Our Philosophy

Child-centred active learning is at the heart of everything we do at our Nursery. 

Our learning draws on the children’s own interests to provide a relevant depth of learning and teaching which underpins their interests and developing skills, by engaging the children in relevant and challenging topics. It is our belief that they begin to take ownership of their learning.

We are very fortunate in being able to draw on the skills and expertise of our school colleagues who are always more than happy to have eager young minds in their classrooms, sports halls and laboratories. 

The children enjoy many and varied experiences in Nursery and out and about in the local community.

These experiences are built up through individual and team approaches, enabling the children to gain confidence and a thirst for learning that are vital for their successful transition to Primary school. 


Our Indoor / Outdoor Learning Environment

Adventure is out there; our Nursery is so much more than four walls. 

Our purpose-built Indoor / Outdoor nursery has wide open spaces and a dedicated garden. Whether it is in the large, bright, airy rooms or the extensive grounds, children can be found absorbed in exciting collaborative indoor and outdoor learning experiences.  

At Morrison’s Academy we don't use our garden for just the messy tasks. We embrace the messy, we look for adventure; we explore and investigate and we use our outdoor space to its full potential.

Outdoor learning provides young children with opportunities to develop their soft skills; resilience, team building and problem solving are at the heart of this.  It also encourages children to be curious and inquire about the environment around them.  

Added to this are the many opportunities to explore the wider world beyond the Nursery – anything from walking in a bluebell wood to turning on the siren of the local fire engine.
