Welcome to Nursery
At Saint Nathaniel's we have a large 60 place Nursery with a rich, stimulating, vibrant and happy environment. We have a fantastic indoor and outdoor classroom as well as a great playground which we share with Reception, full of rich resources and lots of laughter.
Miss Pyatt, Mrs Goodwin, Mrs Henshall, Mrs Bloor, Mrs Hoskins and Miss Tomkinson are our fantastic teacher's and practitioners who help us to achieve our goals and reach for the stars.
As a Nursery family, we are part of the, 'Rainbows, Sunshines, Raindrops and Stars', key worker groups.
We are in partnership with 'Stoke Speaks Out' and heavily focus our interventions on communication, speech and language. All children in Nursery take part in, 'Time to Listen and Time to Talk', to develop their listening and attention, vocabulary and language acquisition.
Characteristics of Effective Learning
At Saint Nathaniel's Academy we are committed to developing children through a broad and balanced curriculum that challenges, engages and motivates children to learn independently.
