Foundation Stage Long Term Planning & Curriculum Statements OverviewCTA
Welcome to our Nursery!
We aim to be a friendly, welcoming environment where every child feels happy, safe and secure.
The Nursery children are the ‘Kangaroos’. Mrs Kenworthy is the teacher supported by Mrs Hunt and Miss Goodair.
In nursery, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum with a strong emphasis on the ‘Prime’ areas of learning; Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. These areas are fundamental and work together to support development in other areas of learning called the ‘Specific’ areas of Learning; Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
In nursery, we aim to provide an enabling environment where children learn through play and are challenged, stimulated and engaged. This is planned through fun, purposeful activities, both indoors and outdoors, responding to the children’s interests and stage of development. We are committed to providing positive relationships where children are a valuable member of the team and community. We encourage all children to cooperate and share and to have the confidence to make choices and decisions for themselves.
An information board for parents is displayed in the cloakroom and hard copies of leaflets linked on this page and items of interest for young families are available to read.

(Please note that we open the doors 10 minutes before the end of each session to ensure the children are released in the safest way possible while allowing staff to pass on any messages regarding your child)
Attendance is really important, should your child be unable to attend their nursery session, please inform a member of staff.
It is very important to us that you and your child feel happy and settled at Nursery, therefore if you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to talk to any of our nursery staff.
We are sure your child will thoroughly enjoy their time with us!
EYFS Phonics Meeting for Parents
In the Autumn term we normally hold a parents meeting to share how we teach phonics. Due to the current situation this will be unable to take place so below is the information that we would share with parents.
Our Topic for Autumn 1 is ‘Marvellous Me!’
What are your likes and dislikes?
What do you want to share about you?
We have selected three challenges which we ask all parents and carers to support your child and practise them at home. Once you have had a go, send a ‘wow’ card in to school to say what your child has done to achieve each target, these can then be celebrated with their peers and displayed on the ‘wow’ wall. Challenges and targets are displayed and available in the cloakroom.
