Through free play, formal learning and great outdoor experiences, we encourage creativity, curiosity, confidence and fun – as well as a lifelong love for learning and exploring. Our core programme is supplemented by a range of exciting and dynamic extra-curricular activities that are led by specialist teachers including swimming, Forest School and dance.
Westonbirt Nursery welcomes children from 2 years through to pre-school. The Nursery is a vibrant and positive setting where the happiness of the children is our priority. The location allows for extensive use of our wonderful outdoor space and exploring nature and the wider world is a large part of the Westonbirt experience.
Children learn primarily through play and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum; they begin to build their understanding of numbers, sounds and language with daily sessions that build through their time with us from 2 years old to the preparation for transition to school phase. This phase focuses on giving the children an opportunity to develop independence and confidence, as well as key skills such as writing, holding cutlery, getting themselves changed and following routines and expectations.
The school aims of Curiosity, Creativity and Courage are prevalent in all that happens in Nursery and this stands children in good stead to move on in their educational journey.
