As a nursery we would like to help all families to be confident to help their child to learn at home. Over the past few years we have had some amazing feedback from families that have taken part in the many exciting home learning projects and these will continue to be available across all the nurseries. We are now also encouraging you, through this page to get involved with more home learning.

All the nursery practitioners are available if you need any further advice, we are always happy to chat! Look out for our home learning sheets and family learning events which we are hoping to get back up and running in the near future.

We have also added in some links to really useful websites where you will find lots of fun thing to do at home with your child

I hope you find this information useful and we would love your feedback on the things you had fun doing!
