Our Nursery – Our Family – Our Community

Newlands Kids works closely with the Teaching Staff of Newlands Primary School – with over 90% of pupils attending Newlands Primary School having started their education journey with Newlands Kids.



Language and literacy are of personal, social and economic importance. Our ability to use language lies at the centre of the development and expression of our emotions, our thinking, our learning and our sense of personal identity. Language is itself a key aspect of our culture.


Mathematics is important in our everyday life, allowing us to make sense of the world around us and to manage our lives. Using mathematics enables us to model real-life situations and make connections and informed predictions.

Expressive Arts

The inspiration and power of the arts play a vital role in enabling our children and young people to enhance their creative talent and develop their artistic skills.

Health & Wellbeing

Learning in health and wellbeing ensures that children and young people develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, capabilities and attributes which they need for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future.


What Our Families are Saying

“Our children loved the drive, enthusiasm and friendliness of the care team”.

“A rural setting with lots of Outdoor play and learning was ideal for our son”.

“The integration with the Primary School meant our daughter was really looking forward to the transition to Newlands Primary School”.
