St James provides 2 units:
for younger children, aged 3 months to 3 years
for children aged 3-5 years.
Each child has a special member of staff (a “key person”) who ensures that they are happy, secure and who is responsible for their learning, development and making progress.
The Nursery also runs a small holiday club for children aged 4 – 8 years.
We are compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations 2018 – no personal data is shared unless legally obliged to do so or where consent has been provided. We are registered with the Information Commissioners Office.
"I love receiving my daughter’s photos, videos and observations online.
It’s so reassuring to see she is happy”
Each child is unique. The child is the curriculum and what they learn and how they learn is unique to them. We follow the child’s interests, the seasons, celebrations and festivals. We have the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as our framework, and using our environment as the ‘3rd teacher’, we plan in the moment for each individual child.

“I am happy be at nursery with my friends. My best things are all the dinosaurs and sharks. I love it when we go to the park and play tennis.”
