About Our Nursery
Littleham CE Primary School Foundation Stage Unit offers term time education for children 2-5 years old. At Littleham CE Primary school our Early Years' education is designed to be creative, inspiring, challenging, memorable and most of all nurturing. We believe that it is vital to support children’s personal, social and emotional development so that they feel safe and secure and therefore are ready to learn. Encompassed with our whole school vision ‘living life in all its fullness’, we want children to know that they all have gifts to offer others. We support and encourage positive behaviours whilst striving for our children to become independent, confident, life-long learners with a strong belief in their own ability to succeed.
Our foundation stage unit provides age appropriate activities, centred around the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and has a strong emphasis on free play and hands on learning. We offer child led and adult initiated activities and continuous provision time. This facilitates children to gain the skills, knowledge and understanding needed as they start out on their learning journey, supporting them to progress from their individual starting points whilst developing essential characteristics of learning such as problem solving, risk taking, having a go and developing resilience.
Our experienced teaching team ensures that all children are happy and stimulated, inspired and engaged in a wide range of learning experiences that build on their own interests and develop their knowledge and experience of the world around them. All children will come to us with unique starting points and we aim to create a nurturing environment in order to work from these, providing an education that supports the whole child and their family. We always have your child’s best interest at heart and offer a warm, caring and safe environment to grow, learn and develop their own unique personalities.
Working closely with parents is key to success for our children. We understand that starting school is a very important milestone in any child’s life and we aim to make the transition as smooth as possible. We believe very much in working with parents and carers, and you are always welcome to pop in and discuss your needs or concerns.
We are open every day of the school term and children from the age of 2 are very welcome. If you are interested in paying us a visit to see the provision we offer or to book in a stay and play, please telephone Littleham CE Primary School on 01395 266535.
