Nursery Ethos and Values

Thameside Nursery provides children with an excellent start to their school journey. In our welcoming and vibrant setting, we ensure that we ignite a love of learning that continues throughout their school career,

Our Nursery is run by an excellent team of Early Years Practitioners who have both extensive experience and a passion for nurturing our youngest children. 

Our Nursery at Thameside, is a place where: 

  • Children are welcomed into a calm, purposeful environment, where everyone feels safe and valued as a result of warm and nurturing relationships and interactions. 
  • Children are encouraged to show kindness, consideration and respect for other children, staff and the nursery environment. 
  • We encourage children's curiosity and exploration, and provide opportunities for creativity and reflection.
  • We will work in close partnership with parents, other agencies and professionals to enable our children to flourish both academically and personally. 
  • Staff provide positive role models, valuing good manners, teaching social skills and consideration for others through our 'school rules' and '5Rs'. 
  • High expectations are embedded to support children to reach their potential and nurture their own unique talents. 
  • Respect and understanding is promoted so that children understand their place within the school and wider community.
