Our Nursery has capacity for up to 120 pupils (60 in the morning and 60 in the afternoon). We operate a two year curriculum cycle as some of our children enter Nursery after their third birthday and may remain for over three terms.
Each child will be assigned a key worker, who will be the first point of contact for the child and their family.
Child-initiated learning forms a large part of our day and involves children following their interests, exploring the engaging environment and being supported in their learning by the teaching staff.
The Nursery curriculum is broken down into seven main areas, which are explained in more detail here.
We compile a Learning Journey which celebrates and tracks each child’s unique experiences. Over time it tells the story about your child’s learning, friends and their experiences with other children and adults. Our staff observe and notice each child as they play and engage with their environment. This helps us to support their individual interests, develop their wellbeing and encourage them to deepen and broaden their learning.
During Nursery we introduce children to Phase 1 Phonics and use ‘Letters & Sounds’ as our principle scheme.
