Curriculum

Each half term we will be learning through different topics. Through these themes we will cover the seven areas of learning in the Foundation Stage. These are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Uniform

Children are not expected to wear school uniform. We do ask that children come in comfortable appropriate clothing. These should be easy for the children to put on/pull up etc. to develop their independence skills. They will need to bring in a small bag with spare clothing into nursery to hang on their peg. If they are wearing nappies or pull ups. Please ensure we have a supply in their bag, along with wet wipes.

If your child has pierced ears they must only wear gold stud earrings, Please ensure all clothes including shoes are named. 

Nursery Policies

Please navigate to the ‘Our School’ tab and then the subheading tab ‘School Policies’ for the School/Nursery shared policies. 

General Information

The nursery doors open at 9am for the morning & full day children. Parents are encouraged to escort their children into the nursery and say goodbye to them. Our learning starts at 9am & continues for the whole day &. We follow a free flow approach & this includes free flow to the outside area. The staff are all keyworkers to the children.

All activities will encompass different areas of the foundation stage learning. Children are observed throughout the day and observations are recorded for their development.

Some children go home at 12pm and the afternoon children come into nursery at 1pm. Parents are able to enter through the Jaffray Road entrance. There is a camera system on the gate and once the buzzer is pressed, we are able to see who is at the gate and release the gate from the nursery.       The parents will then bring their children to the door and say goodbye here.

At the end of the children’s session parents will enter through the Jaffray Road gate, either through the buzzer gate or open gate at the end of the day and parents are asked to wait in the nursery playground and the children will be brought out to you.

If you need to speak to us about anything else please catch us at the beginning or end of your child’s session or we can make an appointment for you to come in to talk to your child’s keyworker & we hold parent conference days for parents to come in & chat to their child’s keyworker about their development.

We are confident that your child will settle in well and are looking forward to a fun and fulfilling year.

Thank you for your support

The Nursery children have been having a lot of fun over the past few days both inside and outside with parents and other children from reception. We took a few pictures of the picnic fun, which can be seen below.

The pictures include children from nursery joining in with the two reception classes for a teddy bears picnic. We joined in with all the children having some lovely snacks with our bear and sang some songs. We all had a great time.  Also, nursery leavers and parents having fun at White Hall Rec. A lovely feast donated by the parents was had by all. Everyone joined in with fun & games at the park.
