Play & Learn

A Special Place to Learn, Laugh & Grow

Our staff always concentrate on what the child can do, rather than what they can’t do.

This positive approach to teaching has enabled Cottam Nursery School to achieve LCC’s Lancashire Quality kite-mark – one of the very best nursery awards in the North-West!

“Cottam Nursery is a friendly and happy environment. My child loves it and has made many friends.”

“Warm and friendly nursery with fantastic staff in a rural setting, we love it!”

Quality Learning Resources

A diverse range of tools are used to assist child communication and development.  These include teaching materials, specialist photos, symbols and graphics, keywords in familiar languages and Makaton signing (A type of baby Sign Language for pre-lingual children) all used to educate your child while at the same time, have fun in doing so.

We apply a ‘shared thinking’ policy.

This means that your child gains by us teaching them to ‘problem solve’ while having fun.  New learning resources are regularly purchased to top-up our teaching methods helped when necessary, with access to language translation services.

“A small, very friendly and nurturing nursery where focus on children is total.”
