Welcome to our Nursery.

The original Nursery building is now called 'Rainbows' and has all the children who are doing full days, afternoon sessions or a mixture of sessions. Mrs Vicky Olsen will work with your children on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Catherine Barker on a Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday. Our team also includes Mrs Caryn Astbury, Mrs Christina Westwater and Mrs. Lisa Ellis

The new Nursery building is now called 'Sunshines' and is for all the children who have a morning place. Mrs.Nicola White works with the children in the mornings with Mrs.Caryn Astbury who then moves to 'Rainbows' in the afternoon

On this page we will let you know what your child is learning at school and give you suggestions for activities to do at home. We continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and if you want to know more about what your child will be learning, click on this link

smiley    Hello everyone,

A welcome back  both to our families who were with us last academic year and our new families.

We are spending a lot of time teaching the children the rules and  routines of the session to keep them safe and happy. We are also  helping them to access the activities and equipment independently in each area of Nursery.

Our rules:-

To walk when they are inside 

To use quiet voices

To listen to the adults and each other

To be kind to each other - kind words and kind hands

To look after our toys and tidy away when we have finished

The children are rewarded with stickers and certificates when they do well.


We are encouraging your children to be as independent as possible. It would be really helpful if you could practice the following skills at home with your child - putting their own coat on, taking their shoes off and putting them back on again, washing their hands, independence when using the toilet,  and pouring thier own drink. This will then give the staff more time to work and play with your children.

Our stories for this half-term are 'Dear Zoo' 'Owl Babies', 'I'll Always Love You' and 'The Three Little Pigs'. Lots of our activities both inside and out are based on these stories.

We are hoping to set up an outdoor music station in the next few weeks so if anyone has any old pots, pans or spoons that we could have, we would be very grateful.

It would be really helpful if your child could bring a named bag to school so they can take home a book to share and also to put in any letters or pictures/models they have made. Some children are really struggling to carry everything on their way out.

Please remember to label your child's coat, drink bottle, shoes, wellies and book bag.

Next half-term, once all the children are settled, we will have a play and stay session where you can come and do activities with your child. 

Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions .

Thank you

Nursery staff
