Welcome to Nursery 2017-2018

How fast did the summer holidays come and go, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome back old faces and meet new friends. Please remember we have an open-door policy, should you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

This term as we build our new relationships we are focusing upon ourselves and how marvellous we are! We are excited to introduce new areas to the classrooms as well as new staff. We are looking forward to exploring the different areas in Nursery including...

Our phonics challenges, funky fingers, sand, water and our revamped outdoor learning environment.

We pride ourselves in our communication with parents and tweet daily, why don't you follow us on Twitter? You can find the links below!

We will continue with our focus upon ‘Communication and Language’, and ‘Personal, Social and Emotional’ skills, through our daily nurture group sessions. 

Thank you for your continued support, we have so much to look forward to over the next few weeks as well as welcoming our new starters to Nursery. We cannot cannot wait to watch the children grow in all areas of learning! We welcome you into our classroom at any time, to come and engage in our stimulating and enabling environment. Make sure you look out for our masterpieces, and our next step displays.


Nursery session in a morning starts at 8.45am - 11.45am, and the afternoon session is 12.30pm - 3.30pm, we would ask you to wait outside the Nursery gate until a member of the Nursery team comes to let you in. You are welcome to join us at the beginning of each session.

Please can you provide a change of clothes in a named bag which can be left on your child’s peg, as children participate in messy activities or may have an accident. Items to include; socks, underwear, trousers, t-shirts, nappies and wipes if applicable.
