What we do

No two days are ever exactly the same at Saffron Walden Nursery School. We plan our activities to meet the children’s ever changing needs and encourage the children to make their own choices of activity.

The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework underlines our discovery based approach and ensures that, whether they are inside or outside, each individual child is challenged and stimulated.

Early Years Foundation Stage

At our nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. The Early Years Foundation Stage is a play led curriculum for children from birth to five years of age, and covers seven areas.  Within these areas there are 3 Prime Areas and 4 Specific Areas.  The prime areas are a base in order to be able to cover the other specific areas.

The first few days

We want your child to feel happy and safe with us. Your child’s key person will work with you to create a settling process tailored to your child. We offer home visits to all of our families where possible, this is a wonderful opportunity for your child’s key person to come to your home and meet you and your child in familiar surroundings.
