Welcome to the Nursery Class Page!
In the Nursery we all work together to provide a positive, caring, safe and stimulating environment for the children. Our approach encompasses holistic learning encouraging our children to become active learners, exploring the world through a range of indoor an outdoor experiences. The children can choose to build a den, cook up a storm in the mud kitchen, climb a 'castle' or become a character dreamt up from their imagination.
We are lucky to have access to a wonderful woodland area on our doorstep. Influenced by 'forest school' thinking , we support children to go on adventure, take risks and develop an appreiciation of the natural world through sensory exploration.
We continue to develop our outdoor space through the 'Help me Grow' project. We currently have a working party who give their time to undertake mini projects in the early years garden. If this is something you would like to contribute to, our next gathering will be in Autumn Term.

The Nursery Team
Mrs Cummings is the Class Teacher on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Ms Pruden is the Class Teacher on Wednesdays, Thursday and Fridays. We are supported by Mrs Hawkins, Mrs Hoy, Mrs Ansell, Mrs Teale & Mrs Payne.
We love playing with friends in the garden
All children in Nursery have their learning experiences recorded on 'Tapestry,' an online learning journal. When staff complete an observation on a child, it is then uploaded to their journal, often with photos or videos for parents and children to enjoy. Parents receive a notification on their phone or by email and they can then comment on their child's acheivement. We also encourage parents to add photos and descriptions of exciting events that have happened at home which help us to work together to create an amazing diary of the child's time in Nursery.
Messy Play /Cooking Money
Each term we ask for a voluntary contribution of £7 towards the cost of messy play and cooking activities.
Autumn Term's money is due by the end of October, many thanks to those who have already paid.
Please remember to bring a pair of named wellies as we love to play outside in every weather. Just pop them in one of the plastic boxes inside the entrance.
Look at all the lovely things we get to do at Nursery! We paint, we sing, we climb, we explore and all the time we are playing we are learning!
We have available spaces in the Nursery for January 2020!
Children can join us the term following their 3rd birthday, so if you would like to arrange a visit to look around and meet the staff, please call 01480398029 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello Everyone- A quick reminder that it is a good idea to have a spare set of clothes hanging on your peg.
