Visits and Visitors


To enhance our curriculum and provide a rich variety of learning experiences for the children, we enjoy a wide range of visitors to the nursery. These visits are funded by your school fund contributions. Times and dates of these visits can be found on our 'Calendar' page. We will share pictures of these visits on our Seesaw app so that you can chat together with your child about the exciting experiences they have been enjoying in nursery.
