Nursery

For boys and girls aged 3-4

We are a child-centred, family-focused independent school, where your child’s happiness and learning needs come first.

At Teesside High School, boys and girls are welcomed into the Nursery at the start of the term in which they turn three years old. We are renowned for creating a warm, welcoming and nurturing environment where each child is treated as a special and unique individual. We are proud to support and encourage our children to feel confident, happy and safe whilst unlocking their skills and talents.

Choosing a Nursery for your child is an incredibly important decision and saying goodbye on your son or daughter’s first day can often be a difficult and emotional experience. We find that our flexible approach to transition is extremely beneficial; we offer the chance for pupils to spend time with us prior to joining and, due to our small nature, can work around you and your family to develop the best transition plan for your child. We often have children who build up their sessions across a number of months as they progress towards starting School full-time.

Our work is very much in partnership with parents; we aim to build positive and proactive relationships with families to ensure a child’s very best start in life. We use a dedicated, secure portal to share updates and photographs from your child’s week and operate a consistent ‘open door’ policy to ensure you too are happy with your child’s new setting.

“Within our independent nursery, we offer a variety of experiences for children to explore at their own pace in preparation for their journey into school life.”

In addition to the EYFS curriculum, Nursery children benefit from lessons taught by specialists in PE and music, for example, and our most able children are stretched and challenged by joining their friends in Reception for core teaching in subjects such as English and maths, helping further their excellent development.

The children at Little Diamonds Nursery play a big part in school life; attending school assemblies, taking part in sports days, performances and plays as well as other school events. The staff in Nursery work closely with other Pre-Prep classes, ensuring a smooth transition as pupils progress through the School.
