Welcome to Nursery
Staff : Miss Nelson and Miss Ireland
Welcome to our class web page.
Please check back to see some of the lovely experiences that your child will be having in our setting over the course of the year.
In Nursery, we aim to make each child’s first experience of school warm, homely and nurturing; and a place in which their individual talents and interests are celebrated and extended, to encourage high quality learning. Staff actively, support children in their play and this forms the basis of our curriculum. By supporting play, we are more finely tuned into a child’s development and are able to take learning forward in a way that will captivate the child. We plan so that learning and development are implemented through purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities. We are led by the needs and interests of our children.
In Nursery we learn through play and believe that outdoors should be as much a part of a child’s learning environment as the indoor environment. When children explore the outdoors they learn from first-hand experiences, they will challenge themselves, become successful learners and develop into healthy, confident children.
How we assess your child’s development
During the Nursery year the children work within developmental age bands. If a child is aged 3, they would generally be expected to work within the 30-50 month age band. A child who is 3 would be 36 months and they would possibly be working within the 30-50 month age band. The children often spend a large proportion of the year within the same age band, and this is completely acceptable as the bands are so broad. Please visit the website below for some more information about the curriculum that the children in nursery and reception follow.
Morning Nursery: 8.45-11.45am.
Afternoon Nursery: 12.30-3.30pm
30- hour FREE Nursery Provision for working parents of 3 & 4 year olds, is now available.
15 hours free nursery provision is still available to all 3 & 4 year old children.
Please contact school to arrange a meeting and tour of our provision with Miss Nelson (EYFS Lead).
Early Talk Boost
'Early Talk Boost' is a programme all EYFS staff have received training in this year. We are using it across EYFS to support children to develop their communication and language skills. This also helps us to develop a love of reading from a young age.
More details to follow.
If you have any questions, please talk to any member of the team.
We are very pleased to have Forest School sessions for all EYFS children.
