A warm welcome from all of the Nursery team.

A typical day in Nursery will consist of; registration/good morning, a short focussed activity (maths or phonics), choosing time indoors and outdoors, snack time and story/singing.

Please remember to…

  • Name all of your child’s clothes, shoes and any items that they bring into Nursey.
  • Drop off and collect your child on time.
  • Encourage your child to look in their tray for pictures, letters, jumpers and models.
  • Hand lunch time cover money in every Monday in a named envelope (30 hour children).
  • Resist the temptation to do everything for your child and encourage them to try and do it for themselves. E.G. dressing and toileting.
  • Remember that no worry is too small, if you are concerned about your child please let us know so that we can help.
