At St. Joseph’s we strive to provide a safe, caring, happy and stimulating nursery environment where children can begin their learning journey.  We value the uniqueness of each child and provide a supportive and secure framework where children can flourish at their own pace and in their own individual way – both academically and socially.  We know that children learn best when home and school work closely together and also value our strong partnership with families ensuring that every child’s needs are understood and catered for.

We offer a broad and balance curriculum for children, which is based upon the Early Learning Goals and the seven areas of learning.  All of our children are given equal access and opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills.

Some of the curriculum is taught through adult led directed tasks.  Children, however also learn through play and enjoyment and child initiated opportunities are offered both indoors and outside.  Whenever possible we try to follow the interest of the children.

If you ever have any questions or queries please ask one of our dedicated nursery staff.  Your child is our priority and we will do our best to help and support families at all times.
