Welcome to Nursery

Our Nursery class is led by our qualified teachers, Mrs Fenner and Mrs Ashley, supported by Miss Taylor.  Together they provide a happy, fun, safe and stimulating environment in which the children are able to thrive.

Nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which is very much centred on developing the unique child.  The different areas of learning are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development – making relationships, self-confidence and self-awareness, managing feelings and behaviour
  • Physical Development – moving and handling, health and self-care
  • Communication and Language – listening and attention, understanding, speaking
  • Literacy – reading and writing
  • Mathematics – numbers and shape, space and measures
  • Understanding the World – people and communities, the world, technology
  • Expressive Arts and Design – exploring and using media and materials, being imaginative

These areas of learning are all incorporated into half-termly learning themes, which adapt according to the needs and interests of the children.

Nursery is part of the Foundation Years 0 to 5 curriculum.  You can find details of the curriculum and what we use to assess the children here.
This useful government document entitled “What to expect, when?” gives parents helpful ideas on how to support their child at home.
