Small, nurturing, child centered

Nursery pupil learningThe nursery class, part of our pre-school provision, is set within the school and caters for up to eight children, aged 3–4 years, at each morning and afternoon session.

It provides a caring, warm and friendly environment in which the children feel safe, secure, confident and happy. This encourages all-round development at each child’s own pace.

Children learn through carefully structured play, covering a wide variety of experiences in line with national guidelines for learning in the Early Years. They make their own choices and decisions through the provision of free playtimes, and we also encourage children to work in small-group and whole-group activities, promoting language development and interaction with others.

Nursery children also join in with the activities of the older children. For example, they contribute in the Primary school’s music time each week, and join in PE at the village hall.

At the end of their time at the nursery, children will be well prepared for entry to school.

Sessions are £15 each (morning or afternoon), or £36 for a full day (9am – 4pm) with wrap-around care from 8am – 5pm available, please contact us for details.

Parents can use childcare vouchers via an employer scheme to cover nursery and holiday club fees,  as well as Government childcare vouchers. These can be used for up to  15 hours (or 5 sessions) of childcare.  For those eligible, we are now able to offer up to 30 hours of funded childcare (10 sessions) – please contact us for more information.
