Our Nursery is situated in a self contained bungalow next to the playground. This allows us access to school but also allows us to have an environment that is a link between home and school. We have our own entrance and outdoor area and easy access to Forest School. We also have our own toilet and changing facilities and a kitchen as well as plenty of space for indoor activities.
In Nursery, we follow the Early Years foundation Stage Curriculum. This covers 7 main areas:
We aim to cover these areas as practically as possible and with as much fun as we can!
Nursery is open 5 mornings a week and sessions run from 8.30am to 11.45 am. We accept children in the term following their third birthday or when they are 2 years 9 months if they qualify for funding.
We have a maximum number of 26 children at any one time.
If you would like to apply for a place at our Nursery or would like any further information about admissions please contact the office.
This term we have welcomed 17 new children to Nursery; they have settled in well and are enjoying our activities. We also welcomed Mrs Williams back into Nursery on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
We have been learning about colours this half term; we have learned Big Red Combine Harvester and read The Blue Balloon. For yellow we learned the number rhyme 5 little ducks and had fun counting how many came back each time.
Last week we went to Forest school for the first time, we looked at the Autumn leaves and learned about how to be safe in the area.
We have also loved using our improved garden area; playing in the castle and exploring the sensory path, we still have a lot to do such as putting plants in the pots and making mobiles to hang off the tree but we have made a good start.
After half term we will be carrying on with our colours theme and of course looking towards Christmas.
