Welcome to Badgers.

Our badgers room is for our eldest children who spend a year within the room in preperation for their transition to primary school. As with the other rooms in the nursery the badgers educators have a non-presciptive approach to learning, where children learn how to think and not what to think. Our environment is based on the necessity of learning through play.

Badgers have their very own optional polo shirts. This encourages children to look after their uniform and get used to wearing one before they leave for school. Our children are very proud of their shirts and we have noticed a positive effect on all areas of their nursery life especially in their personal, social and emotional development boosting their self-confidence and self-awareness as well as having a positive effect on their behaviour.

When getting ready to move to school we work closely alongside parents and children to ensure their transition is smooth. We will complete a 'transition record' with you that will give their new teacher more of an insight and understanding of your child. In the badgers room we focus on all the 'pre-school' skills children will need when transitioning onto their chosen schools. We feed into a number of schools within the local area. We also host our greatly anticipated 'Graduation Party' that all parents, staff and children are invited to. We celebrate each child's time with us and give them their leaving gifts and 'Graduation Certificates' with all their parents/families there too. Children choose their graduation theme which previously we have had 'Beach Party' and 'Disney Party.'
