Homely Day Nursery for Babies and Toddlers
Babies at Midway Academy, are eased into nursery life in their very own home-from-home environment.. Our childcare experts find that this helps to familiarise babies and relax parents, making the settling-in period easier for all. Secure bonds with key workers are developed here through cuddles and reassurance and a variety of sensory experiences are offered to support growth and development
Learning in the Possums room continues to challenge physical development and early language, literacy and numeracy skills. Child-led play means there’s plenty of time for water play, singing and the exciting activities we offer to comply with the EYFS statutory framework. They also enjoy exploring the outdoor area complete with sand pit, and mud-kitchen.
School Readiness in The Preschool Room
Our preschool children are taught in a bright airy space with high ceilings – perfect for creative and educational play.
Here we begin to prepare them for the school journey ahead and help to develop their independence and confidence by providing them with direct access into the outdoor area.
When our preschool children leave us they tend to go onto local schools including Picknalls first school, St Joseph’s primary school, Tynsel Parkes first school, St Mary’s C of E first school, Talbot first school, Dove first school in Uttoxeter as well as schools within the Leek, Rugeley, Marchington, Doveridge area.
Children benefit from being outside in all weathers and here at Midway Academy we incorporate outdoor play into our daily schedule.
