Top of the Class Nursery and Pre-school was first opened in 2010. We are situated in a large converted house on three levels, with a separate two storey building which houses our 2-3 year olds. The main building consists of five play rooms, a sensory room, an I.C.T suite, a separate sleep room for the under two’s, and children’s toilets and changing facilities on every level. We also have a spacious outdoor area, with a variety of equipment that is suitable for all age groups. The Garden also has a large covered sand pit and Sensory Garden to explore.
The Nursery is registered with Ofsted. During our recent inspection in December 2017, we received a “GOOD” rating.LINK
We provide a high level of service for all children at our nursery.
We employ an enthusiastic and qualified team of staff to provide and excellent educational nursery environment that impacts positively on the children and their families.
We have continual liaisons between parents, carers and staff so that mutual goals in both the nursery and family settings are met.
This is achieved by parents, carers and staff working closely together as a team to develop “The Next Steps” for the children, to promote his or her learning and development.
All development plans recognise the child as an individual.
We provide opportunities for all of our children to express their individuality.
We encourage each child to be happy and confident through learning from different indoor and outdoor play activities.
Our nursery will aim to provide a stimulating environment in which each child may develop their communicative and social skills as well their educational ability.
As each child learns differently, we provide the necessary surroundings to take into account a range of abilities and Learning methods.
We provide a wide range of learning and playful experiences to support each child’s development. We create a safe, secure and stimulating environment for all children.
The environment is also flexible to adapt to the change in a child’s needs on a daily basis.
Each child is assigned a Key Person when they commence. The Key Person is then responsible for obtaining observations on the children in their care and then planning activities accordingly.
