At Flying Start, we want your child to make lasting memories. We plan a schedule of activities to fulfil the curriculum, meet your child’s individual needs and create space for imaginations to thrive. Our highly-qualified team will ensure that your child is safe and comfortable throughout each session. Our nursery professionals know how to help get the best out of every moment.
Each day with us is enhanced by valuable learnings, interactions and resources, so we plan out every hour carefully to let everything take place seamlessly. Our efficient drop-off process is followed by designated learning and activities for each age group, with break for lunch and snacks. At home time, you can see the evidence of how much your child has enjoyed their time with us.
As you bring your child into the nursery each morning, their designated nursery worker will be available to oversee their arrival. You can let them know anything which will impact your child’s day, whether positively or negatively. For example, if they’re a little more tired than usual or if something exciting happened at home. Their key worker will then welcome them in to start their day.
The value of fun to learning cannot be underestimated, with a variety of different types of play. These sessions are designed to allow children’s imagination to flourish, while also adding educational value through the resources we provide. Play time also helps physical and emotional development, creativity, reading skills, sporting and musical abilities, and plenty more.
We will serve your child delicious, nutritious meals during their time with us, including breakfast, dinner, tea, snacks and drinks. We provide tasty dishes such as vegetable curry and sausage casserole, along with healthy fruit. Your child has a wonderful opportunity to interact with others as they eat, which will be facilitated by nursery workers sitting alongside.
We help children to build their knowledge and understanding in core areas, as they approach full-time education. We adhere to the early years foundation stage, which covers learnings such as communication, numeracy, literacy, physical development, arts and design and language. Each age group will participate in a range of sessions for their needs, such as colours and shapes for the youngest.
Children love to feel a sense of adventure in connecting with the world around them, and outdoor play helps them to do exactly that. They will thrive in our outside area, where learning meets play by promoting physical development, social skills, independence and confidence.
When your child gets proper rest, they will feel happier, be better prepared for learning and have enough energy to get the most from the nursery experience. Our sleep and rest sessions are factored into our timetable to provide the crucial peace and quiet, particularly for younger ones. We often schedule this after lunch, but we’ll happily adapt to different routines.
We know there are so many questions when you’re away from your child for the day, so we’ll tell you everything you need to know at home time. Their appointed key worker will oversee the handover and give you a full update on progress, the day’s activities and anything else of note. If you have any queries, don’t be afraid to ask. All that’s left is to say good bye and look forward to the next exciting day!

We appreciate the value of play, which is at its most impactful when learnings cross over into children’s education.
When children are truly inspired by learning, they are in awe of their environment and their creativity and imagination thrives.
Interacting with other children teaches the value of listening, empathy, sharing, emotional connection and self-expression.
