Welcome to Nursery!

The first stage in your childs’ Early Years Education
Welcome to the Nursery page. Here you will find information about what we do in nursery and ways you can help at home.

In the nursery a strong emphasis is placed on children building relationships with other children and adults that work with them.  This significantly impacts on their ability and motivation to learn.  If they feel secure in their environment, then they are more motivated.

We observe the children to find out what their interests are and then plan activities that relate to these interests, taking into account some of their next steps in learning.

Much of the children’s time is spent accessing activities and resources of their choice, but each day a teacher focused activity is planned for the children.


When children leave nursery they have had a wide range of experiences and are ready to continue their learning journey in reception.  We hope your child enjoys their time at St John’s Nursery.
