We’ve taken inspiration from the pioneers of early learning and blended the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and our own SM approach to curriculum.

Our hybrid approach at Grimsbury Manor allows children to reach their full potential at their own pace and in their own time.

Mealtimes at Grimsbury Manor are a time for children to refuel, be sociable and learn about nutrition.

Healthy snacks and delicious fresh food are cooked every day by our onsite chef using seasonal and local produce when we can. Children experience new flavours and look forward to favourite dishes while older children help in our kitchen.

Welcome to our newly refurbished nursery school, Grimsbury Manor in Banbury.  

Every day at Grimsbury Manor we encourage children to be curious and creative in our stimulating learning environments. In doing so, they soon develop a real love of learning.

SM’s experienced team come with a wealth of early years learning insight. We know that every child is different with their own story to tell, so we make sure that your child learns in a way and at a pace that’s right for them.

You’ll find children exploring, marveling and questioning inside our nursery while our outdoor spaces invite imaginative play and problem-solving through adult and child-led activities, all the time bringing children closer to nature.

Come and see for yourself, we can’t wait to meet you.

Nursery for babies image

Babies

Our educators create magical opportunities for sensory discovery and gentle play. We will care for your baby and help them learn and develop new skills, from walking to talking.

After a busy morning of exploring and learning, there is time to recharge. We know how important and rejuvenating naps are, and make sure that when they need it, children can sleep.

Toddlers

As their story begins to take shape, growing toddlers are given the time and space to be more independent, discover and learn. Children make friends, learn to play alongside each other and become more aware of the world around them.

Our experienced educators encourage language development too, starting with simple sounds and building to sentences.

Preschool

With growing confidence and ability, we prepare our preschool children for the learning journey ahead with a focus on phonics, numbers and social skills.

Children spend their final year at Grimsbury Manor preparing for primary school. By this time, they have made firm friendships, have experienced our learning environments in full throughout the year and leave us as independent, curious and confident learners, ready for the next chapter of their own story.
