Our nursery is a unique setting as it is led and run by teachers. Our nursery is always a vibrant and exciting place in which children can learn. This gives the children a fantastic start and introduction to school life. Our nursery is open from 9am till 3pm. The children are part of the school; they use the hall and the outside areas around the school in their learning.
Outdoor play and continous provision are instrumental to nursery children’s development. Both aspects of which are used and planned for fully each week. Don’t just take our word for it; this is what current parents have to say:

“I am so happy with how my son is doing at Nursery; he has come on so much particularly with phonics, writing and maths.”
“He absolutely loves Nursery. He is so excited to come every day and asks me if he can go for longer!”
“She looks forward to Nursery every day and cannot wait to come in.”
“She is very settled at Nursery and enjoys talking about her experiences at home.”
“Since starting at Nursery he has come on in leaps and bounds and we couldn’t be more pleased with his progress.”

This half term, we have been busy settling into Nursery life! We have started some short carpet sessions, including stories, singing and playing musical instruments. We have also taken this time to learn our new friends’ names, with activities such as ‘roll the ball to…..’

We have been exploring the Nursery outdoor area and have enjoyed playing in the sandpit, using the wheeled vehicles and the using paintbrushes to wash cars. The trampolines and climbing frame have also been very popular!

We are now looking forward to Pumpkin Day on Thursday 1st November to start a busy new half term!
