We are officially a curious setting!!  We have passed our accreditation with the Curiosity Approach!

Why Childhaven?

We are a unique and curious setting offering your child a wonderful world of experiences in their earliest years.  We have recently achieved the Curiosity Approach accreditation and are the only setting in the area with this prestigious badge. Please see www.thecuriosityapproach.com.

Children are free to access a whole range of learning opportunities, indoors and out all year round.  We operate on two floors of a unique and beautiful Victorian building, as well as offering a fantastic garden space which the children can access in all weathers.

We have a highly qualified teaching team, including qualified teachers, higher level and advanced teaching assistants.  We have specialisms in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, Speech and Language Development, beach schools, early reading, writing and maths, sensory play, heuristic play, and working with children for whom English is an additional language.

We also offer a range of enhanced activities, including…

Beach schools, food activities, walks and visits, Kathy Seabrook’s fun music, Yoga sessions, Jabadao (developmental movement play), nature club with our resident gardener, music and movement club with the Stephen Joseph Theatre and adults with dementia.

How lovely it has been to have nursery full of love and laughter once again. The children have been AMAZING!!!! We have been blown over with how well they have coped with coming in on their own. A big well done to all of them!

We can’t wait to meet you if you are starting next week...........

Yesterday was our last school day of the year. It has been a funny end for everybody: no parties, transitions to school and long cuddles goodbye to our parents and children.
It has been an absolute pleasure that you have trusted us with your most important people ever during their time here, watching them grow and learn has been wonderful. Thank you.
We all send our thanks and love for all of the kind words, cards and presents that you have delivered for us to share.
Take care, have a fabulous summer and don’t forget to keep us up to date on any new news.
Lots of love and such big cuddles from all of us at Childhaven Nursery School.
