Nursery 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Nursery
We are delighted to welcome you and your child to our Nursery. We fully believe that Nursery education is essential for your child as this helps them to develop a firm foundation for a successful education.
We are confident that our Nursery curriculum offers children the opportunity to develop their abilities through a variety of learning experiences. We want our children to develop confidence in themselves and acquire skills which will equip them to learn effectively and to establish positive relationships with others.
Nursery education recognises the need for a close working relationship with parents and staff. We hope to strengthen and develop these relationships and work closely with you to ensure we are providing the best for your child.
Highly experienced and qualified staff, stimulate children’s interest and natural curiosity through a range of well planned, interesting, imaginative activities for the children in a stimulating environment both indoors and out.
Our large outdoor area is accessed in all weathers, to enhance the children’s learning in all areas of their development. Here the children are encouraged to access a wide range of good quality play equipment, including a static climbing frame, a large sand pit, a garden and wheeled toys.

Information for Parents
During your child’s time in early years there will be a big focus on learning through indoor and outdoor play. Children learn best when they are active, engaged and exploring.
You can help your child at home by:
- Helping them to learn how to dress themselves.
- Helping them to learn how to feed themselves.
- Sharing stories and discussing the events and pictures.
- Reminding them to bring their book bag with them every day.
- Asking your child to write a list before going shopping.
- Looking at letters and numbers in the environment e.g. door numbers, packaging and on the TV
- Regular counting e.g. counting the cutlery on the table, how many pieces of fruit in the basket, counting steps etc.
