High Quality Provision
All of our Nursery staff are fully qualified or currently in training for the NVQ level 3 qualification (or equivalent). We follow the legal requirements set out in the Revised EYFS for adult to children ratio. Most sessions we are overstaffed allowing for more individual support for our children.
The ratio of adults to children is 1:3 for our youngest children under two years old; 1:4 for our two year olds and 1:8 or 1:13 for our four year old children if they are being taught by our qualified teachers.
Mrs Craig, a fully qualified and experienced teacher, is the Early Years Manager. She is closely supported by Mrs Tapping our Nursery Leader and a fully qualified teacher and Miss Smith our deputy nursery leader. Regular planning meetings and on going training for all the staff ensure the highest quality provision for all the children.
Please feel free to phone the school office, pop in or email our extended services email if you have any questions regarding the Nursery provision available for your child. Parents who are interested in visiting the Nursery with their child should phone the school office to make an appointment with Mrs Craig.
Choosing your childcare provision is an important decision and children get off to a great start in our onsite nursery which caters for babies of 8 months until they are ready to start school. We are open for 51 weeks a year offering excellent resources and outstanding flexible care in a happy, stimulating and safe environment – the perfect foundation for learning! Our settings includes a number of exciting outdoor areas together with daily access to the school hall and soft play equipment. All children also have access to our Natural Area where they can have fun exploring in the natural environment.
Mrs Craig (The EYFS Manager) manages the day to day running of the Nursery with the assistance of Mrs Tapping (Nursery Leader) and Miss Smith (Deputy Nursery Leader) and their teams.
