Learning in the Nursery:

In the Foundation Stage children learn best through first-hand experience, by doing things. We as adults call it play. Play is children's work, and you can help by taking an interest in your child's early achievements. Painting and drawing, junk-modelling and collage are important evidence of their skills and stages of development. When they tell you their news about school they are giving a gift of language and speech so please take time to listen.


We will provide music, games, story sessions, materials for creative activities; opportunities for role-play, pretend games and equipment and expertise for the practice of physical and mental skills. And being a part of a vibrant class we are developing the social skills needed for dealing with life in school such as learning to share adult attention with other children in the class and with each other.


Entry to the Nursery:

Dropping off - children need to be dropped off at the SECOND set of double gates on Friary Lane. This entrance is next to the Nursery garden. Please wait outside the gate until a member of staff comes to meet your child.
