Children have the right to relax and play.


Our Class

There are two nursery sessions each day, morning and afternoon as follows:
Morning session     8.30am – 11.30am
Afternoon session 12.15pm – 3.15pm

30 hour places are available and run over four and a half days.  Parents are given the opportunity to pay for wrap around sessions (where available) at a cost of £15 per session.

When children arrive they hang their coat on their peg and find their name to hang on the tree.   


Children collect 'dojo' points for positive behaviour and when they achieve 10 points, they can choose a prize and certificate in exchange for their points.

'Star of the Week' is awarded to a child that has tried hard in all aspects of school, including being kind to others, good work, following instructions.  Our 'Star of the Week' also gets to take home our travelling teddies - Charlie Bear and Baby Bear.  The children love taking our travelling teddies home for the weekend.

Wonderful Weather

It is important for all children to wear sensible footwear and coat suitable for the weather. We encourage the children to bring their own wellington boots to use outside, which we store in school. When children are this age they are still learning to dress and undress independently, so we ask for them to wear shoes with velcro fastenings so they are easy to take off and put on. Please remember to name all clothing and footwear.

Stay and Play

We love to invited parents to join in with our sessions and 'stay & play' is the ideal time to do this. Each 'stay and play' session has a theme linked to the areas of development and parents are able to spend time looking at their child's learning journey and observations.  Mornng sessions are 10.30am-11.30am and afternoon sessions are 2.15pm-3.15pm.
