Afternoon Nursery

Welcome to Afternoon Nursery!

The Nursery Teacher is Miss Evison.

We have an Apprentice currently working with us and her name is Miss Furniss.

 

Admissions

We admit children in  the term following their 3rd birthday in January and April.

 

Times

The session times are 12.30 - 3.30pm.

 

Nursery Curriculum

In the Nursery we follow the government's Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

This offers lots of opportunities to learn through play. These include creative activities, small world, messy play, games, construction,  music, maths and literacy activities. We  place a strong emphasis on  outside play, both for its learning opportunities and physical well-being. We value the importance of healthy living with a healthy daily snack.

In Nursery we provide a stimulating, nurturing environment which encourages the children to learn valuable social skills  such as  sharing, co-operation, and independence.

 

Topics

We plan our activities on a half-termly basis. Copies are on display on the Parents' noticeboard.

 

 

Achievement Display

We have an achievement display titled "Look what the afternoon children can do!" This celebrates any achievement at home. It can be anything, big or small, from learning a new skill to good behaviour.  Please complete a leaf and we will display it on your child's flower.

 

Libraries

We have children's and parents' library boxes.  The children's box is full of favourite books. The parents' box has lots of ideas to help your child's learning at home. These are 'serve yourself'. Please write your details in the books when you borrow and return items.

 

If you have questions at all about Afternoon Nursery then please do not hesitate to come and speak to Miss Evison. Thank you.
