Welcome to Nursery
Nursery Class 2022 - 2023
Hello everyone, welcome to our nursery class web page. We hope that you find the information on here useful and it gives you an insight into some of the learning and experiences that take place in our class.
Welcome to the new academic year!
It's the start of a new school year and in Nursery we are welcoming back some children who started nursery in the previous Spring and Summer terms and we also have lots of new children starting our school. We would like to welcome our new children and their families to our class and school community. I'm sure the children will settle really well and make lots of new friends.
During this first half term we will be supporting the children to follow nursery routines and to establish positive relationships with the adults and each other. The adults in class will complete some short assessment activities with the children in order to plan for individual needs and we will use the children's interests as a stimulus for our learning.
We are pleased to be able to offer 30 hours nursery education (full time) for those eligible parents. Places are limited and if you think that you meet the criteria set by the government please feel free to speak to me at school.
This first half term is always very busy and it is important that we support all the children with transition and settling into nursery. I am here to offer help and guidance and I am available to speak to parents with any concerns or queries that you may have.
Thank you for choosing our nursery and school for your child.
