Early Years Educator
Atherstone Nursery School is a LA Maintained Nursery School, with over 100 children on roll. We have 2-3 year old and 3-4 year old nursery environments. We have been consistently successful - our Ofsted inspection in January 2019 recognised us as an Outstanding again and commented "Children are happy to come to school because they are excited by their learning and because they have excellent relationships with the adults they work with. The attractive learning environment is vibrant, and it is organised to promote children’s independence, with plenty of opportunities for investigation and exploration. Adults provide the stimulus and the resources for children to be as creative as possible through the provision of open-ended activities that allow children to express themselves, for example through role play, story-telling and painting. Visual timetables are used to support children with their learning. Excellent use is made of the outdoor environment to ensure that children develop a secure understanding of the world around them."
