Little Swanswell Nursery

Little Swanswell Nursery provides a high standard of care for children from 6 weeks to 5 years old, 51 weeks a year. We foster a family-friendly approach with many of our current and existing staff members using our setting for their own children and families. We are located opposite Coventry College and within walking distance from Coventry University and the city centre.

We offer private and funded places for children eligible for 2, 3 and 4 year funding. Sessions are available morning, afternoon and full days. Those eligible for 30 hours have the opportunity to stretch the funding over 51 weeks per year. 

All our staff have or are studying towards appropriate early years qualifications, and undergo regular relevant training to enable them to fulfil their job roles and responsibilities effectively.

We have 3 play rooms on a ground floor level with intercom systems for effective communication, and a spacious outdoor area monitored by CCTV. Our cook is full-time so all meals are prepared and cooked fresh daily. We offer a 3 weekly menu, catering for allergies and dietary requirements. Each week the children participate in baking activities which contribute to the weekly menu.

Routine is similar in all 3 rooms to aid transitions and support with settling in. In our preschool room we have a qualified teacher leading a team of practitioners in offering high quality teaching and learning opportunities to prepare for school readiness. Focus is on Mathematics, Literacy, and promoting independence, confidence and self-esteem. Children engage in lots of key group work during the daily routine based on their next steps in learning and development. Staff use lots of praise and positive reinforcement to support the children to achieve their goals and ensure they have an enjoyable experience.

We believe children learn best through hand's on experiences so make use of the local area and environment through trips to the park, libraries, Transport museum, Herbert art gallery, supermarket, etc. We encourage parental involvement in all aspects of learning and development and offer parents evenings twice a year.
