Kender Nursery

Children can start at Kender Nursery from 3 years of age. Kender Nursery focuses on developing confident and independent children who are able to make informed choices and decisions for themselves, whilst developing a caring and considerate and responsible attitude towards other people and their environment.  We believe that the consistency provided by regular sessions and routines, a familiar and consistent peer group and staff team, are significant factors in developing these life skills.

We believe very strongly that young children learn best by playing and by following their own passions and interests. We support the children's learning by ensuring our curriculum is rich and varied and provides challenges that stimulate their interest and follow their passions, particularly outside in our lovely, large garden.

Kender Nursery is a large nursery, which is lead by Lead Teacher Julie. Supporting Julie are Early Year’s specialists; Sarah Jane and Samantha, an Early Years Practioner; Kandice. Early years assistants Joe and Lorraine alongside our Early years apprentices Shannon and Kyron. Lunchtime support is provided by Eniko and Rose

We are very lucky to have lots of people helping our team, including other teachers, apprentices, therapists and students.
