Welcome from the Headteacher
Welcome to Grandpont Nursery School and Childcare
We work within a very strong tradition of excellent early education and care, based on children learning through play and talk. We put the children’s needs at the heart of what we do. We are continually developing and what we offer is in response to changing needs without compromising on our ethos.
We are unique in our offer as we are a maintained nursery school with teacher led provision for children over the age of three as well as being able to offer high quality childcare, to suit family requirements for the under three’s.
The nursery school offers a more structured day in readiness for each child’s primary education with the expectation that children attend on time and on a daily basis. Wrap around provision and a Holiday Club is also available.
We provide a community run children centre; South Oxford Family Room (SOFR) that is also based in Grandpont as this brings a warm and supportive start to new families in the community.
We are proud of our school, childcare and our family room and enjoy the environment we have built up, including our lovely gardens and our little piece of wild woodland, where we enjoy forest school activities. Grandpont is a place where children – and adults – really can learn through play and explore as independently as possible.
It is a privilege to work with such young children and to nurture in them the skills and attitudes which will help them learn and thrive throughout their lives.
I am delighted to be leading this wonderful setting and love working closely with Grandpont families and their children.
