What we get up to....

Your child is our priority. At St James' Nursery we have a wide and varied approach to ensuring your child's sessions are filled with fun, exploration and learning. We promote a philosophy by which children lead the learning.


Forest Fun!

Being set in such a wonderful, leafy, rural location, we have our outdoor learning spaces at the heart of all we do. Be it in the field or playground or adventures through the forest we make full use of the woods, garden area, messy play area and mud kitchen as well as sand and water play. Forest School trained staff ensure the children are making the most of the stimulating environment around them.


Indoor Excitement!

Our classroom environment is designed around meeting the needs, interests and stages of development of each child. We mirror our outdoor spaces inside to create a calm and natural environment where the children are  are purposeful, confident and independent. Our staff cherish the impact they have on each and every child, interacting and teaching them as they play. 


Links With Home

There are plenty of opportunities for parents and carers to get involved with half termly events for families to enjoy such as Harvest celebrations, stay and play sessions and Forest School activities.


Tapestry is our online Early Years Learning Journal. With a secure password, you are able access the photos and written observations that staff take as you follow your child's unique learning journey through the Nursery.


Most important to us is that we deliver excellent early years practice that is tailored to your child. We strive to ensure the absolute best for your child's early development.
