Nerrols Nursery is a brand new nursery school based in the grounds of Nerrols Primary School and opens this month.
Taunton’s newest nursery will offer care and education for children aged between two and four and aims to provide childcare for parents who have recently moved into the many new housing developments in and around the area.
The purpose built educational facility is extremely modern with large well resourced rooms, free flow access to a designated outdoor area and the wider facilities of the Nerrols campus – including an all-weather pitch, vegetable garden, pond and a range of outdoor play equipment.
Rhian Locker is the head teacher and has told Tone News: “We are very lucky to have a fully qualified teacher and an early years teacher, which is quite unusual in a nursery setting. This means they have the skills to take into account the children’s ages and stages of development; with routines, activities and learning experiences meeting each of their individual needs”.
She goes on to say: “Our aim is to make the children feel happy and secure, to enjoy spending time at nursery, make friends and enjoy exciting, engaging and interesting activities which inspire and give them the confidence to achieve their potential”.
The nursery is part of Huish (the Richard Huish Trust) which sponsors a number of schools in the Taunton area and is linked to Richard Huish College – rated outstanding by Ofsted.
Nerrols Nursery will be open Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 6.00pm for 49 weeks of the year (excluding bank holidays, Christmas closures and staff training days). If you are interested in your child starting at Nerrols Nursery please email firstname.lastname@example.org
