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.”

What a fabulous year we have had. It has been so busy, we are all exhausted!. Pumpkin Day was so much fun (and a little bit messy!) with all the mummies, daddies and grandparents. We had a lovely Christmas trip to the farm, learnt how to be an elf at Elf School and met Father Christmas. We even got to choose our own present from the workshop.

In Spring we read and acted out lots of traditional tales. The children never seem to tire of The Three Little Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff or Goldilocks. Story Book Day was great fun and the parents enjoyed playing under the parachute more than us! We also planted lots of things in the garden and have enjoyed eating our carrots, potatoes, peas and strawberries. 

In Summer we had Sports Day with lots of different races, a Paddington picnic with the rest of the school and of course our Celebration Assembly where the children sang beautifully for all the visitors.

Nursery Paddington has had so much fun going on lots of visits with the children. He has been on holiday, days out, sleepovers, shopping, putting up Christmas trees and eating lots of marmalade sandwiches.

An amazing year with the most amazing children.
