Balsall Common branch is conveniently located on the Primary School site. The branch, judged by inspectors as Outstanding, was established in 1989. The nursery, directed by a qualified teacher, is open from 7.30 -6.00, all year round and offers high quality full and part-time early education places in a caring, homely atmosphere. It is based in a self-contained classroom building, with an enabling and nurturing indoor environment. Children spend plenty of time outdoors, accessing the school playing fields, and the nursey has a secure areas to the rear, with opportunities for learning across the curriculum. The front of the nursery is a natural place for exploring the environment, drawing on the forest school approach.
Each child has a key person who will plan and provide a range of activities to help them learn, develop and reach their potential. The nursery works in close partnership with parents and meets all national requirements. The nursery follows the national Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Guidance and is registered for funding for eligible two-, three- and four-year-olds. Children have access to a number of facilities, including an adventure playground, forest school and library. Staff work closely with the local authority nursery and school reception teachers, to ensure seamless transitions.
Before and after school provision is available to children in school reception class. The branch works closely with the nearby Pathways Nurseries at Holly Lane and Barston. Holiday clubs are available for primary school children, at Lady Katherine Leveson School.
