At The Buchan Nursery, we strive for the happiness of every child through a secure, friendly and caring environment. Nursery is where your child’s education begins and a love of lifelong learning is established. Nursery education should be an extension of home life where children gain experience and confidence through play. We will work with you to provide the opportunities for your child to take the first gentle steps to making them independent learners.
At The Buchan Nursery, we give you and your child a positive and happy start to school life by providing a secure, friendly and caring environment, in which your child can flourish physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually.
Gemma Gelling, Head of Buchan Nursery
Our philosophy at The Buchan Nursery is to learn and play in a nurturing environment that provides the stepping stones for every child to fulfil their potential.
At the Buchan Nursery, we recognise that every child is a competent learner and we endeavour to support children in becoming resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. We value the diversity of individuals and recognise that children develop in individual ways and at varying rates.
At The Buchan Nursery, we welcome children from the age of two. The best way to experience life at our happy nursery is to visit us. If you’d like to find out more, arrange a tour or register your child for a place, please contact us.
CARE AND EDUCATION
We provide high quality care and education in a safe and stimulating environment, helping to establish the skills required for school readiness.
PARTNERSHIP WITH PARENTS
We recognise children learn to be strong and independent from secure relationships. We aim to develop caring, respectful and professional relationships with children and their families. We recognise the role that parents play in educating children and we value the contribution you make.
EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY
We offer children and their parents a service which promotes both equality and diversity.
The Buchan Nursery is situated within the beautiful grounds of The Buchan School. We have over 13 acres of grounds, so children can enjoy many outdoor activities. They will also have opportunities to try growing flowers and vegetables; enjoy digging and exploring in the garden environment, as well as experiencing the joys of Buchan Rangers in the woods. There is dedicated Nursery parking and a 10MPH speed limit throughout the grounds.
