INTRODUCTION TO OUR NURSERY
Branston Community Day Nursery is situated on the site of Branston Community Academy, a unique institution in Lincolnshire and one that has achieved both local and national recognition for all round excellence.
The Nursery is a non-profit making, self-sufficient unit run by the governors of the Academy to be a facility able to take children of both Academy Staff and the local community. It operates on a fee-paying basis, and under the Early Years Grant Scheme, has been validated to provide nursery education for three and four year old’s. Specified sessions are run for those eligible for nursery funding, currently 15 hours. The location of the
nursery on the Academy grounds provides added educational benefits. Our nursery timetable affords the children regular access to the joint Academy/branch library, which has a special section for young children. The Academy has extra safe indoor and outdoor space for music and movement and physical activities and a newly constructed, natural environment for creative play and exploration, which includes an extensive growing den area. Participation in all such activities is undertaken, of course, in consultation with parents/carers and in the light of the children’s ages.
