Riverside Nursery was formed and built in 2007 to provide leading day nursery care for children from 3 months to 5 years. The main aim of the nursery is to create a secure environment where the children can gain a foundation in education and social skills, preparing them for primary school.
Staff are fully trained with the relevant qualifications in care, child welfare and health & safety. All our staff are qualified to level 3 or above.
Learning in these tender years is done primarily by sight, sound and interaction. Our nursery has large rooms which can all be easily adapted to suit play, learning, building, creativity activities and classroom environments.
We also have a range of ICT equipment in both Upper and Lower Riverside, which can be used by the children to take an early step into IT literacy. We also have a state of the art Tilt and Touch Table designed to mirror the Early Years Stage curriculum which covers numeracy, literacy, creativity, letter formation, music, art and much more. It is also a great teaching tool to encourage children to socialise, learn to take turns, work together, share and communicate.
Within the grounds of the nursery are two large play areas for the children. The older children will enjoy playing on the latest in safety regulated equipment and climbing frame, and the other, which tends to be a favourite with our younger children, has an in built cushion road complete with its own road markings, mini roundabout and zebra crossing where we can learn all about road safety.
We welcome any potential parents and children to visit us personally to see all aspects of the nursery first-hand, there is no need to book an appointment but to get the most out of your visit we advise you come mid morning, or mid afternoon whilst the children are playing.
