Probus Nursery (formerly known as Little Acorns), opened as part of Probus Primary School in September 2009. We are an integral part of the school community working within the framework of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Having established very close links between the settings we work together with the Reception class, sharing expertise and resources.
Our nursery offers an exciting and vibrant learning environment with a positive ethos and a warm family atmosphere that welcomes both children and their parents. We have well-qualified, experienced, caring staff who enable us to provide the very best in pre-school nursery education. The children are continually encouraged to explore new experiences, discuss and develop their interests and celebrate their wonderful ideas and cultural backgrounds.
We are very lucky to operate within the grounds of the main school, in our own building. We have access to all the main school equipment, including the playground equipment, fields, garden, hall for PE and computer suite. Probus Nursery provides places for up to 30 children per day and operates sessions every morning and afternoon with a Lunch Club available from 12 noon-12.30pm for children aged 2.5 years and over.
Please note our wraparound care – Breakfast Club & After School Club - is available to children aged 3 years plus if already in receipt of 3/4 year old funding.
We were awarded 'Outstanding' by OFSTED in our May 2014 inspection with comments such as "Staff provide an exceptionally welcoming environment...", "The quality of teaching is exceptionally good..." and "the children are exceptionally well behaved, helpful, kind and considerate to others".
Probus Nursery is part of Probus Primary School and we are guided by the main school policies and procedures.
