Our setting welcomes families and children of all abilities and encourages access to all activities of the Foundation Stage. Parents of children with Special (Educational) Needs will be able to work with the Nursery SEN Co-ordinator (SENCO) and outside agencies to enhance their child's learning.
We believe that children and adults flourish best in an ordered environment in which everyone knows what is expected of them and children are free to develop their play and learning without fear of being hurt or hindered by anyone else. We aim to work towards a situation in which children can develop self-discipline in an atmosphere of mutual respect and encouragement.
Education and Care Standards Inspections In July 2020 we are proud to acknowledge that the Ofsted inspection report recognised the Nursery as being "good" in all areas of education and care. This report can be found and printed from the Ofsted website at www.ofsted.gov.uk (Ofsted Certificate No: EY241036) search on "Lovel End Nursery".
The nursery recognises parents as the first and most important educators of their young children - research shows that children learn better when their parents are involved. We value parental support and welcome you to take part in activities carried out at nursery, eg during sessions, on visits to the library, sports day, concerts, etc.
Due to a number of regulations, siblings may not attend parent helper sessions.
Our Pre-school Nursery Policies
We have a number of policies relating to the running of the nursery, all of which can be found in the Nursery and are available on request. We ask that all children attend a minimum of three sessions (3hrs each) across three different days.
We are registered as a charity
