Our Wing nursery and pre-school is warm and friendly surrounded by beautiful fields and a large outdoor space. It is conveniently located within the grounds of the Overstone School and adjacent to the children’s centre. Our nursery is situated near a farm and we are sometimes able to see cows, sheep, and horses.
As we are based in a village, we regularly take our children on walks through the village or go to the nearby park for snacks. Although we are in a rural location, we are close to a few towns; Aylesbury, Leighton Buzzard and Wingrave.
Our Wing nursery caters for babies from 3 months to children of school age. We have three rooms, a baby den, a toddler room, and our pre-school. Each of our rooms has access to our outside areas and our pre-school children have their own garden. Every child has a key person that will monitor their development and do regular assessments. Observations are uploaded onto an online learning journal each week; this allows our parents to see what their child has been up to. We pride ourselves on building strong relationships with our parents, and work on settling in the children to our nursery on an individual needs’ basis.
In all three of our rooms we use a curiosity approach to support children with their education, social skills, and preparation for school. Being a curiosity nursery, the aim is to minimise the use of plastic and focus on natural resources and real-life objects.
Children learn best from real experiences and can gain a greater understanding of weight, shape and space. We encourage our children to use their imagination when they are playing with the resources as this develops their play.
We are also lucky enough to have a chef on-site who prepares all our fresh and healthy snacks and lunches every day. All the food provided is included within the nursery fee.
