Charnwood’s ‘Outstanding’ inclusive nursery at Heaton Moor caters for children aged 2-4 years and operates during term time only. We generally follow the term dates of Stockport Local Authority matching with local primary schools with occasional minor differences . During holiday periods we arrange ‘Play Days’ for families of children with SEND and also hold Holiday Clubs in some of the longer holidays.


Charnwood’s ethos is based on Christian values and is upheld by all staff regardless of their own beliefs.  All children are valued for their uniqueness, potential and are celebrated for what they can do and achieve. The family is at the centre of our work and we offer support to each family on an individual basis in whatever way we can. We have an in-house Family Support Worker and in addition we access the services of Start Well.

Curriculum and Learning

Charnwood follows the Early Years Statutory Framework and Development Matters document which lay out the expectations of learning and development, safeguarding and  health and safety. We have well resourced, continuous provision on each nursery floor which allows children to access learning via a wide range of activities at their own level with challenge provided to enhance their skills. Highly qualified staff support the children’s learning by observing, planning and assessing their progress on a regular basis. This is shared in a variety of ways with parents to enable parents to input into their own child’s development.

Outdoor Learning

Playing outdoors is a key part of children’s learning. The outdoor area has been extensively developed over the last few years to provide a wide range of accessible activities to support physical development, exploration, curiosity, experimentation and active learning. Three purpose built lodges have created indoor spaces within the outdoors which offer quiet, warm learning spaces.
