At Springfield Primary Academy Nursery we aim to provide a happy, secure, friendly and stimulating environment where children learn and have fun together supported by our professional and enthusiastic Nursery team. 

As a nursery we aim to  

  • Develop a partnership with parents/carers, enabling children to learn at home and at nursery.  
  • Provide an environment which encourages children to talk, to listen and to share with adults and children. 
  • Provide a range of activities, which enables children to discuss, think, question and learn.  
  • Provide opportunities for parents/carers to share the progress and achievements of their child, to contribute to our observations and assessments of their child and therefore support our planning.  
  • Follow the principles of “The Early Years Foundation Stage” within all aspects of our practice.  
  • Interact with children so they gain knowledge and understanding of the world, of themselves and of others, whilst building a foundation for lifelong learning.  
  • Provide an environment, which is welcoming, safe and stimulating, where children enjoy themselves, grow in confidence and fulfil their potential.
