Starting school is an exciting time and we are here to make sure that both you and your child enjoy the process and feel safe and secure in the knowledge that we provide a child centred and happy learning environment in which to begin their learning journey. We understand that it is a big step in a child's, and their parent's, life to start school and we are here to ensure that your child goes into Nursery and Reception feeling settled and enthusiastic to learn. We hope to see you in school to join us in the many open day opportunities we offer and see our Early Years in action.

Your child wil be allocated a key worker they are responsible for supporting your child during their time at nursery.Key workers are essentially a named ‘special person or people’ assigned to supporting you and your child, their role is to:

  • Work with you and your family to gain and share as much information as possible regarding your child and their development. They get to know your child through observation and interaction to discover their likes, dislikes, interests, personalities and preferred ways in which they learn.

  • Document children’s progress and provide a range of play and learning opportunities to develop children’s skills, knowledge and learning capabilities. They support your child (and other children) to engage with others, explore the environment, actively participate in all aspects of nursery routines, both indoors and out and manage any transitions or difficulties they you or child may be experiencing.
