Ethos and Vision Statement

'growing with our children and their families'

Children are born ready, able and eager to learn. They actively reach out to interact with other people, and in the world around them. However development is not an automatic process. It depends on each unique child having opportunities to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments.


The aim of Church Lane Nursery is to work alongside, support and encourage the family values and to help give the child opportunities to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments. We aim to provide each child with a positive, supportive and emotionally safe environment, as the care of the children entrusted to us is paramount

During a child’s time at Church Lane Nursery they will be learning and consolidating many new ideas. It is most important to us that they have enjoyed their time with us and have formed good foundations to enable them to reach their full potential and to continue to be competent learners. In order to do this we will work around their needs and abilities and we will be led by the interests of the children.
