driveway and acres of green space, you will feel the magic the moment you arrive.

Children benefit from our beautiful, rural setting that provides copious opportunities for your child to learn, play and grow, both outdoors as well as within our well-equipped and spacious classrooms.
