Welcome to our nursery here at Green Lane Nursery and Childcare Centre.
We provide outstanding childcare staffed by dedicated passionate and highly qualified practitioners who provide a safe, calm and nurturing, home to home environment ‘Where every child shines’.
We focus on the well-being of children and staff by providing opportunities and environments that stimulate curiosity. We continuously reflect on our teaching and environment so that we cater for every child. Observations are key to identifying and providing the tools to further a child’s interest so that they continue to be curious.
We have introduced various items of curiosity to capture the children’s interest and imagination. We are working towards making the children’s experiences as real as possible, replacing the traditional plastic toys with ceramics, breakables and artefacts which encourage risk taking and a deep understanding of respect for resources. A child loves to mimic and replicate the actions of significant people around them, yet we give them miniature, child sized replicas of the real thing. Plastic toys and resources sadly offer no consequences; they can be dropped, thrown without any repercussion. We need to teach children skills for life, how to negotiate problems and manage risks.
We encourage the children to be independent by allowing them to put on their own outdoor wear on, pour their own drinks and prepare their own snacks under close supervision. Independence is an essential life skill and one that needs to be nurtured from an early age.
We offer flexible childcare for children up to the age of twelve years old and work very closely with Green Lane Church of England Controlled Primary School to ensure a smooth transition into school.
