At Venn Boulevard Nursery, we cultivate a culture of setting high expectations in a purposeful learning environment that is characterised by happiness, safety, and security.

Our primary focus is on providing a challenging and enjoyable learning experience that fosters the development of essential skills during the crucial early education journey of children.

Ensuring the safety, welfare, and happiness of our children is at the core of everything we do. We prioritise creating an environment where children feel secure and content, enabling them to thrive and reach their full potential.

The majority of children who access our provision do so via Early Education Funding. This funding becomes available for children the term after they turn 2, granting them 15 hours of funding per week. We provide morning and afternoon sessions daily, allowing parents to choose the option that suits their schedule. Recognising that some parents require additional flexibility, we strive to accommodate their needs to the best of our abilities.

We are dedicated to providing a nurturing and supportive learning environment that not only meets the educational needs of children but also ensures their well-being and happiness. We understand the importance of early education in shaping a child’s future, and we are committed to delivering a curriculum that inspires growth and development in a safe and enjoyable manner.
