Welcome to Osborne Nursery School

We offer a creative, stimulating balance of child initiated and adult led activities and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. We are committed to outdoor learning, with our large, varied outdoor space being freely accessible to children.

The children are divided into small groups of children where they have the support of a key worker, who is the main link between child, family and nursery. We aim to offer a learning environment that enables and empowers children to become independent learners and thinkers, who are able to communicate clearly and sociably with others.

We have an on-site forest school which enables our children to experience and learn from the natural world, our weather and the seasons. They develop their language, confidence and social skills whilst making new discoveries and solving problems together.




We work closely with parents as you know your children the best. All families are offered an initial induction meeting and regular parent meetings and Play and Learn with your Child Days. We have an open door policy and your partnership is valued.

Our Vision and Aims

At our nursery, we pride ourselves on providing a dynamic and inclusive educational experience for young learners. Our curriculum is designed to strike a perfect balance between child-initiated and adult-led activities, ensuring a creative and stimulating environment. Following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, we focus on fostering holistic development, encompassing cognitive, social, and emotional aspects. Our dedication to outdoor learning is exemplified by daily access to our garden during sessions and a bi-weekly half-day session in our on-site Forest School. This outdoor exposure enhances physical development and instills a love for nature from an early age. Every child is assigned a key worker, establishing a crucial link between the child, their family, and the nursery. This personalized approach ensures that each child receives the necessary support and attention, promoting a sense of security and belonging. Our overarching goal is to create an environment that nurtures independent learning and critical thinking.

We aspire to equip children with the skills to communicate effectively and interact socially with their peers. To enhance the creative aspect of learning, we collaborate with artists and performers, creating a vibrant and diverse educational landscape.Furthermore, our commitment extends to working closely with parents and carers. Recognizing that you know your children best, we value the partnership between home and nursery, ensuring a comprehensive and well-rounded approach to each child’s development. Together, we strive to lay a solid foundation for a lifetime of learning and growth. We have an open door policy and your partnership is valued. Our school does not have a school uniform, however children need to be dressed in clothes that they can manage themselves and that they can run, climb and play in e.g. velcro shoes or trainers, elasticated trousers or leggings, T-shirts and jumpers or sweatshirts. Their clothes will also get dirty and messy so please keep their best clothes for after school!
