‘You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.’ – Plato

At Teesside High School boys and girls are welcomed into the Nursery at the start of the term in which they turn 3 years old. We are a child-centered, family school, where your child’s happiness and learning needs come first.

Within the warm and nurturing environment at Little Diamonds Nursery, every child is treated as a unique and special individual. Our ethos is to support and encourage the children to feel confident, happy, safe and secure whilst exploring and finding that everything is possible.

Our Little Diamonds are afforded an outstanding level of care to ensure that they have the best start in life. We find great joy in helping them to make exciting discoveries and to unlock their unique skills and talents. The learning experiences that the boys and girls encounter are varied, challenging and, above all, fun whilst providing them with opportunities to develop essential life skills such as persistence, cooperation, and independent thinking.

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, the Nursery children participate in lessons taught by specialist teachers delivering Physical Education and music activities.

The children at Little Diamonds Nursery are very much a big part of school life, attending school assemblies, taking part in sports days and plays as well as other school events. The staff in the Nursery work closely with the Reception class ensuring a smooth transition as they progress through the School. The Nursery and Reception children share the same termly theme and join together regularly to explore and share knowledge.
