Our Fareham Nursery provides inclusive education and care for children between the ages of 3 months and 5 years. All children are welcome to join our setting. We are, in fact, a specialist provision as our nursery practitioners have vast experience with special educational needs and disabilities. Our setting is divided into two rooms. The ‘Early Explorers’ room is generally aimed at younger children, whilst the ‘Young Explorers’ room is more of a pre-school environment. However, we work closely with parents to ensure that each child is placed in the room that is most appropriate for them, regardless of their age. We also have a sensory room, a soft play room and a generous garden area.

Our experienced staff work closely with parents to ensure the child’s transition into the setting is as worry-free as possible for both the child and family. This close involvement with parents is a factor which is continued throughout the child’s time with us. Parents and carers are welcomed into the setting and valued as part of the child’s nursery experience.


How does the service work?

Your child will be given a designated key person who will be part of the settling in process, and play a vital role in the observation assessment and planning system for your child (a statutory OFSTED requirement). We have strong partnerships with outside agencies - including Speech and Language Therapists, who do regular visits. We also provide support for families going through EHCP applications as well as school transitions for each child.

Our Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is underpinned by a high scope approach where children are supported to become independent learners. All staff are highly skilled and qualified to enable all children to reach their full potential. Earlier this year, the nursery was rewarded with 'Outstanding' from OFSTED.
