Maria Montessori said “adults admire their environment; they can remember it and think about it – but a child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates in himself all in the world about him that his eyes see and his ears hear”. 


Outstanding Education and care in your area

Our Curriculum 

We believe in a child-centred approach to our curriculum.  We work diligently to create highly engaging, enabling environments.  We are passionate to ensure that our nursery is a wonderous place for our children to experience awe and beauty through nature and authentic opportunities.
We are a nursery without 'toys', meaning we use authentic real items, loose parts and nature through the seasons.
We view young children as curious individuals who have an innate powerful ability to see the potential world which surrounds them.  
Our Approach
The approaches and experiences we offer to enhance children's early learning and education include:
In The Moment Planning & Enquiry Based Learning
The Curiosity Approach - which includes a sprinkle of many ethos' including
Reggio Emilia/

The wider the range of possibilities we offer children, the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences.

 Young Haymakers Nursery is registered with Ofsted and we are very proud to inform you that

following our last inspection we achieved 'Outstanding in all areas' of the Early Year

Foundation Stage in May 2013


We plan a curriculum that provides experiences and  opportunities for children to develop and progress from their own child initiated play which we call 'Inquiry Based Learning' then following our lines of inquiries, our educators (teachers) deliver, provide, extend and resource high quality opportunities for the children. This enables our children to achieve their full potential in learning and development across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

We seek to build a strong nurturing relationship with every child in our setting and  to achieve the 'best outcome' for every child and family; it is paramount that we develop a mutual, respectful relationship with the child and their parents/main carers.  Our aim is for parents to have confidence to leave their most precious child with us and we truly appreciate the trust they place upon us

;To ensure we achieve this we have a highly qualified staff team which include  

two Early Years Teachers

three Montessori Directresses

five NVQ Level 3 Teachers

three Forest School Leaders
