Nursery 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Nursery
We believe that a great education starts with Nursery. That is why we pride ourselves in offering an outstanding Nursery provision with wonderful learning opportunities to get children ready for school. Here at Parklands, we welcome children after the term in which they turn three years old. This means that children can start at the beginning of each school term- September, January and after Easter.
We are committed to supporting children to achieve, develop and have fun learning through play. Our Nursery class is taught by a fully qualified teacher alongside qualified teaching assistants who will care for your child. We aim to provide a wide variety of play experiences and learning opportunities to encourage language and develop play experiences.
Our expert staff focus on an opportunity for pupils to explore and learn through a wide range of stimulating play. Within this creative, caring, fun and exciting environment, we teach children the initial building blocks for reading, using the foundation sounds of the Read Write Inc programme. This practice and repetition give children a head start in their learning journey.
We encourage, model and teach children how to listen and use their manners. They learn our 3 school rules: Ready, Respectful & Safe as well as our school values.
Our Reception class is right next door to Nursery and both classes share an outdoor classroom and outdoor play area. This means that our staff work closely together enabling a smooth transition into Reception. Nursery children also go to the school hall for their dinner and enjoy eating with their friends as well as some of the Reception children.
The staff in our Nursery class are:
Mrs Wright – Class Teacher (Monday and Tuesday)
Ms Cain – Class Teacher (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)
Mrs Hamer – Teaching Assistant
Morning Sessions – 8:40am – 11:40 am
