Riverside Nursery offers places for 3-5 year olds and is situated in Riverside school. We are an early years unit and work closely with the Foundation stage children which enables the older children to become good role-models for the younger children and allows different learning opportunities for all abilities.
The Early Years unit includes 3 classrooms and a nursery which includes 2 smaller rooms, a creative area and an excellent outside facility.
At Riverside we believe that children learn best when they are healthy, safe and secure and by being actively involved in their learning, through first hand experiences and their senses. We believe that children thrive when they have positive relationships with the adults caring for them and when their individual needs are met. We believe that play underpins all development and learning for young children. We firmly believe that if a child is excited and motivated by learning, especially in the early days at our school, then we are already helping that child to become a lifelong learner.
