Our Nursery

Hollytree Nursery has a welcoming culture and from the minute of stepping inside you can feel there is a warm welcoming atmosphere with approachable caring staff. The nursery genuinely takes an interest in your child’s learning and development and staff are enthusiastic each step of the way. We celebrate your child’s success with certificates, star of the week trophy and enjoying sharing special news and events in your child and families life.

There is an emphasis on outdoor learning and staff in each playroom plan for experiences outdoors every day. We have triple buggies for walks with the babies and are lucky to be in an environment where parks, woodland areas and local libraries are available to our service.

The playrooms are grouped by age and each has their own unique name:

*Babies 0-2 years + Squirrels and Foxes
*Toddlers 2-3years + Robins
 Preschool 3-5 years Owls

*Children move once per year in summer depending on when child’s birthday falls this decides when they move to next playroom


The Owls

The Owls playroom is located on the second floor of the main building with the staff to child ratio being 1:8. Children are given the choice of two large playrooms where they can be independent in their leaning and select resources and experiences of interest to them. The Curriculum for Excellence is tracked through planning and topics which are child led. The Owls have an ‘Adventures at Hollytree’ programme where extracurricular learning is planned for in the community. Children that progress through the Owls playroom to school are involved in a Graduation ceremony at the end of term.
