Our nurture group takes place in The Orchard.
Our Nurture Group room is carefully arranged to have the best of both classroom and a home environment. It is designed to be warm and welcoming in order to provide a consistent, predictable and safe place for the children. There are areas for sharing stories, circles times and for completing tasks, there is an additional area for hosting 'breakfast' and 'snack time', where children are able to sit as a group to share a meal. Within The Orchard there is also a quiet area for children to use for thinking time or for finding their own space.
