About our Leighton Buzzard nursery
Our Leighton Buzzard nursery is a small and friendly nursery and pre-school with a capacity of 34. We are located near the town centre and a local primary school. Our homely nursery is calm and quiet with a family, home-from-home feel. We cater for babies from 3 months up to children of school age.
All our rooms focus on building up our children’s interest and curiosity by providing them with open-ended resources to stimulate their imagination through play.
We follow the child’s routine when they start coming to our nursery to make the transition easier and aim to build strong relationships with our parents. We work on settling in the children to our nursery on an individual needs’ basis. We have long-standing parents who come back to us for all their childcare needs as well as a long-serving team.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which supports all areas of development for children from birth to school age. Each child is allocated a key person and they monitor each child’s individual progress and plan key activities to support development in all areas of their learning.
We use an online learning journal to capture your child’s activities and can share this with you as often as you like. We also encourage our parents to utilise this for activities carried out at the weekend, like a visit to the seaside or park etc.
Our cosy baby den is dedicated to the requirements of babies from 3 months to 2 years. When babies join our Leighton Buzzard nursery we aim to follow their routine to help them settle into the nursery.
Our main room utilises a neighbourly picket-fence to separate our toddler area (for our children aged between 2-3 years old) and the pre-school. Our toddler area has been designed with inquisitive toddlers in mind.
In the pre-school we follow a school readiness programme, which involves encouraging our children to be independent and teaching them every day social skills such as sharing and listening. We work with each child, so they are able to follow instructions, build friendships, help others, work together and build upon their own confidence.
Our outdoor area is compact and provides an ever-changing outdoor learning environment for our children. We also provide free-flow access to our outside area, which means our children can access this area whenever they would like to be outside.
