A big welcome to Nursery!

Our Nursery staff are Miss Day (EYFS Teacher), Mrs Dickson (EYFS Teacher Friday afternoon's) Mrs Rendall (Early Years Practitioner), Mrs Bream (Early Years Practitioner) and Mrs Smith (Lunchtime Supervisor).     


 We have a Nursery class for thirty children, with one intake a year (in September) and sessions run from 08:45 – 11:45. In the first days and weeks, ensuring a smooth transition from home to school is of the utmost importance to us, so parents and carers are encouraged to stay until they are comfortable that their child is settled.

We operate a Key Worker system. Each child has a specific practitioner to support them in the morning and when they go home, as well as liaise between home and school. All our staff are very well qualified in working with young children and are very experienced.  As well as their group work, children also have part of the session where they can decide what they would like to do either inside or in our outside area.  With carefully structured classroom areas, the children soon feel relaxed in the Nursery environment and are able to settle down to activities that they are comfortable with. These activities often change and develop as their confidence develops.

We aim to help the children become confident, independent learners and inquisitive and happy children who are eager to engage in a rich variety of experiences.

In the Autumn term, our starting topic this year will be All About Me! Topics throughout the year will be determined from the children's own needs and interests, as well as marking traditions and special days around the world.

All of the Nursery team here at Woodlands are very committed to developing each child's individual potential and feel privileged to be sharing their first stepping stone of education.
