Our very youngest children begin their nursery experience in ‘The Nest’, a specially designed environment for children from 9 months to 2 years of age. When your child has had their ‘Settling in’ sessions, we will allocate a ‘Key Worker’. This staff member will be your first point of contact; they will share information about how your child is settling in and then share ideas and plans for supporting their learning. The needs of this age group are very specific and we were delighted to be able to add ‘The Nest’ to our provision in January 2019; it is a home-from-home, where staff follow the routines and structures that the babies are used to, whilst introducing them to new and exciting experiences. The Nest operates from Laughton Village Hall, next door to the school, and the children befit from being able to go for walks (or buggy rides) in the woods, to the local shop and to the school play area. The Nest is fully equipped for full days with babies, including areas for napping and eating.
