Welcome to Nursery!
Our Nursery currently offers all children 15 hours per week, through morning or afternoon sessions. Our sessions run from 8.45am – 11.45am and 12.00pm – 3.00pm. Working parents who meet the criteria could be entitled to an extra 15 hours of free childcare.
Within Nursery we are very lucky to have so many amazing staff!
Our class teachers are Mrs Curran and Mrs Wilcock. Mrs Curran teaches us on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Wilcock teaches us on a Thursday and Friday.
They are both supported by Mr Cleghorn, Miss Oxford and Mrs Harris.
Our learning in Early Years is categorised into seven areas:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Art & Design
A lot of the time in Nursery your child will be playing in the different areas of provision and we will be following their interests and extending their learning through the things that excite them. We also teach the children through different topics, but the activities will change depending on how the children respond to different experiences. Children are naturally inquisitive and we can’t wait to find out where their ideas will take us!
This half term our topic is:
FOOD AND FESTIVALS
We have a box full of wonderful books you can borrow and share with your child. Please feel free to choose a book and change it as often as you like. Don’t forget to stamp your child’s bookmark each time they have finished reading one. Four stamps will earn your child a super ‘dip in the box’.
‘Rhyme Time’ sessions are held on Wednesday at 9.00-9.15am for our morning children and 12.15-12.30pm for our afternoon children. During ‘Rhyme Time’ we practise all the rhymes and songs we have learnt in Nursery and each week we learn a new one and send a copy of the words home for extra practise.
‘Proud Clouds’ are available from our Nursery cloakroom. Please feel free to help yourself to one at anytime. Remember, you can write anything on these that your child has done at home which has made you feel proud/happy. We love to hear anything, it could be that they have learnt to ride their bike, or have enjoyed reading a book with you at bedtime, or maybe they have tided up their own toys.
