Guildford Nursery School and Children’s Centre is committed to providing a challenging, inclusive, safe and nurturing environment where we welcome our local families with children under 5.
We celebrate diversity and individuality with everybody working together in partnership to enrich the lives of our children and families.
Guildford Nursery School and Children’s Centre aims to take an active role in improving the outcomes for our children and their families by:
• Providing local families with support, advice and opportunities to take part in a range of activities to promote the development and learning for themselves and their children
• Offering high quality, active learning with children free to explore inside and outside and to think creatively to build self-esteem and self-confidence. The environment will be safe, stimulating, inclusive and child centred
• Ensuring a strong relationship is developed between the child, the family and their key person
• Value the importance of the parents in their child’s life and work with them on their well-being and development
As a Sure Start provision, we offer nursery education and integrated care for children aged two to five years, as well as a range of high-quality services and activities for parents, carers and the local community.
