The nursery accommodates 52 three and four year old children on either a part time or full time basis with the option of either paid or using the extended entitlement. We are also able to offer morning places in our provision for two year olds. In nursery we offer the children a structured play environment which gives experience in all aspects of the curriculum. The children learn to work together and to develop as individuals with the support and encouragement of their parents and teachers. They learn social, academic and physical skills which are appropriate to their own stage of development whilst learning to be self-motivating and self-reliant.
We believe that in our nursery the children build on and develop many skills and achievements which they bring with them from their homes and that similarly they utilise their experiences in the Nursery as a sound basis when they transfer to school.
The nursery staff are always available at the end of sessions to talk to parents about any concerns they may have or to discuss their child’s development.
In addition to the free nursery education provision to which your child is entitled, we are able to offer a breakfast club, additional sessions and after school club for which there is a charge.
On Wednesday we had some special visitors! The police came in to see us and tell us all about their jobs. We are learning about people who help us and have found out that police do so much more than just ‘catch bad guys’! The police showed us their uniforms (and even let us try some items on) and talked to us about the equipment they use every day. We even got to sit in the back of the police car and learnt about why they are brightly coloured. Wewere surprsied to find out about the animals, such as horses and dogs, that help the police and want to find out more!
On Thursday 3rd May 2018, the Nursery children noticed that new flowers have begun to grow. We looked at some of the flowers and plants and decided we wanted to grow our own. We watched a video on how farmers plant potatoes using the tractors and had to decide how to grow our own potatoes. We chose to plant them in tyres and crates. We had to be careful with the seedlings when planting them. As the potatoes begin to grow we will need to keep covering them back up with soil. We can’t wait to taste them!
