We believe that a child’s interests and questions are key in delivering a happy and safe environment, where children are valued for who they are and believe in themselves. Our programme follows a ‘Reggio Emilia’ inspired approach to learning; a child-centred, play base style, where children are encouraged to develop at their own pace, with activities and opportunities based on their fascinations and interests.

Activities are planned around our children and their curiosities and interests. This, coupled with regular forest schooling provides an engaging and exciting place for a child to play and learn. We also offer learning opportunities for swimming, Spanish and dance, with specialist teachers giving our children a head start at these life skills.

We have two age grouped classes, Goslings and Owls. The Gosling class is for children aged 2-3 whilst the Owls are our preschool-aged pupils. Each group has its own indoor space with open access to our specially designed outside play areas and learning environments.

In the video below our Nursery Manager, Nicky Woodward, will show you around the Nursery, and talk you through what we have to offer.

About our day
Our Day

Forest School

Forest School allows children to explore and learn in a natural environment and assess risk in a safe and familiar setting. By giving our children the opportunity to challenge themselves through play, they develop self-confidence, emotional resilience and a sense of independence.

Facilities

The purpose-built facility occupies a peaceful, wooded area in the grounds of Stamford Junior School. It is accessible from the Cattle Market car park, just a couple of minutes from the Meadows and Stamford train station.

The wealth of facilities – including its own kitchen, a large outdoor play area and garden, two large rooms for the different age groups (which can be opened out into one via a collapsible wall) and ICT equipment – make the nursery the first choice in Stamford for many families.

Facilities

Transition

We work very closely with the reception class teachers at Stamford Junior School. This provides a cohesive Early Years experience, helping those who wish to continue their educational journey at Stamford  transition to ‘big school’.

Don't just take our word for it...

It’s just such an inspiring environment, with extremely caring staff – I leave with complete peace of mind after every drop off.

It’s great to know that Alice has had a healthy meal and plenty of fruit during the day – it makes tea time that bit easier.
