Welcome to Little Owls Nursery
Little Owls is pleasantly situated in the grounds of Broseley C of E Primary School. We operate as a self-contained unit having our own facilities for work and play, but also enjoying the benefits of being part of an educational campus. Your child will be able to observe the daily routine of school life, further easing the transition for nursery to a school of your choice
We are a small non-profit making nursery (Registered Charity No. 1043532. We believe that good care and good early education cannot be separated. Development and learning needs are best met within the security of a warm and simulating environment where trusting relationships have been built. In this supportive atmosphere, children are resourceful and imaginative. When encouraged, they will develop confidence in their own ideas and make them reality.
We believe in maintaining a high staff ratio so that we can give individual attention and support to each child’s learning.
This will encourage the development of self-confidence, independence and enjoyment in learning. In this way he or she will be able to maximise the opportunities later on at primary school. We also encourage children to value each other as individuals. Our policy is to use practices which value differences of gender, race, culture and language.
Little Owls operates the High Scope style of teaching, offering a wide and varied range of activities both within the building and using the extensive space outside. The High Scope approach encourages the child to plan, act and reflect on what he/she does and helps the child to develop self-confidence, independence and a positive attitude to learning. The child has unrestricted access to the nursery’s resources in order to promote this child-led approach.
As well as child-led activities, we also work from ideas using early science and technology. This involves children working on practical experiments where learning takes place from what is happening in front of them. We aim to introduce our children to the wealth of stories, plays and poems that are also used as springboards for further exploration. Early writing and reading skills are encouraged, and are incorporated into the children’s work.
In this way the Nursery seeks to enable the child to meet the Desirable Learning Outcomes during the Foundation Stage, thereby providing the foundation for later achievements.
If you wish to look around the nursery or would like to apply for your child(ren) to attend Little Owls, please contact us to arrange a visit or to send you a prospectus.
