We have 2 sessions and 4 staff:

  • TA Support – Mrs Gilman, Mrs Fuentes Vaskuez

The morning session is from 8.30 – 11.30 and the afternoon session is from 12.00 – 3.00.

Throughout the year we will use a range of topics and focus books to base our activities on.  There will be focused carpet sessions on phonics, shared reading and maths.
Nursery is your child’s first step into education, so not only do we want the children to add to their existing knowledge and learn new skills, we also want both you and your child to have lots of enjoyable experiences with us!
