Welcome to Nursery

What a great start to the year we have had! All of the children have done extremely well and have settled into the new routines. We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each other and have made some very good friends. This half-term we will be taking part in several special days including Diwali, Remembrance Day, Hanukkah and Christmas.

We strongly believe in the importance of learning through play and supporting your child to become an independent learner. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. For more information about this please read ‘What to Expect and When’ published by 4Children, or speak to a member of staff.

Golden Rules

In nursery we have five Golden Rules;

  • Listen
  • Share and take turns
  • Be kind
  • Walk inside
  • Always tidy up

We talk about these every day and share ideas about what they mean. If children are choosing not to follow the Golden Rules there are a number of steps that all staff follow. If you would like to know more about this please speak to a member of staff.

All of the nursery staff know how important it is to praise your child when they are following behaviour expectations. We use lots of positive verbal praise, stickers as well as putting children’s photos on the sparkly star when they make the right choice. We also choose a Star of the Day at the end of every session. All of this positive praise gives your child a great sense of pride and achievement.

Winter Weather

Please can you make sure that your child has appropriate clothes for the weather every day, including a warm coat.  Please label your child’s clothes. You are welcome to bring a pair of wellies to leave in nursery. If your child wears wellies to school, please bring in a pair of shoes for them to wear inside. You can check the weather forecast on the Met Office Website. 

Please bring in a water bottle for your child so they can get a drink whenever they need it. Please make sure their bottle is clearly labelled with their name.

If you have any questions please just pop in and see us. We are always happy to help.
