For Parents

Partnership with Parents

Settling In

Our settling in sessions are free and as all children are individuals, our settling in procedure is flexible and can be adapted to the needs of your child,  to ensure that they are happy and comfortable to be left in the nursery.

Key Person

Each child is assigned a key person who will work in partnership with you and will record your  child’s interests, achievements and development in a Learning Journey, to which you are encouraged to contribute  with news and activities your child does at home. Your child’s Learning Journal can always be  accessed by you.

Parents Meetings

We hold parents evenings throughout the year to discuss your child’s progress and also informal parent  meetings, termly, where ideas can be shared and issues discussed.

Community Partnerships

We have links with the village mother and toddler group, the Nine O’clock Club, and we regularly arrange visits. We also work in partnership with our primary school, sharing expertise and  story time sessions with the Foundation Class in the spring and summer terms. Before starting school the children have a week of taster sessions which helps to make transition to school easier.

We are open five days a week

Monday – Friday   8.30am-3.30pm   for over 15-30 Children and

Monday – Friday 9am -3pm for the 15 and under hours children.

We accept Free for 2 and Free Early Education. With help and advice to see if you are eligible for this please click the link below and follow the instructions on this website- www.gov.uk/childcare-calculator

This Term – 6

This term we are learning about all different animals. We are going on a trip to explore and meet the animals at The Rare Breeds Centre as well. We will also be saying goodbye to all our children that will be leaving nursery to start their new adventures at ‘big school’ but we have lots of fun things to do before that.
