WE OFFER BOTH 15 HOUR AND 30 HOUR FUNDED PLACES FOR NURSERY CHILDREN
Please enquire in the school office if you are interested.
Nursery sessions run from 8.45-11:45, Monday to Friday for the children that attend 15 hours.
Children can take up a place in our Nursery after their third birthday.
For parents with 30 hour funding, if you would like your child to stay with us for lunch, you can book this at a cost of £4.00 per day.
Please, can we remind you that your 30 hour unique code will need to be refreshed every 3 months.
The children in nursery will learn and develop ideas and skills through areas of learning including:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
In order to plan efficiently, children’s progress and future learning needs are assessed and recorded through frequent observation. Ongoing assessment is an integral part of the learning and development process. Staff are involved in daily observations and assessments throughout their time in EYFS. They include a balance between child-initiated tasks and teacher led activities in both the inside and outside learning environment. Observations are placed in each child’s learning journey.
Our aim is to enable your child to become self-confident, relaxed and happy in a supportive and caring environment. A large part of nursery is learning to be with others both in work and play. Children learn to socialise, to share and take turns, to put equipment away and to become responsible for their belongings. This helps your child to become a reliable, independent person who will have confidence in his/her own ability.
In Nursery children are provided with nutritious snacks both AM and PM.
If your child has any medical conditions or allergies please ensure that the staff are aware of this.
The children eat their lunch every day in the nursery classroom and we ask that you provide your child’s packed lunch if staying for wrap around care.
Coats, bags and bookbags
Your child will have a coat peg with his/her name clearly displayed to hang up coats/bags and any spare clothing. Please ensure that your child always has an appropriate coat/waterproof jacket in school. Also, can you provide spare clothes just in case of any accidents or children getting wet during water play. Please
We invite you to send your child with a pair of wellies and an all-in-one waterproof (puddle) suit if you would like to. This will allow them to access the outdoor provision in all weathers and we really do enjoy splashing in the puddles!
Please label all belongings clearly with your child’s name.
Homework will be sent home every Friday along with a reading book for you both to share. All homework/reading books need to be returned the following Tuesday.
The Reading Rainbow Challenge
We also would like to introduce a challenge. The Rainbow Reading challenge has been designed to encourage parents to read more books at home with your child and help them develop a love for reading.
If you have any questions, please feel free to speak to any of the nursery team at any point. We will do our very best to help you.
