Here at Chestnut Avenue our activities are based around the teaching practices set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS, 2017) curriculum. We cover each of the seven areas of learning - this allows our children to access a wide range of activities that aren’t always possible at home. We have recently introduced a core curriculum that takes influences from a variety of Early Education Pedagogies, for example Forest School and Reggio Emilia, as we are creating a nursery that is using more natural resources, allowing our learning environments to have natural light and using fewer plastic toys. Our curriculum and philosophy weaves into the EYFS as it allows our children to play and explore, be active learners and develop critical thinking.

Our Location

The nursery is within a 5-10 minute walk from both of these stations. There are a number of bus routes that also stop in the vicinity of the nursery (see below). The nursery is opposite a large park, which makes for a pleasant, quiet, open space environment. This could be the ideal nursery for you and your child - please take a look at the map, or use our 'Find Nearest Nursery' filter, to check out its location.

I am based in the baby room with an EYP. I have been working with children for over 6 years and I enjoy every moment of it. I look forward to being with these little ones knowing that my contribution in establishing a good foundation for them now, will have a positive impact in their future. They bring out the child in me: the reason for my youthful looks and I would not trade this in for anything in the world.
