The Grove Nursery has been established since 1960 and is located at All Saints Church Halls in New Haw. We are committed to enhancing the development and education of children under the statutory school age in a safe, secure and stimulating environment. We work within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which ensures equality of opportunity for all children and their families.
At The Grove Nursery children use purposeful play as a means of discovering and exploring the world around them. Children are encouraged to work things out for themselves and to seek help when needed. They learn to take turns, share fairly and co-operate with others. We aim to foster a sense of security and confidence whilst enabling each child to develop and progress without pressure at his or her own pace.
We offer every child in our setting a specially tailored curriculum within the Early Years Foundation Stage educational guidelines. This enables children to progress towards the early learning goals and prepares them for the National Curriculum, which begins at Year 1 in primary school. We are registered with and inspected by OFSTED for our care standards and nursery education. At The Grove we are able to provide individual care and attention because of our high ratio of staff to children. Our children are encouraged to learn through play and experience fun and friendship with their peers and the staff.
