Carle Class

We warmly welcome you to the Carle Class Page! 

Carle Class is the nursery class at Eynesbury. Here we all work together to provide a caring, safe and stimulating environment for the children to enjoy. Our approach encompasses holistic learning encouraging our children to become active learners, exploring the world through a range of indoor and outdoor experiences. The children can choose to build a den, cook up a storm in the mud kitchen, climb a 'castle' or become a character dreamt up from their imagination. We have wonderful woodland area on our doorstep. Influenced by 'forest school' thinking , we support children to go on adventures, take risks and develop an appreciation of the natural world through sensory exploration.

Nursery Team

The Nursery Team 

Ms Pruden is the Class Teacher and she is supported by Mrs Hawkins, Mrs Ansell and Mrs Huffer. All nursery practitioners actively encourage creating strong partnerships with parents and children, taking time to get to know each unique child and extend their learning following individual interests.


The Curriculum 

At Eynesbury we value the importance of learning through play and in particular through child initiated learning which follows the children's interests. The nursery uses Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage to plan a broad and balanced curriculum. Children take part in a range of playful activities, which focus on intellectual, creative, social and emotional development. Some activities are adult led and some are child led.


Children learn new skills, gain knowledge and show understanding through the seven areas of learning and development. The prime areas are Personal Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. As children grow the prime areas help them develop skills in the four specific areas of Literacy, Numeracy, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.



All children in Nursery have their learning experiences recorded on 'Tapestry,' an online learning journal. When staff complete an observation on a child, it is then uploaded to their journal, often with photos or videos for parents and children to enjoy. Parents receive a notification on their phone or by email and they can then comment on their child's achievement. We also encourage parents to add photos and descriptions of exciting events that have happened at home which help us to work together to create an amazing diary of the child's time in Nursery.

Your child will need......

At Eynesbury Nursery the children wear a uniform. Information about this can be found in our prospectus via the link at the bottom of this page.

We ask you to supply a spare set of non uniform clothes and these are kept in a provided bag on your child’s peg. We recommend that these are comfortable items that the children don’t need at home.

In the winter we play outside as much as we can so we ask you to ensure your child wears a vest if needed, and has a warm coat, hat and gloves. Please remember to bring a pair of named wellies too.

In the summer your child will need a sunhat and to arrive at nursery with sun cream applied in advance.

Please send your child in with a named drink bottle, no milk is accepted into nursery at the current time. A fruit snack is provided by nursery. 

We usually suggest the children have a book bag to bring home books, letters and artwork.  These are available from However at the current time ( Spring Term 2021) we ask you not to send in a bag. Alternative arrangements have been made to send home art work and letters.

Look at all the lovely things we get to do at Nursery! We paint, we sing, we climb, we explore and all the time we are playing we are learning! 

We have available spaces in the Nursery ! 

Children can join us the term following their 3rd birthday, so if you would like to arrange a visit to look around and meet the staff, please call 01480 398029 or email:
