Nursery

Welcome to Nursery and Pre-school

A place full of excitement and laughter. Every day is an adventure! 

 

Our Nursery children are supported by: 

Mrs Smith (Nursery Teacher)

Mrs Carne (Nursery HLTA)

Miss Glanville (Nursery Teaching Assistant)

Mrs Harvey (Nursery Teaching Assistant)

 

We have a lovely area for learning and exploring. The children are able to access the classroom and outdoor area through child-initiated learning.

 

We access the outdoor area throughout the year so please provide named wellies for your child. We love jumping in puddles, digging in the sand and riding bikes in all kinds of weather.

 

We plan a wide range of opportunities for the children to learn through fun, hands on experiences in both adult led and child initiated activities. We use Development Matters to guide the planning of our activities.  We focus on the three prime areas which are made up of : Personal, Social and Emotional development; Communication and Language and Physical Development.

 

Children will be given opportunities to learn at their own level and we often follow the children's interests to help us plan fun and exciting activities.
