Barnabees Nursery is a unique, award winning, independent nursery serving many local Primary Schools in Kidderminster, Bewdley and Stourport on Severn. We offer the following sessions - morning 9.15 to 11.45am, afternoon 12.15pm to 2.45pm and full day sessions from 9.15am to 2.45pm for children aged 2 years to school age. We also offer an early start facility from 8.30am upon request and we offer extra sessions if you need one in an emergency on a particular day providing we have a vacant place available.  We have free funded places for all 3 and 4 year olds with free taster sessions so you can be sure you have made the right choice. We aim to provide a happy, secure, welcoming environment to build positive partnerships between home and nursery You can leave your child with confidence, knowing that they are in a loving and safe environment and that we will work very hard with you to ensure that the transition from home to nursery runs as smoothly as possible.

 

Our setting is situated within extensive natural grounds with a wealth of opportunity for each and every child to reach their full potential in a free-flow, fun environment. We provide age appropriate stimulating and challenging opportunities for all the children to learn through first hand experiences. Our nursery staff all work as a team to plan and deliver the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ with a strong emphasis on learning through play. They offer a wealth of different skills, talents and special interests to the children in order that they can experience a wide range of opportunities. You can find more information about our planning on our Early Years Foundation Stage section. Each child has a ‘Learning Journey’ booklet which is used by the nursery staff to carefully record and monitor each child's interests and learning processes through observations and assessments and therefore plan for their next stages of development. These documents are readily available to the parents/carers and we actively encourage you to read them regularly and to add to them and amend them as you wish. We ask you to provide photographs and special information such as details of family holidays or special occasions such as weddings or christenings so that we can put these into our planning and then incorporate some role play to scaffold your child's learning and their general knowledge.

The Learning Journeys will be finalised with a comprehensive Early Years Foundation Stage Report written by your child's key person during the last few weeks before your child starts school. This report will be discussed with you and it will then form part of our transition preparations between the nursery and your chosen primary schools and it will be handed over to the reception class teacher during this time.
