At Tudhoe Moor Nursery School we want all children to R.E.A.C.H for the stars! Our caring ethos provides children with a ‘home from home’ where they can truly be themselves and celebrate their uniqueness.
Through our nurturing environment, high-quality teaching and continuous provision, we aim for all children to be:
We believe that these values are crucial to developing our little learners into big explorers. Our world is ever-changing and we want children to be ready for their next steps in life and whatever the future may hold.
We have worked closely with children, staff, parents and governors to create our vision and to implement this in our setting. Each of our key values are linked to a story with a character that we feel demonstrates this message. These stories are shared with children, embedding the message and key vocabulary too.
Children will be:
- Resilient like Mabel from ‘Mabel and the Mountain’ by Kim Hillyard
- Empathetic like George from ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’ by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
- Ambitious like Mae from ‘Mae Among the Stars’ by Roda Ahmed
- Creative like Stanley from ‘Stanley’s Stick’ by John Hegley
- Happy like Elmer from ‘Elmer’ by David McKee
We have lots of copies of these books in school so if you would like to borrow any of our key texts, please come and ask at the school office.
Maintained Nursery School’s Are Unique
We are a maintained school who specialise in educating and caring for the youngest children in our community. We have a different structure to private nurseries because we have a Head Teacher and Deputy Head Teacher who lead the planning and oversee the teaching and learning.
