Courage and Perseverance Conquers All

Children at our Core

We believe that children should be the leaders of their own learning. With this at our core, we plan for each individual child and for their own individual interests and needs. The environment is designed and delivered so all children can access and lead in their own learning opportunities and feel safe and secure in their choices.


The staff at St Gilberts Nursery work closely with each child and their parents/carers to understand fully the child and their next steps. Each child is individually planned for and staff encourage the children to embrace and follow their own interests.


We are a small setting and offer limited spaces to ensure we can give the nurture and care that all children should have and deserve to receive. This allows us to build excellent, strong and trusting relationships with all of the children we care for in a space that they can be themselves, have the time and support from their key grown ups and most of all feel, safe, looked after and valued. Being a small setting allows us to build superb relationships with parents and carers, we have the time to talk, listen and make sure that you are heard. We believe that caring for your child is an honour and a privilege and that it is one of the most important jobs you entrust another person to do. At St Gilberts we think of parents as our partners and believe that through working together we can achieve the best for your child.
