Nursery

Welcome to Nursery

 

Nursery is your child’s first exciting step as they begin their school journey. 

Our main aim during the initial weeks is to ensure that each child feels safe, settled and secure where they can develop positive relationships with those around them. By the end of the first term you’ll be amazed by their confidence and abilities.

The EYFS staff know and understand that children learn rapidly through rich opportunities, where they explore, investigate and discover. Our topic based curriculum provides activities that are engaging, meaningful and fun.  We provide many hands on experiences and with the right balance of challenge and support. We encourage the children to be actively involved in a range of memorable learning experiences which promote creativity, independence and enjoyment.

 

In Nursery we delight in encouraging each child to flourish and grow, enabling them to achieve their full potential.

A visit from somebody special!

During the week beginning 25th September we had a very special visitor come into Nursery.  A baby came to see us so that we could find out and learn more about the 'life of a baby'.  All the nursery children were excited and enjoyed interacting with the baby.

Literacy workshop Friday 3rd March 2017

Nursery's Literacy workshop was a big success.  This was due to the fantastic children we have in Nursery and the support of our enthusiastic parents.

Everyone had a good time and accessed all the activities to aid the children's and parent's learning about the teaching of early Literacy skills.

A big thank you goes out to all who attended and for all the positive feedback.  We hope to do more of these sessions, so watch this space!
