Some children come full-time and some access part-time hours to use their nursery education grant and access our exceptional work. We do not charge top-ups to our fees which gives a clear and transparent picture and a fair access for all children.
House 19 looks after the babies and toddlers and House 20 has the 3-4 year olds. There is a large outdoor play area across the back of the nursery which we have redesigned and made weather -proof for all-year- round access. This has given exciting opportunities for the children as they access a range of quality play equipment.
We are staffed by a dedicated and expert team in the nursery and we support the army-based community in their community. We are very proud to be in this community and parents find us friendly and professional. They recognise that we have a great understanding of their unique situation. We work well with the local school and children transition seamlessly onto a range of local schools within our area.

At the YMCA Brunel Group, we pride ourselves on offering a home-from-home experience that makes children feel comfortable and safe. We deliver a gentle and natural approach to teaching and learning, by taking the lead from the child and helping them to develop their own ideas and problem-solving techniques. We support the needs of each individual child.
Throughout the nursery we encourage exploration, as we believe this to be the strongest form of learning. Whether this is experimenting with the loose parts, exploring our large outdoor environments or discovering our natural and authentic resources, we cater for all interests! We are passionate about children and ensuring that every child has the greatest opportunities and the best outcomes for their future.
We are dedicated to supporting every child of any ability, with a devoted Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) on site to provide additional advice and expertise where needed.
