Nursery

The Nursery has excellent classroom facilities with many resources available to children in the form of a role-play area, focused learning activities and arts and crafts etc. The garden provides opportunities for climbing, balancing, riding tricycles and scooters, ball skills, digging in the sand and water, observing the natural world and much more! There are regular trips out to local parks, farms and the theatre at Christmas as well as visits from PC Doris, Edmonton Fire Brigade, Freshwater Theatre Company and Zoolab with their minibeasts.

We follow the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage framework (2021).

The areas of learning have been divided into two groups: Prime Areas and Specific Areas.

The Prime Areas:

  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
  • Physical Development

The Specific Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

The Nursery offers morning and afternoon sessions, both including lunch supervision, for girls who have passed their third birthday. All sessions are fully supervised by Early Years specialist staff.

Morning sessions 8.45am – 12.45pm
Afternoon sessions 11.45am – 3.45pm

Snacks and Lunches

Pupils bring a drink of water each day in a suitable named bottle. They also bring in healthy snacks for break-time, such as fruit or vegetables. Part-time pupils require one snack and full-time pupils will need two snacks. Snacks are eaten at tables and staff encourage the children to drink their water.
