We have a range of excellent resources and activities to enable your child to grow, develop and engage in adventurous and imaginative play. Children have access to a fantastic, spacious outdoor area where children are encouraged to use ‘whatever the weather’!
Mrs Goodwin and Miss Thorpe-Kennedy are the key workers for all nursery children, each child is assigned a key worker when they start Nursery. They work closely with you as parents and your child, to form a special relationship, giving your child reassurance and guidance; helping them to settle quickly into nursery life. Each day the children spend time with their key workers where they participate in various activities.
In the Early Years Foundation Stage we use a piece of software/app called Tapestry. It allows us to take photos/videos of your child, link them to the age bands they are working in and then share this with you securely via email. Using this software/app, you will also be able to send photos/videos to Mrs Goodwin which we can share in Key Worker time.
In Nursery your child will bring home a reading book to share with you at home (you can purchase a reading bag through Parent Pay). Your child will choose their own reading book to bring home to share. If you choose to share another book with your child, please write this in their reading record too. Your child will have opportunity to change their reading book every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure you sign your child’s reading record each time you read. Children will read individually with an adult once a week.
The children have access to outdoors whatever the weather so it is important that your child always has a coat and pair of named wellies they can leave at Nursery. We provide outdoor outfits for messy and wet play.
