Redland Nursery is situated in the grounds of Redland County Primary School in Chippenham, Wiltshire and is registered for 56 places in the age range 0-5 years. Note – our new baby room ” Buttercups “opened for up to 12 babies in a warm and homely environment in December 2018.
We are very fortunate to have three large rooms with plenty of light that lead onto the surrounding garden, offering free-flow play for each room in designated play areas. We are passionate about our outdoor play and across the YMCA we are developing exciting outdoor activities for children. We have access to the adjacent school field for running around and there is also a wonderful woodland area for the children to explore, develop play and let their imagination run free.
Outdoor play is an essential part the children’s day. We use the garden in all weathers; sunshine, cold, rain, or snow and we provide waterproof clothing if needed.
Our caring staff team leads the practice in the well-equipped rooms in a warm, friendly, and enthusiastic manner. We believe that it is important for the children to have fun and learn at the same time. We work closely with our parents and believe in sharing information to help children develop. We have introduced on-line learning journals (Tapestry) and parents can upload their own special moments in their child’s life as well as seeing how their child settles and develops at nursery each day.
