At Little Grange Nursery we encourage learning through play.

We follow the Government’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework which sets the standards for learning, development, and care for children from birth up to 5 years of age, and activities are designed to meet the differing needs of every individual child.

Little Grange will be open 51 weeks per year, closing for bank holidays, one week at Christmas and 3 staff training days.

Our opening times are 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday. A pre-booked Breakfast Club service is also available from 7.30am.

We ask all of our children to do a minimum of 6 sessions per week (a session is a half day).

Little Grange accepts children from 6 months up to 5 years old.


Prime / Specific Areas of Learning

There are three prime areas of learning in which our Early Years professionals support children to learn and develop. These are:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication and  language
  • Physical development

Plus four specific areas of learning.  These are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Key Person

Each child has their own ‘Key Person’.

This is the staff member who will have the greatest responsibility for providing the care, nurture and learning for your child. They are your key point of contact and you will drop off and collect your children from their Key Person whenever possible.

Throughout your child’s time with us, we build a Learning Journey of their progress and achievements, through observations of their play and interactions. This journal is available for parents to view at any point and observations will be shared with Parents on a regular basis. Parents are also encouraged to share with us the learning that happens at home.
