Welcome to The Old Rectory Nursery! We want your child to feel comfortable and welcome in our setting! Our goal is to provide the highest quality of care for your child and our child care policies and procedures will give you an insight into your child’s day and let you know what we do to provide this. A child’s first introduction to early years learning is an important stepping stone. Our aim is to make this step as happy and as rewarding an experience as possible, helping each child to develop confidence, self-esteem, independence, concentration, social skills and self-discipline.
The more we know about you and your child and the more you know about us, we can create a better partnership to fully support your child.
“A real professional and loving nursery with a real feel of the countryside. There is a real playful atmosphere and the children always seem comfortable in their surroundings. My nephew really enjoys playtime with the chickens! Miss Libby is professional and always willing to please. Nothing is ever too much. Beautiful nursery which I recommend to all of my friends!”
At The Old Rectory Nursery is to introduce your child to the early Montessori practical life and sensorial equipment in a homely and happy atmosphere. We work with a small ratio of teacher to children, which allows the children to have a gentle and kind introduction to the Montessori Method of Teaching.
We have created a room with some early Montessori exercises alongside conventional play equipment designed for this age group and a place where the children are free to learn to play, to discover and grow. The children are cared for by qualified, loving, calm members of staff with experience of small children.
