NURSERY WELCOME VISITS
Prior to your child’s start date, you and your child are very welcome to visit our setting to meet the staff and new friends and have a chance to look at your new Nursery. Please call the school office to arrange a time that suits you.
During each session, there will be a wide range of exciting activities supported by adults for your child to access. There will be a welcome to the day, stories, songs, maths activities and lots of opportunities to develop early language skills. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and plan activities to suit everybody’s interests. We play outdoors each day in lots of different weather.
Please label every piece of your child’s clothing so that these can be easily found. We kindly ask that children wear shoes with Velcro to encourage independence whilst at school. Nursery is a very practical place with activities such as painting and gluing so please be understanding about this. We will make every effort to keep your child’s clothing tidy by using aprons. Please ensure your child comes to nursery with an appropriate .
We kindly ask for £1 each Monday for our weekly cooking activity and a healthy snack for the children each day.
WILD ABOUT READING

Your child will have the opportunity to attend Nursery trips throughout the year.
If your child is unwell please call school to let us know. If they are suffering from diarrhoea or vomiting they are not allowed back to nursery until 48 hours has passed from after the last time they have been ill.
If somebody other than yourself will be collecting your child it is extremely important to let us know. Please call school or speak to a staff member at the start of the session. If you are running late, please call the school office on 0151 263 4447.
