Our vision is to provide a welcoming, sociable, opportunity-rich environment that safely challenges all children, enabling them to meet their full potential.
I was one of the founding members of the Trailblazers team who first created a nursery provision at Treverbyn in 1997. Through a combination of hard work and determination from the team, plus excellent support and loyalty from parents/carers, we were able to establish an excellent reputation. The purpose built nursery was added to Treverbyn Academy's site in 2005, enabling us to cater for a wider age range (from birth to rising 5’s) and provide childcare during term times, in line with the main school.
We strive for the best possible outcomes for all children using the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, recognising that every child is unique. We provide high quality care through a well-motivated, knowledgeable and committed team of practitioners. We nurture trust and confidence in our children by creating a fun and varied environment where they can happily learn through play. We actively support children's emotional and social development, enabling them to get the most out of their nursery experience and be ready for the next stage of their life.
Our outdoor learning environment is developing at a very fast pace and includes a sensory garden, mud kitchen, bug hotel, sand and water play as well as tree climbing and den building opportunities. These enable the children to manage their own risks in our safe, supervised environment.
Our latest OFSTED report (July 2019) judged us as 'good' in three categories and 'outstanding' in Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare. Particular mention was made of:
- Our children being exceptionally happy and secure with exemplary behaviour
- The ways in which our practitioners provide a caring atmosphere where all children receive individual attention and form warm and nurturing relationships
- Practitioners developing strong language skills in the children
- Parents receiving detailed information about their child's progress
