Nursery Class information and resources

Welcome
A warm welcome to our Pre-School nursery page.
We currently offer a morning session, an afternoon session or a 30 hours session where children stay all day.
These sessions are open to children over the age of 3.  Most children will start nursery the term after their third birthday, but there are some exceptions.  Please look at the Childcare Choices website below to find out further information to your childcare entitlement. 
Places are allocated according to birthdate so although the office will acknowledge your application, an offer will not be made until closer to your child's start date.
If you are looking for a nursery place, please contact school, where I will be happy to organise a visit so that you can see us in action.
Application forms can be requested from our school office.
We are an EYFS Unit which means that children share the indoor and outdoor space in all weathers with Reception children.  Children are grouped into small 'Family Groups' led by a Key Person at the start and end of every session.   The rest of the time, the children learn through play supported by the five fabulous staff who work within our Unit.
We encourage a love of reading with our Bookworms sharing library where children choose a book to share at home.
We have a Home Links book where there is information on what your child is learning at nursery and ways to support that learning at home.
