Welcome to Nursery

Christina Montanheiro and Sandra Speckels are the teachers in Explorers class, they work alongside Lisa Rowan and Sarah Cummings who are Early Years Practitioners.

Nursery is where all the wonderful school learning starts. 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 all these areas of learning in the nursery and outside in our beautiful and well equipped garden.

We use a fantastic on line package, Tapestry, to feedback to the parents/carers about the children’s learning. These include photos or video clips and a brief description of what is happening and the areas of learning that have taken place in that moment. This is a wonderful form of communication between Nursery and Home. You can add pictures and share any learning that is taking place at home too.

In our nursery we have a Key Person system, whereby each child is in a Key Group and has a Key Person. That means that the children and their parents have a point of contact who they can go to for any of their needs. We like to foster good bonds with the childrens 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 help you through this exciting time.
