Moorlands Nursery

Children here benefit from use of the school’s grounds as well as the Forest School area and newly extended outdoor play area, so they have plenty of opportunities for outdoor learning, exploration and play in the natural world. We provide plenty of natural resources and equipment encouraging inquisitive thinking and putting children at the centre of their learning.


The nursery offers 27 places to children aged from 6 weeks to 5 years and is split into two spacious rooms filled with fun and engaging equipment. The smaller size of Moorlands Nursery creates a cosy, personal setting for the children here and means we have high staff to child ratios. 


We work closely with Moorlands School to ensure a smooth transition for children moving on to the primary school, making this step easy and enjoyable for them.

Our Groups

The Moorlands Nursery setting comprises of different groups each designed to accommodate and engage children of different age groups.

These rooms provide equipment and activities all tailored around the age and ability of your child, so they can get the most out of their nursery experience.

Our teaching approach puts children at the centre of their learning, allowing them to grow and develop at their own pace.

Minimum Staff to Child Ratio 1:3


This nursery group provides a gentle, calming environment for babies and young children.


Our team arrange tactile, sensory activities for the children in this room, all designed to aid development and grow skills.

Minimum Staff to Child Ratio 1:4


At this age children are exploring their environment, developing mobility and dexterity. We provide activities and resources that provoke thought, curiosity, exploration, and conversation, so children can learn through play.


Children are encouraged to run, jump, and climb to grow motor skills and are included in group activities to build communication skills.

Minimum Staff to Child Ratio 1:8


Here we help children grow their independence by encouraging them to complete manageable tasks for themselves.


Through setting the dinner table, pouring their own drinks, and learning to dress themselves children are able to build confidence and fine motor skills.


Group activities enable children to interact with their peers and develop their social skills.

Nursery Practitioner with children at meal times

The nutritional meals we offer mean that children establish healthy eating habits and can learn about the importance of leading healthy lifestyles.


We serve three homemade meals each day, as well as healthy snacks of fruit and vegetables. Our team of cooks can cater for any allergies/dietary requirements and serve meals in accordance with this.

Meals & Diet

Healthy minds, healthy bodies and healthy appetites

At Moorlands Nursery all the meals we serve are freshly prepared each day with local ingredients. We understand the importance of offering a healthy and balanced diet to children and take this responsibility very seriously.


Mealtimes are a great opportunity for children to learn as well as have fun. We sit in small groups during meals and children are encouraged to make decisions, try new things, and engage in conversation. 

Outdoor Play

Outdoor learning plays an important part in our day here at Moorlands Nursery and we venture outside every day.

The playschool benefits from a large outdoor play area as well as access to the extensive school grounds. We also enjoy using the school’s Forest School area for outdoor learning and exploration.

We believe that through spending time outside children can learn about the natural world around them while also gaining confidence and new skills.

Communicating with you

  • Daily Feedback

    We know you’ll be excited to hear about what we’ve been up to throughout the day at nursery, so when you come to collect your child, we’ll provide you with an update of all the fun activities they’ve been involved in. This will include their progress and achievements as well as information regarding food eaten, sleeps and toileting.

  • Settling in Reports

    After their first six weeks at nursery, we’ll create a settling in report for your child, detailing their time with us so far and how they have adapted to nursery life. This will include friendships and bonds they have made, activities they have enjoyed and their achievements and progress.

  • Learning Journeys

    Our electronic Learning Journeys are a fantastic record of your child’s time at nursery. This online document is accessed via your unique password and includes pictures and observations of your child while they are at nursery. It’s a lovely way to document your child’s nursery experience and is also a useful resource for their teacher once they move on to reception class.
