At Moorlands we are committed to providing a high quality service for the children and parents where care and education go hand in hand. We believe children will only realise their true ability in a happy, relaxed, safe and secure environment.

The nursery is divided into three age groups, the Butterflies (under 2 years), the Ladybirds (2-3 years) and the Bumblebees (3-5 years). However, we value children as individuals and children move rooms with developmental progress rather than being a specific age.

The staff are passionate about early development and key workers work closely with each child to ensure the primary area's of learning are carefully planned for and tailor made for them.

We provide opportunities to be active learners and to think critically to achieve whilst encouraging children to gain independence and confidence in the choices they make. They access our safe and secure outdoor area throughout the day.

Holiday Club

For our Holiday club we work in partnership with the local schools to build on the experiences & topics they are currently covering, extending your child’s learning. We aim to enable all children in our care to enjoy their time with us, as a result of this all the activities/outings/equipment & experiences are child-led with our children being consulted about their aims & wishes for our holiday club provision.

The children will have access to a computer, giving them opportunity to develop their ICT skills. We have a stimulating creative area with an extensive choice of materials. There is a role play area, board games, construction area, pool table, play station, and much more. Children also have the opportunity to read or complete their homework in the quiet area.

We believe that working in partnership with the parents and providing a safe secure and stimulating environment that all the children will be happy and have a great chance of achieving their potential.
