Amelia Wheeler, Nursery Manager
At Beautiful Beginnings, we offer everything that you would expect from an outstanding (ISI Inspection 2018) day nursery with the added benefit of being set in fifty acres of beautiful park and woodland. I am enormously proud to be part of such an inspirational and distinct nursery, achieving an OUTSTANDING grading for two consecutive inspections, a true testament to our continued commitment to providing children with the very best start in their academic journey!
We all want our children to be happy, cared for and provided with the best learning opportunities. At Beautiful Beginnings, we am committed to improving children’s outcomes and my role, along with my skilled team, is to nurture your child throughout their academic achievements providing them the freedom to develop, explore and thrive. Our vision is to inspire excellence in all that we do, harnessing opportunities both indoors and out, unlocking the potential in every child and setting the foundations for a lifelong love of learning.
At the heart of all we do is the holistic development and pastoral care of each individual child, thereby providing enriching experiences that cultivate the essential skills needed to embrace the world around them. By encouraging every day contact with nature, we can support what inspires and delights young children, developing their interests and building the ideal platform for their future. It is our combination of outstanding childcare and inspiring environments, which makes us so very unique!
At Beautiful Beginnings we really do believe in “ Education in Harmony with Nature”
Exclusive and inspirational education
We have a highly qualified and well-established staff team ensuring your family are greeted every day with a friendly, professional face. Our team pride themselves in listening, observing, questioning and tuning into our children offering them the best support possible so every child can reach their early learning goals. Our personalised key person approach ensures that each and every child has the guidance and support of a skilful practitioner whom is responsive to your child’s needs. Our staff really are committed to excellence and they create a special atmosphere where happy and confident children can thrive and grow!
Our interior is designed in a bright, warm and welcoming way, to make everyone feel comfortable and right at home. Our furniture and equipment has been thoughtfully selected to be both high quality and age appropriate, allowing children to learn through the freedom of play with the importance of safety in mind. Along with our robust practises and procedures, we ensure all environments are equipped to foster academic success and ensure each child can make significant progress in their learning.
We recognise that parents and carers are the primary educators in a child’s life and therefore consider you a very important part of our nursery. As part of our holistic approach to learning and development, we encourage a two way flow of sharing information so that the children’s interests and milestones can be captured at home as well as at nursery. We also hold informative parents evenings and provide you with termly reports so that you always know the brilliant progress your child is making. We are so proud of all the achievements each child makes and believe this is worth sharing and celebrating!
We are confident that you will agree that our outdoor learning environment is truly exceptional and a very magical place to nurture young minds! Our outside area has been fully designed with our ethos ‘childcare in harmony with nature’ and is equipped to allow the children the freedom to play, using a mixture of both imagination skills and physical dexterity. In order to achieve this, we encourage the physical, intellectual, linguistic, emotional and social skills that children need to develop their self-esteem and confidence. This enables them to become happy, fun loving children with the enthusiasm to learn and make friends, feeling independent and respected whilst surrounded by beautiful, natural landscapes.
There are not many nurseries who could boast they are surrounded by such beautiful and exclusive woodland, brimming with endless possibilities for exploration and discovery. Such a diverse landscape provides varied learning opportunities so that every child’s individuality is promoted.
We capture the heart of nature through our careful outdoor planning, with Forest School sessions each week designed to complement our curriculum delivery and nursery vision. These are delivered by our skilled forest school leaders who tailor sessions in accordance to the children’s age and stage of development. The sessions take place throughout the year, enabling the children the chance to experience the different weather conditions and changes of the seasons all whilst having lots of fun, getting nice and muddy and connecting with nature!
Forest School involves activities such as tool use, tree climbing, den making, exploring plants and wildlife, story-telling and woodland art and crafts. The children also learn how to build and light a campfire, as well as prepare and cook some snacks and meals outdoors. These types of activities aim to promote children’s resilience, creativity and independence, all vital life-skills which provide a solid foundation to progress onto school.
Being outside in nature provides the perfect playground for children to move around freely to discover exciting new perspectives on the world around them as they play and explore, helping to support a healthy and active lifestyle. It is so exciting to see how the children delight in our Forest School, with these magical and unique experiences at the heart of our provision!
