Our Nursery

It is our aim at Southwood Primary School Nursery to ensure that every child develops a lively and enquiring mind, feels happy and secure, and fulfils his or her full potential in every aspects of personal development and the Early Years Curriculum.


We have dedicated, highly qualified and experienced members of staff, led by a highly experienced and qualified teacher, who provide a well-resourced, stimulating environment that meet the needs of all of our three and four year olds. We endeavour to provide children with the opportunities to become independent and aim to foster, in every child, a positive self-motivating attitude towards learning. 


Children are given the opportunity to select and choose activities for themselves whilst our enthusiastic adults give guidance and direction to allow and facilitate learning. The early stages of your child’s school career is carefully monitored and observed, this is then used to inform planning and ensure that all interests are developed as well as being documented through a series of photos and observations which are then put together in your child’s ‘Learning Journey’ to show their successes.


We know that our approach to early education gives lasting benefits to all our children and it lays a secure foundation for the rest of their education. Our staff thoroughly enjoy seeing the children grow and watching them become inquisitive and independent learners which is something we hope continues throughout their education.
