In our Nursery, you will find: Miss Park (Teacher), Mrs Hayes (Teacher) & Miss Shevlane (Teaching Assistant). Teaching Assistants from school, students and parent helpers may also be in the nursery.
The Nursery Day
Children will come to Nursery for 3 hours a day - either a morning or an afternoon session. The morning session is 8.30 - 11.30am, and the afternoon session is 12.30 - 3.30pm.
The morning session starts at 8.30am and finishes at 11.30am. At the beginning of the session, the doors will open at 8.30am. You must drop off your child by 8.45am. At the end of the session, the doors will open at 11.20am. You must pick up your child by 11.30am.
The afternoon session starts at 12.30pm and finishes at 3.30pm. At the beginning of the session, the doors will open at 12.30pm. You must drop off your child by 12.45pm. At the end of the session, the doors will open at 3.20pm. You must pick up your child by 3.30pm.
If you arrive outside of these times, you will need to drop off/pick up your child from the main office.
What will my child learn in nursery?
Throughout their time in nursery, your child will be learning many different things based on our Early Years Foundation Curriculum, which covers seven main areas of learning. These are:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
A large part of the Foundation 1 curriculum takes place outside so we ask that your child wears appropriate clothing and footwear according to the weather each day.
On wet days children must wear a waterproof coat with a hood and waterproof footwear (e.g. Wellington boots). On cold days, they will need a hat, scarf and gloves and on sunny days, a sun hat and safe sandals/shoes. You should also apply sun cream before nursery on sunny days as the outdoor play area can get very hot in the summer. All items left at nursery must be clearly labelled.
We access the outdoors in all weather conditions.
We aim to offer a broad and balanced curriculum, offering the children a range of experiences to help them learn new skills and practise skills they are developing. An important part of this is achieved through cooking. We aim to cook regularly with the children, and therefore kindly ask for a small donation of £2 per term for cooking resources.
It is important for us to work together in harmony and peace. To enable this to happen, we created some ‘promises’ for the classroom to help remind us of ways we can achieve a harmonious and peaceful environment.
We promise to help each other!
We promise to have kind hands!
We promise to listen to each other!
We promise to look after our things!
We promise to try our best!
We promise to share with each other!
