Welcome to William Elliott Nursery School (WENS)

At William Elliott Nursery School (WENS) we ensure that children are able to learn and develop in a unique environment where there is always something new to learn!

Our Philosophy

Play Learn Grow – in a safe, stimulating and exciting environment.

Young children have lively minds from the start. We strive to make the most of this natural quality by enabling them to experience, investigate, care about others, interact, develop and create. Our aim is to deepen and strengthen children’s natural abilities by providing them with the healthiest environment possible.

Our unique curriculum is delivered through planned play based activities suitable to the stage each child has reached. Children are encouraged to make choices and decisions about a range of activities they would like to be involved in throughout the day.
All state nurseries, private day nurseries and pre-schools deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
At William Elliott Nursery School we cover the “Early Year Foundation Stage” and the “STEM” (a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) programmes throughout the nursery day.
The planning is a balance of both adult-led and child-initiated activities, by which the children will be challenged in order to reach their full potential, but not pushed beyond their capabilities so they can continue to enjoy learning.


Continuous assessments of the children’s learning are carried out through observations in order to inform planning on the next steps in each child’s development through play-based activities.
