Nursery Curriculum

At Shining Stars Nursery we provide exceptional early years education and childcare for children aged 2 – 4 years of age. We have our Little Stars group for our youngest children and our Big Stars group for our rising 4 year olds. The children in both of our Nursery groups benefit from our extensive curriculum based in our light, airy and spacious well-resourced nursery building. In addition they have the freedom to learn outdoors on a daily basis choosing from a variety of child focussed areas and activities in our extensive outdoor spaces. The classrooms are all on one level, providing full accessibility to all rooms. They are truly engaging spaces which really do facilitate the very best in early years education and care.

The Nursery curriculum is planned around a whole school thematic approach, alongside children’s interests and needs, with high quality texts at the core. Some of our recent learning journeys include ‘Into the Woods’, ‘On the Move’ and ‘Splish, splash, splosh’! Our indoor and outdoor spaces are designed to reflect our termly learning journey and create the WOW factor to encourage curiosity and excitement about the learning to come. Our Nursery day interweaves a range of learning experiences including indoor and outdoor Discovery times, time for child initiated play with high quality continuous provision at the point of play and large and small group adult led learning.

As we are fortunate enough to have our nursery grounds within our infant school, we are able to offer an abundance of outdoor experiences and opportunities for our youngest pupils. These include participation in many of forest school type ‘Nature Explorer’ sessions; a fully stocked mud kitchen in the large dedicated Nursery outdoor learning area; regular jaunts to the nursery allotment area with the opportunity for the children to participate in seed sowing and watching their plants grow as well as regular visits to our very own Wallace Fields Infant School & Nursery chickens, with the added bonus of collecting eggs!
