Welcome to our Nursery, also known as FS1. In our  nursery we learn through hands on, practical experiences and planned play opportunities. We like to provide the children with as many opportunities to explore and experiment as possible within all areas of the setting. We are a very child led setting and like to make sure we follow the children's interests to ensure engagement and enthusiasm for learning.
