3 and 4 year old room

The well qualified and experienced staff at Oaklands provide well planned, innovative and exciting activities centred around the children’s interests and specific needs to move children’s learning forward. A qualified teacher works with all the children and oversees planning and assessment.
We provide a warm, caring environment where children are safe and happy.
The provision is broad and balanced, covering all areas of learning in Early Years Foundation Stage and includes Forest Schools and a very large open plan purpose-built nursery room - we also have a fantastic outdoor area including a mud kitchen, an outdoor classroom, a sand pit and gardening area. Please see our gallery page for pictures of our nursery setting - there is also a link below.
We provide an environment where children develop confidence, independence, self-esteem and a love of learning and we aim to ensure that every child is happy and reaches their full potential.
