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 12 months until they move onto school and offer opening hours from 8.30am – 3pm Monday – Friday.
There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventures at Compton Road and we 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, water play and plenty of space for the children to use the climbing frame and tyre swing.
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 children also really enjoy the outdoor kitchen area with plenty of opportunity to explore natural resources for cooking and potion making.
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.
In line with our vision, our curriculum is designed to foster children’s confidence and independence to prepare them for the next stage of their education. We plan daily following the children’s interests and building on what they already know. Alongside this we advocate ‘in the moment’ planning so learning and play can be adapted as we find out what children know and can do. When children begin Nursery we carefully assess their starting points and what knowledge and skills they have. This enables us to monitor their progress and plan purposeful experiences that provide the right next steps in their learning journey.
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 inspiring 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.
