The nursery provides childcare for babies & children in the local community, as well as childcare for staff & students who attend Newton Rigg College
On joining our pre-school your child enters a journey which prepares them for primary school, we now are promoting total independence & our children are now developing their maths & literacy skills at a remarkable pace, they also learn more about expressive arts and media through our linked programmes of activities such as singing and drama with Pyjama Drama.
Our Toddler room is registered for 15 children and caters for toddlers aged 2-3, the room is set in the main building and the children have free-flow access to an outdoor verandah and to the back garden.
At the age of two children are now very inquisitive and have a thirst for knowledge and learning, in the nursery we encourage this through the use of open ended play opportunities.
Children are now showing an interest in letters and numbers so we provide a well-stocked mark making and math’s area along with an ICT area where toddlers have access to a computer.
Our baby room is registered for 12 babies, caters for babies from the age of three months up to the age of two, the spacious room is set in a single storey building giving your little ones the space and opportunity to explore and discover new experiences every day.
The room is set out to provide stimulating and challenging activities for the babies to explore and develop their understanding of the world.
Staff in the room also provide daily activities such as painting, going out on walks to see the horses and sheep on the college facility, as well as playing in our fantastic outdoor area.
