All About Greenfields Nursery

Our Ethos 
When Greenfields originally opened its doors, the nursery was very much based on using the Montessori method of teaching.

However, over the years, Lesley and the team has recognised the need to adapt this technique to incorporate the modern day teaching expectations of a nursery school.They are constantly updating & adding to the curriculum ensuring a safe, stimulating & caring environment, where physical, emotional & social skills can all be developed.

Outdoor play is a vital part of Greenfields philosophy, & the nursery is fortunate enough to have 3 safe & secure play areas, one being recently totally refurbished to include a trickling stream, jungle hut with rope bridges, a play house with curtains & window boxes, as well as sand pit & sensory play equipment.

The children will soon also benefit from access to a new outdoor learning area, including a tree house and mud kitchen & the continued use of an entire rugby pitch for larger outdoor play activities.

Outstanding’ says Ofsted
We’ve recently had an Ofsted visit, & are delighted with their report. Ofsted said ‘The partnership with parents is outstanding. Children are very happy & flourish due to the exceptionally strong, open relationship between parents & staff.’

‘Children develop very well, have lots of fun & learn within the caring environment of the nursery, as they enjoy the wide range of activities offered.’

Our Staff 
All of the staff at Greenfields have been with us for several years.

We appreciate that this continuity will benefit the children, helping them build a trusting relationship which in turn will lead to a happier more confident child.

Parents & carers are outwardly encouraged to share in their children’s care & learning, developing a true partnership where parents & children feel valued & respected.

Each child is assigned a ‘key worker’, so that individual ‘likes & dislikes’ can be recognised & understood, assuring the transition from home to nursery is as smooth as possible.

All of the staff at Greenfields are qualified ‘First Aiders.’
