Hello and welcome to Nursery. My name is Miss Baker and I am the Nursery teacher.
The children learn many skills while in Nursery. We aim to develop early literacy and mathematical skills as well as developing children’s self– confidence and self- awareness whilst encouraging them to build good relationships with their peers and other adults in the setting. The key aspects of effective learning include; being willing to have a go, being involved and concentrating, having their own ideas and enjoying their own achievements.
Please refer to our class blogs for more information about your child’s learning.
In Nursery we follow the Early Years Framework. We base all of our classroom activities around the children’s individual needs linking to the 7 areas of learning. The Nursery staff develop learning through practical and engaging experiences such as cooking, local visits and trips as well as inviting a range of visitors into school.
We aim to make activities creative and develop a child’s passion for exploring the world around them.
