KEY WORKERS

 

Every child in Nursery is allocated a key worker.  You will be informed of your child's key worker who will;

  • The key person works alongside parents and carers to ensure that there is continuity of care for the child thus supporting the child’s emotional well-being.
  • The key person observes the child to identify how they learn through their play, their next aspect of development, what their interests are, whether there is any cause for concern or need for extra support.
  • Keep a record of your child's learning journey and update it regularly on Tapestry.

EARLY YEARS CURRICULUM

 

In the Early Years we have developed a wonderful curriculum which caters for the children's interests.  The overview below contains an outline of the topics we cover, but the content of the topics are adapted according to the needs and interests of our children. To find out more information about our EYFS curriculum please see the curriculum map below.

Stay and Play Sessions

Unfortunately we cannot hold any ‘stay and play’ sessions at the moment due to the current pandemic. We hope these will be up and running soon.

If parents can please look at ‘memos’ on Tapestry for extra information regarding phonics and I will be adding some maths information this half term.

Please say hello to our new children at Nursery. 

Helping my child to get ready to start school

 

The Early Years Consultants have produced this useful guidance for parents and carers, to help prepare children for starting school. Please find attached below.  Even after your child has returned to school, you may find some of the strategies useful.

Please have a look at some of the useful websites you can play at home with your children linked to phonics and maths.
