Welcome to Oasis Day Nursery - Part of the Whipton Barton Federation
How we are organised
Oasis Day Nursery is located at the far end of Whipton Barton Infant School and on the same green and spacious site as Whipton Barton Junior School in the heart of Whipton, Exeter. We are situated around a large field bordered by woodland almost totally concealed and not visible from the road. Hidden amongst the trees is a Forest School area, large pond and science area, pebbled ‘beach’ area and mud kitchen which is utilised by all children across the Federation.
Oasis caters for children aged between two and four years old. We split our children according to their age into two buildings which are situated adjacent to each other. All of our Nursery children benefit from the expertise of our full time teacher and Early Years Lead, Mrs Kirstin Williams and a team of highly qualified teaching assistants who all act as key workers to ensure that every child gets the individual care they require. During their day with us, children participate in a balance of adult-led learning activities and child-initiated play. We plan an exciting and challenging curriculum based on our observations of children’s needs, interests and stages of development across the seven areas of learning of the Foundation Stage curriculum.
