Welcome to Nursery
We have a Big Question in each class. Our Big Question is;
Why is it good to be me?
This year in Nursery the children will have access to explore various stimuli within the provision. Children will learn to share, create friendships and respect others and our classroom. We aim to give our children a sense of belonging, and encourage them to think about their own personal qualities and ultimately understand ‘Why is it good to be me?’.
- Children are able to use the toilet when they need to, however, please ensure that you pack your child some spare clothes in a bag as accidents can happen. Children should mostly be toilet trained by the time they come to school but we are able to support you with this if your child is not quite at that stage.
- On arrival to Nursery, your child will have a log slice with their name and picture on. This will match the name tag on your child’s peg. Each child has their own coat peg and tray for any belongings they bring to Nursery. Please encourage your child to find their own log and name tags as this encourages independence.
- Snack! We have snack time each morning and afternoon in Nursery. This includes a variety of foods such as: cereal, crumpets, fruit, crunchy vegetables, sandwiches, and crackers. We do ask for a donation of £5 per half term to help us provide lots of different foods for children to try. We also do lots of baking which children love to eat and sometimes, if you are lucky, there is some left to bring home for parents.
- From the start we encourage children to become independent learners, and therefore we believe it is important for them to wash their snack plates and cutlery up, and make their own snack at the table.
