Lower Foundation Stage
Welcome to our nursery!
We aim to be a friendly, welcoming environment where every child feels happy, safe and secure.The Nursery children are the 'Owls'. Mrs Kenworthy is the teacher supported by Mrs Hunt, Mrs Garlick and Miss Ackroyd.
In nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum with a strong emphasis on the 'Prime' areas of learning; Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. These areas are fundamental and work together to support development in other areas of learning called the 'Specific' areas of Learning; Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
In Nursery we aim to provide an enabling environment where children learn through play and are challenged, stimulated and engaged. This is planned through fun, purposeful activities, both indoors and outdoors, responding to the children’s interests and stage of development. We are committed to providing positive relationships where children are a valuable member of the team and community. We encourage all children to cooperate and share and to have the confidence to make choices and decisions for themselves.
An information board for parents is displayed in the cloakroom and on the noticeboard outside the Nursery playground. Hard copies of leaflets linked on this page and items of interest for young families are available to read.
