Welcome to Oakgrove Nursery

Hello everyone, Mr Keenan here. I hope you are all doing well. I have enclosed some activities for you all to try at home below. Have fun learning with them and keep safe. 

Oakgrove Nursery Welcome

Hello and welcome to the Oakgrove Nursery Web Page.  We are looking  forward to a busy year.

At Oakgrove we want to build upon the learning that has taken place in the home.  We want to provide children with a rich variety of challenging play activities and other experiences in a stimulating environment. The focus is to allow children to learn at their own pace, gain a positive image of themselves as learners and to be able to cope with new styles of learning.
