Welcome to Nursery

We are now in the middle of June! Still as busy as ever with our learning through play.

We are reading books about animals and vehicles this half term. Especially talking about farm animals and tractors and trucks.

Remember that the Mill Cottage Farm experience takes place in school on Monday 25th June. As explained on the letter, children will have the opportunity to look at and hold (if they wish) a variety of animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, goats, pigs, donkey, sheep, and the farm dog! 

We still need more parent helpers to support the children during this visit. You will need to stay for the whole morning session. Please let the Nursery Team know if you are able to help.

Remember - If your child has a new experience or perhaps manages to master a new skill (such as riding a bike), please remember that you can send a photo of them and their achievement to the school office with Nursery in the email subject line. We will talk to your child about their photo and then print it for their Learning Journey.

Many thanks for your continued support.

If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do speak to any member of the Nursery team at the end of session time when you pick your child up, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues.

It is essential that children have appropriate clothing and footwear when coming to Nursery.  We have fantastic provision which includes lots of opportunities for children to explore and learn.  This means that often children's clothing will suffer because of their messy play experiences.  All the materials we use are natural and will usually wash out of clothing.

Home Visits
During the first two weeks, you and your child will be visited at home by your child's teacher and Early Years Practitioner.  This allows the children an opportunity to meet their key worker in a safe and familiar environment. It is also an opportunity for parents to chat to the staff about your child, including their previous childcare experiences, their general development, their interests and share other relevant information or concerns you have about them starting Nursery.  Any information shared during this session helps staff to plan for your child's first day and ensures the move into Nursery is as smooth as possible.
