Howdon Nursery


We have an excellent outdoor facility which compromises of a separate area for babies, a secret garden area and a grassed area as well as soft surfacing. The garden is divided into 5 areas, which can be used separately or opened up. All rooms' have direct access in to the outdoor space and children are offered free flow during the sessions which allows them to choose if they would like to play indoors or outdoors, which maximises learning opportunities.

All rooms have free flow access to the outdoor area for the majority of the session, and appropriate clothing is provided for the younger babies to explore the outdoor environment. All rooms are designed to offer a safe and stimulating environment that provides age appropriate experiences and opportunities, which children can explore holistically to enhance their learning.

All staff hold relevant childcare qualifications including NNEB, CACHE, and NVQ Level 2 and 3. The majority of staff have an up to date Paediatric First Aid certificate and all have Safeguarding awareness. We ensure our training is kept up to date by accessing North Tyneside training programme, E-Learning courses, and in house training.
