Welcome to Nursery
Nusery is where all the wonderful school learning starts. The children in Rainbow Explorers class are taught by Mrs Montanheiro, supported by Lisa Rowan and Sarah Cummings who are both Early Years practioners.
There are seven areas of learning in the early years, Personal, Social and Emotional development (PSED), Communication and Language (C&L), Physical Development (PD), Literacy, Maths, Understanding of the World (UW) and Expressive Arts and Design (EAD). You will see examples of all these areas of learning in the nursery and outside in our beautiful and well equipped garden. We use a fantastic on line package called Tapestry to feedback to Parents and Carers about the children’s learning. Photographs, video clips and examples of learning are uploaded and Parents and Carers can also share learning that is taking place at home. Tapestry proves to be a valuable form of communication between Nursery and Home.
In our nursery we have a Key Person system and each child is in a key Group and has a key adult who is responsible for them. This means that the children and their parents/carers have a point of contact who they can go to if they have any questions or queries . We like to foster good bonds with the children’s parents/carers and welcome any questions or queries you have. We are approachable and understand how exciting and challenging your child’s start in education is for both the child and their parent/carer and we will guide you through this exciting time.
