Children settle in well at the nursery, quickly bonding with staff and teachers as they begin their learning journey
Eastfield Nursery (Ages 1-3)
Eastfield Nursery provides a home-from-home experience for children aged from 12 months old. Inside, the freshly refurbished nursery provides a welcoming and cosy space for children to thrive. Outside, the child-friendly garden offers a safe place for little ones to explore. The nursery is open all year round. Children can be dropped off from 08:00 in the morning and picked up as late as 18:00 at night. We also offer a breakfast club from 07:30 should parents require additional flexibility. Our online learning journey, Tapestry, provides parents with updates on how their children are developing in all areas of the Early Years Curriculum. The children have a range of activities that stimulate their interest and develop their learning both indoors and outdoors. As well as specialisms, such as music with our Head of Music once a week, we are able to offer ballet for the older children with our specialist dance teacher. The children attend ‘Messy Art’ sessions and also the ‘Mini Movers’ activity, which takes place in our on-site Sports Centre. We also revel in the magnificent grounds that frame our nursery. Eastfields Nursery is a feeder to Fieldgate Nursery at the Pre-Prep which then takes children aged 3 to 4 years. This progression is made as seamless as possible with lots of transition activities built into the term before they move over.
Fieldgate Nursery, situated within Culford Pre-Prep, is light, spacious and boasts its own private garden. It is also a happy and creative nursery, and we work hard to discover and nurture your child’s interests. Being part of Culford School means we can take advantage of the wonderful facilities on offer, including the indoor swimming pool, tennis centre and beautiful parkland. Children settle in well at the nursery, quickly bonding with their teachers as they begin their learning journey. Variety is important to young learners and we make sure that there are lots of different activities on offer. With specialist teachers in music, French and Spanish, ballet, tennis and art, when we say that Culford caters for the individual, we really mean it. In small classes, your child will quickly develop their literacy and numeracy skills in a rich and practical way. Children also learn not only how to express themselves, but also to engage with other children, learning how to take turns and share. Progression into the Reception Class is seamless and the nursery enjoys frequent activities with the older children such as assemblies, plays and joint Early Years activity days. Through our bespoke Stay and Play sessions, we can work with you to make your child feel at home at Culford. Do come and see for yourself what makes our nursery so special.
