Welcome to Nursery

Have a lovely half term break and we will see you back in Nursery on Monday 30th October. 

Enjoy the break, remember to get out and about if you can, and talk about where you go and what you see. We will be interested to hear what the children have to say when they return to school. Being able to talk about their experiences out of school is part of the EYFS curriculum.

Thank you to all the parents/carers who were able to make it to their child's Parent Meeting. It was lovely to speak to you all about your children and share their Learning Journeys with you. 

This week we have been reading "Harry and the dinosaurs go to school". 

Please continue to sing to and with your children. Songs such as The wheels on the busOld MacDonald had a Farm and action songs such as Sleeping Bunnies all help to develop listening and memory skills. Nursery rhymes such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Wind the Bobbin Up  develop rhyming skills which are essential pre-reading skills.

If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do speak to any member of the Nursery team at the end of session time when you pick your child up, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues.

It is essential that children have appropriate clothing and footwear when coming to Nursery.  We have fantastic provision which includes lots of opportunities for children to explore and learn.  This means that often children's clothing will suffer because of their messy play experiences.  All the materials we use are natural and will usually wash out of clothing.

Home Visits
During the first two weeks, you and your child will be visited at home by your child's teacher and Early Years Practitioner.  This allows the children an opportunity to meet their key worker in a safe and familiar environment. It is also an opportunity for parents to chat to the staff about your child, including their previous childcare experiences, their general development, their interests and share other relevant information or concerns you have about them starting Nursery.  Any information shared during this session helps staff to plan for your child's first day and ensures the move into Nursery is as smooth as possible.
