The Shells Nursery

Our focus is on providing high-quality learning opportunities across all areas of the Early Years curriculum, tailored to each child's interests and needs.


At Oldway, we understand that every child is unique, with different starting points and experiences. That's why we strive to create a supportive atmosphere that fosters strong partnerships between our staff, children, and families. Communication is key, and we value the relationships we build with parents and the community to ensure that every child feels valued, safe, and has a sense of belonging.


Our curriculum, guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and Development Matters, emphasises both prime and specific areas of learning, including communication, physical development, literacy, mathematics, and more. Through hands-on experiences and child-led exploration, we lay down solid foundations for lifelong learning.


In our 'Oldway Wild Learning' environment, children engage in a range of activities that ignite their curiosity and love for learning. From planting and building camps to exploring the properties of water, we encourage a sense of awe and wonder in every lesson.


We prioritise oracy and reading, embedding them throughout our curriculum to develop effective communicators and foster a lifelong love of reading. Additionally, we focus on health and self-care, offering daily supervised toothbrushing sessions and promoting healthy eating habits.


By the end of their time in the nursery at Oldway, our aim is for every child to possess a positive attitude towards learning, effective communication skills, healthy habits, and a strong foundation for future success. We want to inspire curiosity, nurture creativity, and instil a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. Join us as we embark on this journey of discovery and growth together.
