Established in 1992, West Wight Nursery is based on the site of St. Saviour's Catholic Primary School in Totland and is a community nursery welcoming all children between the ages of 3 months to 12 years.
Staff at West Wight Nursery provide education and care within the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. Play underpins learning and development and staff provide a balance of child initiated and adult led play based activities to meet each child's developmental needs. "Excellent staff interactions and effective teaching techniques ensure that all children's future learning steps are identified and monitored exceptionally well. This means that children make very good progress" Ofsted 2013.
Children gain in skill and understanding through their play, especially when they are able to share their enjoyment with an adult and to talk about their discoveries. Every child's learning journey is documented in a personal file which is given to the parent/ carer when the child leaves us. This provides a lovely record of the child's time with us.
You may or may not know that West Wight Nursery is a registered charity. I would like to ask for your assistance this year with our fundraising efforts. Find out more and how you could help in the HELP PLEASE newsletter on this page.
To claim 30 hours free funding both parents must be working a minimum of 16 hours. If you are a lone parent/carer then you must be working 16 hours. Funding can be split over 2 settings if necessary. More information on News & Offers page.
The Isle of Wight Council is committed to giving all children and young people high quality education that enables them to make progress and achieve well. For children and young people aged 0 to 25 with special educational needs or a disability, additional or specialist support may be needed to enable this. To support the process of identifying the range of provision and advice that is available, the Isle of Wight Local Authority have published a local offer.
