Nursery Practitioners

Our Nursery Practitioners are the backbone of the nursery. As well as the Room Leaders, they are the ones who get to know the children as individuals, encourage them, play with them, and listen to them. Nursery Practitioners celebrate with children when they learn something new, answer all the questions their curious little minds can think of, and give them a hug if they’re having a bad day. The team are very loving, attentive and are all dedicated to all aspects of your child’s needs, learning and development and are available to discuss your child’s progress and personal needs at any time during the day.

Your child’s progress will be recorded and monitored through observations, linked to the Early Years Foundation Document. (EYFS)
