Our Aims

Since 1975, the aim of Baslow Edge Nursery is simple one! 


To give your child the chance to grow and develop in a safe, fun, friendly, caring and nurturing environment and give them absolutely the best opportunities to learn during this hugely important time of their lives.

This means that when your children start school, they're not just ready to take that important first step into their next stage of education, but that they are fully prepared to make a 'Big Splash' 


Parent Information


Early Years Foundation Stage

We follow the current pre-school early years curriculum. In doing this, we place an emphasis on early literacy, basic maths skills and the development of personal and social skills which in turn, contributes to children's knowledge and understanding in other areas. In addition, at Baslow Edge Nursery, we also introduce children to basic French.

operate a "key-worker" system, which enables each child's progress to be monitored and assessed through regular observations and following the four principles of the EYFS.
