Ashwood Logo  Welcome to Little Owls Nursery

Little Owls Nursery is a 39 place nursery, that offers 15-hour places to children aged 3-4 years. Children start with us the half term after their third birthday. We offer lots of transition opportunities and visits to our nursery, including home visits, parent and child play sessions and a toddler group. Nursery is open from 8.30am until 11.30am. Our toddler group runs every Tuesday morning 9am—11am in the Key Stage One hall.

The children learn through a mixture of child-initiated learning and adult led planning. During child-initiated learning, the children choose what activities they would like to explore, this can be inside and outside. We work towards the Early Years curriculum and each child will receive a Learning Journey, where we record observations, photographs and assessments. We have an excellent indoor learning environment as well as a wealth of outdoor areas, resources and space to access. The Early Years curriculum includes the following areas: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design.

Transition

The Nursery and school work closely to ensure that learning and transition into full-time school are as successful as possible. The term before each child starts school, a wide range of transition activities and sessions are provided in order to ensure that children are ready and best informed to start school.
