We are thrilled to reveal that plans are underway for the expansion of Bluebell Nursery, part of our Prep School in Taverham, due to an unprecedented demand for places.
It was only last year that we launched Bluebell Nursery and the brand new baby room, where we cater for babies and children from 6 months to 4 years old. It has been so successful that there is now a mounting waiting list.
The plans for this next phase include a new, purpose-built nursery space to meet demand.
Head of Nursery and Pre-Prep, Mrs Allison Skipper comments, “We are absolutely delighted with the success of Bluebell Nursery and what’s really special is seeing the children not just settling but flourishing in the new setting. The feedback from parents has blown us away, and we couldn’t ignore the demand for more places, so that’s why we are expanding.”
The new nursery space will feature a ‘Tots-Town’ theme, with role play and sensory learning a key focus. The facility will also continue Langley’s Outdoor Learning focus, with a woodland theme and the chance for children to play and explore in the extensive woodland and grounds. The development will also see existing buildings on the school site re-purposed to form a Pre-School for those aged 3 to 4.
“Our daughter joined Bluebell Nursery aged 12 months and later this year she will move up to the next room,” comments a Nursery parent. “The way in which the practitioners interact with her is more than any parent could ask for – the care and interest they have is so apparent. We know, without a shadow of a doubt, that Bluebell has been the best start for our daughter, and this is just the start of her Langley journey.”
Bluebell Nursery offers an all year-round nursery provision, with an option for term-time-only for those parents who have children in the Langley Pre-Prep or Prep School.
The opening of the expanded nursery is planned for April 2024.
