We offer the opportunity each week for the children to enjoy some extra activities alongside their nursery day. These include Ballet, French, Yoga-Chi, Music and Swimming and are term time only classes which are provided by outside teachers who charge additionally. At the beginning of each term children have the opportunity to sign-up for the class for the term and enjoy some additional learning. Our music sessions are ran in-house each Thursday for a small cost of 50p per week.
We have a good partnership with Bushy Leaze Children’s centre providing them with Creche facility cover on occasion and work with them in supporting families. Bushy Leaze attend the nursery to hold Storytimes each term for our children and we use bushy leaze to offer outreach support to any of our children who have additional needs.
We organise visits to Brendon Care Elderly home to visit the residents twice a month and socialise with them, brightening their day.
