Welcome to Nursery


Autumn Term. We have enjoyed getting to know, and helping to settle, all our new Nursery children and their families.

We have had a busy start to the year, helping the children to make new relationships with other children and their key workers. We focus on developing independence and managing feelings. There is certainly a lot for everyone to take in!

For the rest of the Autumn Term, we will continue to support the children's interests and develop their learning through play. There will be a Curriculum Newsletter given out very soon and it will broadly outline some of the ways which we will be covering the seven areas of learning in the EYFS curriculum. 

We will be continuing to learn to sing and recite Nursery Rhymes, retell the key books we read and develop counting skills through real life experiences of number.

We hoped you all enjoyed the Learning Journey look before the half term break. It was lovely to speak with you all and learn more about your children from you.

Welcome to Rainbow Nursery 2019-2020

This Nursery class page will be updated during the year, so please keep checking back here for further information.

Home Visits take place between Wednesday 4th and Friday 13th September. We look forward to seeing you all again and getting to know you and your child.

What happens during a Home Visit? You and your child will be visited at home by your child's Teacher and Early Years Practitioner. This allows your child an opportunity to meet their key worker in a safe and familiar environment. It is also an opportunity for parents to chat to 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.

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.
