If you are aged 3-4 years, Little Bears Nursery is the place to be. Little Bears Nursery offers children aged 3-4 years a finely tuned, play based curriculum which is personalised to meet each child’s needs. We are a happy, friendly nursery where there is plenty of play and lots of learning through fun. Every day is different and we enjoy making the learning journey for our children as ‘hands on’ and exciting as possible.

Friendly, well qualified nursery staff, including a qualified teacher, work closely with the reception staff, children and wider school team to make sure that our children’s transition into full-time schooling is joyful for all.

Here at Little Bears, we are lucky enough to have a nursery with a large outdoor space which children can access. We have enjoyed planting vegetables in our garden, releasing butterflies that we watched grow from caterpillars and making mud pies in our mud kitchen. As we are outdoors every day, we recommend children bring wellies, coats, sun cream and hats dependent on the weather. We also advise a spare set of clothing as we sometimes have messy play.

Our outdoor learning spaces are interlinked with our Reception class, helping children to make a seamless transition into our school.

Our open door policy means that policies, procedures and information on activities are always available to everyone.

Our session times are from 8:40 am – 11:40 am and 12:20 pm – 15:20 pm. Children can attend five morning sessions, five afternoon sessions or five full days. We spend our day learning through play and purposeful activities. We then encourage children to be independent learners and celebrate their achievements.

Children are able to stay all day 08.40am – 15.20pm. Children can bring their own packed lunch or If your child qualifies for Early Years FSM, they are able to receive a free lunch from the school kitchen or you can choose to purchase a lunch for £2.40 per day.

Your child can start when they are three years old. The nursery funding for early education is available and your child becomes eligible for the free funding the term after their third birthday. If your child is not eligible for funding, fees are kept as low as possible.

We recommend parents and children come to visit the nursery before they start so they can become familiar with the environment and so that any questions can be asked prior to your child starting the nursery.
