Welcome to Millfield Nursery Class!
About our Nursery
The Nursery Sessions
Nursery starts at 8.55 for the morning session and finishes at 11.30. The afternoon session starts at 12.45 and finishes at 3.15. If you have older children at the school please drop them off first then bring nursery children into school, when collecting please collect nursery children first!!
It is important to collect your child on time as they may become upset if nobody is there to collect them on time.
If you have any concerns about your child in nursery please speak to either of us. It is often possible to see us briefly when you bring your child in, but please make an appointment if you need more than a few minutes.
Please let a member of staff know if someone other than yourself will be collecting your child.
Please make sure your child has a spare set of named clothes in their drawer, because we use our outdoor environment every day in all kinds of weather the children do get wet and muddy, the children are more comfortable being able to change into their own clean/dry clothes.
Home link is a simple way to keep you informed about what we get up to doing our busy sessions. The book bag needs to be brought into school every day, except Wednesday so that we can put a new activity in for you and your child to enjoy! If you want to tell us anything, or celebrate something your child has achieved please record it in the book.
The Nursery Curriculum
Our aim is to provide a secure, happy environment in which children can build meaningful relationships through a broad and balanced curriculum enabling children to develop knowledge, and a life long love of learning.
Young children learn from everything around them: the people, the environment, the atmosphere, the routine and experiences, all of these make up "the nursery curriculum".
The children are encouraged to be confident, independent learners. During each session the children will participate in “free flow” – enabling them to move freely between nursery, reception class, and outdoors. This valuable time enables all children to develop relationships with all Early Years children and staff.
