The Weatheralls Primary School

Nursery 

Welcome to our Nursery page, below you will find further information about our nursery provision and what we offer to children within our early years setting. We currently have two Early Years Classes which are a combination of Pre-School aged children (3-4 years old) and Reception aged children (4 and 5 years old).

Learning & Development

The three prime areas of learning and development that we focus on with our early years children are:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Person, Social and Emotional Development

Our aim is that during early years your child will:

  • Be happy, confident and secure in their environment
  • Have new learning experiences through play, practical activities, sharing ideas, investigating and exploring
  • Be encouraged toward independence both academically and personally

Our aim is also to work with parents to:

  • Make strong links between home and school so that the children can transfer their learning between the two
  • Involve and support you, as parents/carers, to help your child in their overall development

Our Nursery Setting

We offer our nursery children a large indoor and outdoor learning space with a Qualified Early Years Teacher and highly skilled Early Years Practitioners. 

Children are part of the whole school community with opportunities to take part in school events, use the full range of school resources and access to the Early Years Forest School area.  This allows them to become familiar with school life before they move into mainstream education. 

A Typical Day in Early Years

The school day starts at 8.40am and the doors close at 8.50am for registration.

Children have a healthy snack provided. 

Lunch is between 11.45am - 12.45pm, they have 30 minutes to eat and 30 minutes of playtime on the Reception playground.

The school day finishes at 3.00pm, when children are picked up from their classroom door.

Age of Children in Nursery

Will your child be 3 on or before 31 August 2024?

We take children from the term after their 3rd birthday (September, January and Easter intakes).
