Compton Road is the smallest of the three Leapfrog sites and is often described by parents as having a homely and nurturing feel. We are open for children from 16 months until they move onto school and offer opening hours from 9am – 3pm Monday – Friday.
We love being outdoors and have recently developed our outdoor play area. Tucked away at the rear of the nursery is our green garden comprising of a two-story playhouse, digging pit, mud kitchen and plenty of space for the children to plant and grow strawberries and tomatoes. Adjacent to the nursery, under the protection of a UV canopy, is our soft surface play area. Children enjoy this safety surface for riding their bikes and scooters, it can be accessed every day and in all weathers due to the protective canopy.
The nursery benefits from a sensory room providing a calm, quiet space where we can work with children in small groups or individually away from the busier nursery environment.
To foster their independence, children are encouraged to make choices in their learning using resources that are freely available in the nursery. Our planning for the children is ‘In the Moment’ so that children’s learning is supported and extended at a time when they are most engaged which increases their capacity for learning.
The children’s progress and development is closely tracked using an app called Tapestry, the same tool used in many local Primary Schools. This allows your child’s key person to work in partnership with you to ensure your child is getting the most out of their nursery experience and sets them in good stead for their future learning at school. Our friendly and experienced staff team will ensure your child has a fun learning experience in a safe, stimulating environment.
We have a modern security system at the nursery. The gate is locked electronically with a buzzer entry system linked to an intercom inside the nursery.
If you would like to visit us to meet our established staff team and have a tour of the nursery, please call us to make an appointment. The nursery is often over-subscribed so we recommend that you put your child’s name on our waiting list as early as possible.
Leapfrog Nursery at Compton Road is regulated by Ofsted. Our latest inspection was 9th May 2017 where the nursery was judged as Good overall with ‘Outstanding’ in the area of Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare.
