Nursery – Nightingale Class

Welcome to Nursery !

We are really proud of our 2-4 years Nursery provision which gets the children in our care off to a fantastic start in their school journey.

Our Nursery is led by Miss Cook. All our early years’ staff are creative and motivated practitioners, who create exciting and imaginative environments for the children.

We firmly believe children’s early year’s experiences shape their view and path for their future learning. We aim to ensure children achieve highly in our setting and are ready for a smooth transition into school.

Our day

Group Time!

We have two group times in each session. Our first group time allows us to:

  • Sign ourselves in
  • Welcome our friends
  • Practice writing our name
  • Wake up with Dough Disco
  • Take part in short, daily phonics sessions.

 We meet again for a focused group session in which we visit our book of the week and engage in a variety of maths, and phonics sessions following from our interests.

During our choosing time, children freely access the indoor and outdoor environment. Each area of the environment is set up with the children’s interests in mind and aims to develop the children’s knowledge and key skills.

 Hours and Sessions

We offer spaces for 15 and 30 hour funded sessions. We provide morning or afternoon sessions, please see times below:

-Morning Sessions: 8:30am to 11:30am
-Afternoon Sessions: 12:30pm to 3:30pm

Children with 30 hours funding can attend all day from 8:30am to 3:30 am and will stay for lunch, there is a charge for this.

50 Things to Do

50 Things to Do Before You’re Five helps children develop the skills, language and resilience needed in school and beyond. Using the same, low or no cost approach, 50 Things to Do Ages Five to Eleven is designed to enable children to become increasingly independent in their own decision-making.
