Getting off to a great start....
Our nursery will be led by a qualified teacher and will be supported by experienced early years and teaching assistants who are dedicated to ensuring that learning is at the heart of all that happens in the nursery session - through carefully planned play.
Exploring, questioning and experimenting opportunities are abundant in our well resourced classroom and outdoor learning space.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and support your child to master the skills they need in the earliest stages of their develpment. Your child will mostly be taught through games and play.
The areas of learning are:
There are three intakes a year: September, January and April (after the Easter holidays). We will only be able to accept pupils if there are sufficient spaces.
There are 26 full time equivalent places in our nursery. A full time place = 30 hours and a part time place = 15 hours. We can offer a combination of full time and part time places depending on age and eligibility.
We ask that children wear a basic uniform of school polo shirt with logo and school sweatshirt with logo with your own choice of leg wear. Children should have trainers for indoors and be provided with wellies for outside (these need to be available every day). If you would like your child to wear the full school uniform they may do so .
