Ryton Infant and Junior School Federation

Positive, Respectful and Safe

Our Nursery

Welcome to our Nursery page

We cater for all little learners from 2 years old up to 4 years old and we are the very beginning of the Ryton Federation education journey! We work very closely with all staff and children in the Infant and Junior building to support transition for later years but to also to provide a vast range of experiences from a young age. 


We have a highly qualified and dedicated team of staff who pride themselves on supporting and nurturing each child's development to reach the best outcomes. We challenge each child to extend their learning and development by building on what they know and can do. We encourage and teach children how to be independent and creative, critical thinkers and help them to develop a love of learning. All staff work closely with the children to enhance learning experiences in all areas of the curriculum and provision we offer. Whilst the the team work with and care for all children, each child has a key person at each stage of their Nursery journey. We work in partnership with parents and carers and external agencies in order to provide the best possible start for each and every child in our care and have termly meetings to discuss and share your child's learning in more detail. 


We provide all children with opportunities for free flow play and exploration. This means the children can choose to be indoors or outdoors across the school day. We have a wonderful outdoor area with a hidden garden which has been designed to give children meaningful experiences in nature spanning all areas of leaning across, all seasons. In addition to our fabulous outdoor area we are lucky to have access to to our on-site forest area, hens to look after and hill area to explore. Within all of our outdoor learning we encourage the children to be as independent as possible; from dressing themselves appropriately to taking charge of their own and their friends safety.
