Ludwick Nursery School / Oak Tree CC
Together we are building a better tomorrow
Oak Tree Children’s Centre is an integrated children’s centre working with children 0-5 years. We work in partnership with a private day nursery, health services; Job Centre Plus and local schools.
Ludwick Nursery School provides nursery education for 3-4 year olds at Oak Tree Children’s Centre. It is a wonderful place for young children to learn.
The staff are deeply committed to helping young children learn in the best possible way. The team are very well qualified with a great deal of experience in early years which enables children to make excellent progress. We have a constant drive for improvement. Distributed leadership is embedded and through practitioner learning we put research into practice.
Ludwick has an Enrichment Group for children with severe communication difficulties. Inclusion in the early years is key to our philosophy and we have particular expertise in speech and language support and autism. We aim to provide a happy, stimulating environment, encouraging independence through active learning where every child is valued and has equal opportunities. Creating enabling environments indoors and outdoors, using clay and independent cooking are some key features of our centre.
We use Ferre Laevers scales, Play Therapy and the Massage in Schools Programme to support the children to develop positive relationships with all the adults and children around them.
We are passionate about working in partnership with parents. We have been particularly successful engaging families in the greatest need. We see it as a journey that we make together.
