Sandhills Wolverhampton Nursery

Sandhills Wolverhampton

Sandhills, Wolverhampton is a purpose built Nursery situated off its own private access road in the Lower Penn area of Wolverhampton. It has a large secure on site car park for both the staff and parents. Access to the Nursery can only be gained through one secure key coded door situated at the front of the building. The Nursery consists of 8 rooms (3 baby rooms, 3 toddler rooms and 2 pre-school rooms). Each room has been purposely designed for a particular age group, all of which are well equipped, self-contained - to a high standard with state of the art resources. The children on the ground floor have access to their own outdoor play area in addition to an acre of outside classroom and outdoor physical space. The nursery also has a meeting room, library, reflections room, children’s kitchen area in the pre-school room and CCTV in all areas.

In addition to Early Years Foundation Stage, Sandhills Wolverhampton aims to offer an outstanding and welcoming “home from home” environment using the innovative Reggio Emilia approach to education, allowing children to use their own natural curiosity and energy to help guide their own development. We believe that this approach will ensure that children at Sandhills, Wolverhampton have enough opportunities to develop their potential. We value each child as strong, capable and resilient; this allows our Nursery to adapt this philosophy to create the best environment for the children to learn and develop in. The Reggio Emilia philosophy states that there are a hundred different ways that children use to think, discover and learn new skills on a day to day basis. Sandhills, Wolverhampton aims to allow children to use their different ways of learning to make sure that each child has the chance to learn something new and develop their potential in a way that they find interesting.

Our staff observe our children and listen to their questions and stories to find out what interests each child. This information is then used by our early years practitioners as part of “In The Moment Planning” to provide children with provocations to explore their interests further, which makes learning more enjoyable for children. Children's interests and needs shape and change the environment around them - as practitioners implement and follow up children's interests.

All meals are produced by our cook on site and our menus are reviewed regularly to ensure that we provide a healthy and balanced diet. We provide the children with breakfast, mid-morning rolling snack, lunch and afternoon snack. The children also have access to water all day, milk with mid-morning snack and fruit juice is offered at afternoon snack.
