Tiny Torre Nursery Unit
Tiny Torre was opened in 2002, and after major building works in 2014, the nursery moved into a new unit. The nursery is designed so that learning can take place both inside and outside. It is a wonderful environment for the children and their development.
Aims of the Nursery
We aim to provide a happy, safe, caring and stimulating environment: a place where all children can play, learn and develop together.
We aim to offer well planned, purposeful and relevant play activities through which children can develop socially, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually and physically.
Our aim is to ensure that all children feel included, secure and valued.
We aim to work in partnership with parents and carers, building on what children already know and can do.
The children will experience a broad and balanced curriculum, relevant and appropriate to their needs. This is planned and assessed in accordance with the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage. In the early years, children learn best when they are actively involved and interested. Playing and talking are the main ways in which children learn about themselves, others and the world around them.
The nursery operates flexible hours, offering places for 26 children in the morning and 26 children in the afternoon. Children come to the nursery for either a whole day including lunch club or for half a day (lunch club optional). We take children from the age of 3 years old. They start in the term after their 3rd birthday.
Morning session: 8:50 – 11:50 (no lunch session)
Afternoon session: 12.00 – 3:00 (to include lunch session)
The government offer 15 free funded hours for all. They are now also offering an additional 15 hours to eligible families. The cost of sessions outside of your eligibility is currently set at £12.00 per 3 hour session.
