The Caring Hands Nursery consists of two rooms with children ranging from ages 2 to 5.

Toddler room: 2-3 year olds

At this stage, your child will be growing in independence. As they start choosing to do things for themselves, we are there to guide them to provide support and reassurance.

At this stage, your child will be growing in independence. As they start choosing to do things for themselves, we are there to guide them to provide support and reassurance.

Being a toddler is both exciting and a little daunting. We are there to nurture your toddler’s desire to explore and investigate.

Your child is further exploring their powers to communicate, to move purposefully, to assert independence and control important bodily functions. It is a powerful time full of emotions, struggles, delights, and achievements and we are there to help them navigate this stage of their Learning Journey with us.

We provide an abundance of enjoyable activities and experiences to encounter for the first time, then to explore again and again, as new skills and new words are mastered and refined. Our trained Early Years staff understand the world of toddlers and provide supportive nurturing guidance that balances the need to be independent with the need for reassurance from caring adults. Your child’s vocabulary will be rapidly increasing as they seek answers and continue to discover and make sense of the world around them. They will continue to need physical challenges as they gain greater control and awareness of their bodies.

We support them at this important stage by creating strong social environments where they can make positive relationships with children and adults, to support their communication and language.

We also provide opportunities where children can explore cause and effect by looking at how and why things happen and our trained staff assist them in making healthy choices by encouraging greater independence at meal times and with self-care routines.


Preschool room: 3-5 year olds

Now your child is three, they have become a confident explorer of the world and seek new challenges.

Our pre-school programmes are designed to provide the teaching and learning that grows confident readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, athletes & artists.

Curiosity and the drive to question, investigate and test out ideas develop in children during the pre-school years. We will support your child to grow in confidence and be more independent, solve problems, work with others and develop an understanding of how the world works so that they leave us with a lifelong love of learning.

Programmes for learning are designed to lay the pedagogical foundations that give your child the confidence to:

  • Be ready to read and confidently equipped with the desire, vocabulary, and language-deciphering skills they have developed through experiences that are meaningful to them
  • Approach the world with curiosity and have the knowledge and skills that lead to success in mathematics and science; a growing interest in the properties of things and the relationships and forces that exist in the natural world
  • Use their personal and social skills of listening and communicating with others, self-discipline, patience, teamwork and ability to solve problems
  • Through a rich variety of projects, children investigate the fascinating world in which they live, enhancing the development of emerging knowledge and skills. A balance of child-initiated and adult-led guided learning across a balanced curriculum is provided throughout the day.
