Northleigh CE Nursery
Guided by a qualified teacher who over sees our nursery we have a highly qualified and experienced team of staff. We aim to provide an environment in which the children develop self-esteem, in an atmosphere of mutual respect, whilst learning to appreciate and understand others. We encourage independence and promote an ethos of listening, sharing, concentration and pride in their achievements. In everything we do, we are developing the children’s speaking and listening skills and giving them the confidence to know when and how to seek help.
The children in Nursery experience whole class learning time every day as well as a daily session of Read, Write Inc and listening games. They also have adult-guided sessions and child-initiated activities available every day in both the inside and the outside areas. The teaching and activities available to the children are topic-led, with a particular focus on the children’s interests.
In Nursery, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This covers 7 main areas:
- Personal Social and Emotional Development.
- Physical Development
- Communication and Language
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
Our nursery children have the opportunity to link with our Reception class daily including access to the shared Early Years spaces. By the time they start school our nursery children are familiar with the setting and transition is smooth. The children are very much part of our whole school family.
We accept 15 hours universal funding for 3 & 4 year olds, and the additional 30 hours funding for working parents.
