Welcome to Bushy Leaze

We are proud of our Nursery and what each and every one of our children achieve and we would like to share with you how we work and what you can expect when your child joins us. There is more information in the Parents' Section of the website.

Our classes

The children are welcomed into five classes; Ladybirds, Grasshoppers (2 to 3 year olds), Butterflies, Bumblebees (3 to 4 year olds) and Dragonflies (specialist base).  Each area of the nursery provides all children with the environment, resources, staff and activities appropriate to their level of development and need. You can be confident that all of our staff:

  • are trained and experienced in working with young children
  • will give your child lots of praise and attention
  • will keep your child safe, happy and interested
  • will help your child communicate and help them make choices
  • will teach them skills
  • will encourage their curiosity, active learning and sense of awe and wonder


Starting at Nursery

Before your child starts with us we will be happy to show you around and talk about your child’s needs and what we can offer. We will visit you at home in order to get to know your child and will spend as much time as we can learning about them, completing an ‘All About Me’ booklet with you.


We want to work in partnership with you to ensure that your child settles quickly into nursery. We want you to feel welcome too so please tell us at any time if you have any concerns, we will always listen and help if we can. We want every child to feel happy and confident with us, some children take longer to settle than others and we understand if you need to stay with your child for a little while. This is a very important step for your child and if it is handled sensitively it will give him/her greater confidence in other new situations.


Every child will have a key person who will work closely with you so that learning is supported and information is shared. We promote education as a partnership with parents.


Outings and Visits

The children have regular opportunities to make use of the forest trail and play area at the school next door. From time to time the children are taken to local places of interest, such as the annual Christmas Tree Festival, visiting shops and the local library.



Each child has an online learning journal called 'Tapestry' which documents their learning experiences.

We would encourage you to logon regularly to find out what your child has been doing in nursery and share any learning from home.

To find out more about how to get started on 'Tapestry', please take a look at this leaflet.
