You and your child will love our Ofsted Outstanding nursery and preschool in Great Cornard, specifically designed to support your child's development from the age of 3 months to 5 years.
Resources and Rooms for Every Age
Our cosy baby room has everything your tiny one needs to feel nurtured, while they have fun making exciting new discoveries to support their learning and development. Toddlers have their own room designed to encourage their individual interests and routines, with a dedicated toilet area to help with potty training.
Preschoolers will love their rooms, which have been thoughtfully designed for them to explore while discovering their independence. Children enjoy using the building blocks, painting in the art area, discovering how the world works with science experiments, using the indoor climbing frames and reading in the book corner. Preschoolers will feel confident to start school as they take part in our Ready for School Programme and learn the essential skills for them to take their next steps.
As well as our bright and inspiring classrooms, we also have additional rooms to enhance your child's experience with us. These include a calming sleep room and a sensory room.
A Bright Beginning for Every Child
Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.
Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child's wellbeing, development, and progress - whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.
Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.
You can stay updated with your child's day through our Bright Horizons Family app.
Great Cornard Day Nursery and Preschool offers exciting holiday clubs as well as after-school clubs.
Your little one will have enriched days taking part in our unique Healthy Hearts and Minds programme. A mixture of physical sports and wellbeing activities, these teach children how to look after their whole body.
Every room has direct access to its own age-appropriate private garden, created using resources to inspire and engage your child. Our garden areas can be used in all weathers.
