“My husband and I opened our first nursery over twenty years ago, because we, like you, were parents who wanted the very best learning environment for our children. We couldn’t find a nursery to match our expectations, so we opened our own. Riverside is a nursery where you and your child are part of a family, where there is a loving and nurturing environment that embraces your child’s potential, to ensure your child’s happiness and future success. Riverside is a nursery where we would be proud to send our own children and we are sure that you will be proud to send yours.” Sandra Taylor, Riverside Nursery Founder
Our mission is to inspire, encourage and motivate children to embrace life’s opportunities by providing a structured and proven learning process. A process that understands that children learn differently from adults and work best when they are allowed to make their own learning choices in a child-friendly, calm and creative environment.
We believe in:-
Realise their pure potential by embracing a proven approach to learning where teachers facilitate and encourage discovery, collaboration, present useful challenges and ensure that tasks are both challenging and appropriate for each child.
Develop a confident and enquiring mind, where they learn through discovery and play, at their own pace, individually and in groups.
Happy, polite, well mannered children enjoying a child centred environment, with exceptional learning facilities. Facilities that include outdoor gardens and the most stimulating and exciting learning spaces, reflecting the seven essential elements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, based on the Montessori approach to learning.
Feel loved, safe, secure and cared for as if they were at home. They blossom with our teachers common sense of purpose, real values and aspirations.
An ‘open door’ where parents and families are encouraged to be involved in the life and work of the nursery.
