At Victoria Road we offer high-quality nursery and Pre-school education. We are a happy and caring provision that caters for children from two to four years of age.
The Nursery is the first stage of the of education for children aged 2 years old. The next phase is the Pre-school for children aged 3 and 4 years old. Sessions are overseen and led by a qualified Teacher, supported by an Early Years trained HLTA and Teaching Assistants. We have a lovely light, bright and airy space, with plenty of room for all our children.
The children have access to a secure outdoor area which they are able to access on a daily basis. We are also able to utilise school facilities such as the school hall and the Library.
The EYFS, which includes both the Nursery and Reception classes, work closely together to prepare the children for an excellent start to school.
Victoria Road Nursery caters for children aged 2-4 years, and is located within the grounds of Victoria Road Primary School.
We have a large integrated room which caters to the different age groups and individual developmental needs. We also have a small room which is used for short group times and quiet activities. Victoria Road Nursery is equipped to provide areas for specific use; an area for sand, water & messy play, quiet areas for reading, puzzles & games, activities for intellectually developing the child, a large spacious area for role play, construction activities & floor games.
We have a large play area outside, featuring a mud kitchen, play house, tunnel and much more, for the children to explore.
All the activities we provide at Victoria Road Nursery are structured around the seven areas of the EYFS. (Early Years Foundation Stage). A copy of our curriculum map can be found on our class page.
Each child will have their own online learning journal on ‘Tapestry’ which documents their learning experiences, and is shared regularly with you, providing a base for discussing their ‘next steps’.
