Founded in 1943, Drayton House Nursery School joined the Family First Nursery Group in May 2022.
The nursery aims to ensure that each child feels safe, welcomed, and respected as an individual. As children grow, we encourage them towards making the most of their interests and talents, and to develop their independence.
Our classes at Drayton House begin with our 7 month olds who join our Day Nursery, and finish with Forms 3 and 4 for our 4 – 5 year olds. Each class focuses on a particular age and stage, while also taking into account the different needs of individual children in the class.
Our curriculum is based upon the fundamental learning requirements outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) goals provided by OFSTED, and includes the seven key learning areas of:
- Communication and language
- Physical development
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
We aim to show children that learning is an exciting experience and can be fun. The Family First philosophy of ‘Nurture, Care, Inspire’ is represented at Drayton House Nursery School, and through the delivery of the EYFS and Family First curriculum.
Our nursery spaces are carefully designed to provide children with a variety of play and learning choices. Our team ensures children are challenged throughout the day, this may be our babies crawling to meet new friends, counting steps on the stairs, simple phrases in different languages or becoming a doctor at role play.
Each day at nursery is different and every child is encouraged and nurtured to develop at their own pace to reach their full potential
Teaching children at a young age the value of care and respect for others is vital. At nursery children can make new friends and form social bonds with their peers outside of the home. We promote share and care values, taking turns and role model behaviour.
We feel very strongly that children should respect one another and understand both their differences and similarities. We encourage children to express their feelings positively and begin to understand the opinions of others through discussion with their peers and by the examples set by our trained practitioners.
The world is full of questions and interests. Our nurseries are designed to be the same; we ensure a variety of activities are on offer to stimulate inquisitive minds and our caring practitioners are on hand to guide them.
We have worked very hard to create and continue to invest in both indoor and outdoor environments that provide children with the opportunities to safely explore and investigate. From mud kitchens to vegetable gardens, inspiring young minds to learn how things work, grow, and evolve through play.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you into our family.
