Welcome to Houghton Community Nursery School



Headteacher’s Welcome Message


I would like to welcome you to Houghton Community Nursery School’s website.


Houghton Community Nursery is a Local Authority school staffed by qualified teachers, nursery nurses and support staff. All staff are highly experienced, who work closely alongside all the children. The staff take time to listen to the children and their interests, which often results in both the children and staff going on their own learning journey together. Every child is important to us and we celebrate diversity. We therefore ensure that everyone is included, everyone matters and all their individual needs are met.


At Houghton Community Nursery there is a great emphasis on the learning environment, as it is seen as the third teacher. Staff often use new, real or interesting objects as provocations for the children to explore and investigate, which helps to deepen their knowledge and understanding. Our aim is that all the children who come here flourish and become independent, confident, caring and responsible young learners, who leave here with a real love of learning.
