Foundation Stage Nursery

Welcome to our class web page, for Nursery 2022-23. We have a lovely class of ___ children, who love coming to school to learn and play with their teachers and friends. 

Our staff

In Nursery we work to a ratio of 1 member of staff to 13 children. We have two part time teachers (Mrs Hanlon & Mrs Mitchell) and a teaching assistant (Miss Davison). The children are also supported over lunchtime by Miss Pickering our Reception teaching assistant.

Session options

15 hours

We offer morning or afternoon sessions (3 hours) 5 days a week for 39 weeks of the year or we can also offer 2 1/2 full days over 39 weeks. We usually encourage this to be at the beginning of the week or the end of the week. Some parents also choose to pay for top- up sessions costing £14 per session (3 hours). A childcare contract must be signed before these sessions can begin. If flexibility is needed please speak to a member of staff as we can usually accommodate.

30 hours

Our 30 hour children access the setting for 5 full days (6 hours per day). To access this amount of hours we must be given a code. You will need to apply for this the term before they start and then reconfirm every 3 months. More information can be found at https://www.gov.uk/30-hours-free-childcare

All children who attend Nursery for full days will need a packed lunch or given a school lunch if requested. A school lunch will cost £2.20 per day.

Session times

Morning– 9am– 12pm                  Afternoon- 12.15- 3.15pm

Full days– 9am - 3.15pm

What the children need to bring

Water Bottle: Please provide a named water bottle each session for your child to have access to at all times. We also provide milk or water at snack times and lunch time as well.

Spare clothes: Tops, underwear, trousers/ skirts, socks and bottoms. This is particularly important when your child is toilet training but it is also useful for all children to bring a spare set of clothes in case of getting wet/muddy etc.

Nappies/Pull-ups and wipes: If children are still in nappies for medical/ other reasons we ask that enough wipes and nappies are provided for the day.

Sun cream: In the summer we ask for all children to arrive to nursery with sun cream already applied and if they are staying for a full day session we ask for a bottle to stay at nursery to allow it to be reapplied in the afternoon.

Please ensure all items including coats and jumpers are clearly labelled

Your Child’s Progress

Sharing your children’s progress and achievements are vitally important to us. There are a range of ways that we communicate your child’s progress with you:

  • Monthly newsletters/ weekly updates
  • Half termly parent pamphlets- this sets out what we will be learning during that half term
  • Termly parent/ teacher consultations
  • Yearly school report
  • Tapestry– Our Online Learning Journeys: When you filled out your registration forms it would have included a letter about Tapestry and an accompanying consent form. We will create a secure account with the details you provide that enables us to upload photographs, observations and reports relating to your child’s time with us. As a parent this allows you to view exciting achievements via a computer or smart phone.
  • Open Door Policy: All of our staff are happy to answer any queries or questions during drop off and pick up times. More lengthy meeting can be arranged usually for that week or you can also email and phone us at any time.
