Pathways E-ACT Academy Nursery is in the community of Longley, North Sheffield and provides funded Nursery places for up to 38 children aged 3+.
The Nursery is situated in the designated Foundation stage setting, which also houses two reception classes and is the prefect opportunity to prepare your child for starting school.
Pathways Nursery is a nursery that prides itself on its endeavour to provide high standards of quality care and education. We believe that care and education are inseparable. We believe it is paramount to establish a loving atmosphere fostered by good relationships between home and nursery. These connected relationships are vital to help our children to feel happy, settled and secure.
We promote this practice and the care and welfare of our children is of the utmost importance during their time at our nursery.
The Foundation setting is a perfect environment for children to learn and enjoy play, physical exercise, exploration, curiosity, and discovery. Children have access to stimulating indoor and outdoor provisions such as our outdoor mud kitchen, where the children can learn and explore using their senses.
In the Nursery classroom, the children have opportunities to develop their skills through early phonics, telling stories using actions, and having adult led focussed teaching in small groups.
We also encourage independent learning skills through play such as tidying up and getting dressed. All adults interact with the children to help build communication skills and develop relationships with their peers.
