The Valley Nursery School opened in 1988 and became a registered charity in 1994. Becoming a charity enabled us to provide affordable care and education for young children in our community. We have developed and grown over the last 25 years making use of our beautiful environment and are now celebrated as an outdoor provision.
We have long standing, well qualified staff who have established effective partnerships with the local authority and other early years organisation to keep up to date with current legislation and teaching methods.
All activities are child centered and are developed through observation and reflection ensuring that the needs of the individual child are always met.
A voluntary team of trustees help to manage the setting through regular meetings and direct contact with staff and children.
'We can't thank you enough for the past 6 years of looking after, teaching, guiding and nurturing our boys. The Valley is everything (and more) that we could ask for in a pre-school and our boys have had the best start'.

'We think the setting provides a really great outdoor space for the children to explore and play/learn in. The staff give the children lots of freedom and allow them to begin to take responsibility for themselves and each other'.
