Taunton School Nursery has a caring, happy, inclusive and friendly community. We are a nursery school and believe in nursery education with a strong element of care. Children thrive if they are secure, happy, and have plenty of fresh air. Our unique guiding principles that shape our school are: every child is a unique individual who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, strong and self assured. Children learn and develop well in enabling environments in which their experiences relate to their individual needs. There is a strong partnership between our staff & extended families. Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. Children need to be taught. It is in the early years that life long attitude to learning and life are set: we believe in brain based learning. We have extensive facilities and can offer trips, swimming lessons, French, music, sport, yoga, baby sensory, baby music etc. We pride ourselves in high quality staff and strong leadership. We have gained 3 consecutive outstandings across all 4 judgement areas. Our inspection can be read on
