Honest Toun Nursery offers a wide range of exceptional activities and extras to enrich every child's experience at nursery and to support busy parents.
We help pre-school children become confident little swimmers with regular lessons at the local pool.
Caterpillar Music Class
Caterpillar Music brings music, action, songs, puppets and instruments together through exciting activities for our children at nursery.
Step It Up Dance
Our 2-5 year old’s can take part in Step It Up Dance sessions. These classes are a fun and relaxed way to encourage physical movement and confidence.
We believe that reading should be lots of fun so we run a mini library service to encourage children to share their favourite stories with parents, and to help busy parents keep the bookshelf interesting at home!
E-Learning Journals allow you to see your child’s activities at nursery with the click of a button. Staff upload images and notes about your child's participation in activities at nursery for you to access wherever you are. Our nursery tablets offer exciting and stimulating learning experiences tailored to challenge and engage little ones.
We are lucky to have our own Nursery Teacher who works closely with our children and their key workers to ensure that children make good progress within all aspects of their development in readiness for school.
We are lucky to have staff members able to use and teach sign language to our children. The skill of signing from an early age benefits all children as it can ease frustration for children who are not yet talking, support social interaction and communication, as well as develop fine motor skills that support writing later on.
Caring for animals can be a very calming and relaxing experience for children as well as an opportunity to assess risk. This provides many vital learning opportunities and skills that supports children's transition to school and adult life. Children name, feed and care for nursery pets. We currently look after nursery fish.
Our nursery enjoys great ties with our local community and we are often out and about visiting local sights and getting involved in events. We enjoy visits to the local parks, have good community links with the local nursing home, supermarkets, soft play and pet shop.
We celebrate Christmas by putting on a wonderful Christmas show for friends and family each year. There's always much excitement in preparing for the show as we learn songs and organise our special dress ups.
We celebrate the big move to primary school with a special graduation ceremony each year—caps, gowns, the works!
In recognition that education begins in the home, we are fully committed to a partnership approach with parents. Parents are kept up to date with monthly newsletters, parent focus groups and parent’s evenings twice a year. Parents are also able to keep up to date with activities going on in the nursery by following our social media accounts; Honest Toun Facebook, Bertram Group Instagram and Bertram Group Twitter.
Our nursery encourages children to celebrate festivals throughout the year. This is one of the best ways for children to learn about different religions and cultures by celebrating various world religious festivals, food tasting from different countries, and dressing up in the national dress of their friends.
Taking part in fundraising activities helps children to learn about others that are less fortunate than themselves and understand how we can help them. Fundraising events are good fun and are a great way to get children, families and communities together. We are currently fundraising for Children's 1st.
We accept your courier deliveries to make things that little bit easier for busy parents.
Settling In Sessions
Our nursery offers settling in sessions. Parents can bring their child for a couple of hours first, gradually introducing the child to a new environment. Settling in sessions are aimed at helping your child to adapt to their new surroundings and become more familiar with the staff and other children.
