Welcome to Norcot Early Years Centre. Here at Norcot, we are committed to treating each child as an individual. We have a passion for care and education using the natural world and inspire children to learn and develop in our exciting environment.
Norcot Early Years Centre is a large, outstanding (OFSTED 2014) state run nursery school for 3-5 year olds with 180 part-time places. We also have 50 day care places for 0-5 year olds and provide wraparound care from 8am-6pm. We are sited in Tilehurst, Reading near the river in the Thames Valley, west of London and we are a part of a mixed socio-economic and cultural community.
The Centre provides a broad, balanced curriculum following the framework of the Early Years Foundation Stage with a strong emphasis on outdoor learning delivered through our innovative Learning Through Nature programme as featured on the good practice pages of the Ofsted website. Each child and their family are encouraged to work in partnership with staff to build a learning journal as a record of their development and progress. We have a well developed Special Needs policy and practice, ensuring early identification, support, planning and evaluation. Families are closely involved and work with the centre or outside professionals, where needed.
We are constantly developing the Centre to maximise its potential as a learning environment.
We are sure you will find our website interesting and informative.
We aim to support your child's personal development and prepare him or her for the future by:
providing a broad and balanced curriculum with reference to the guidance provided in the Early Years Foundation Stage
Our key values are respect, trust and communication.
The future of maintained nursery schools in England after March 2020 is under threat as adequate funding has not been confirmed after then when the current supplementary transitional funding ends.
There is therefore an on line petition to urge the Government to take action to ensure maintained nursery schools are financially sustainable.
