Children can be registered with more than one nursery school or class but can only claim for 15 hours funded weekly.
Normally children should not be admitted to a nursery school under the age of three.
Allocation of a place should be in the order of the waiting lists but admission criteria will apply in the case where the nursery is oversubscribed. Parents will be notified if their child has been allocated a place in nursery by the end of the summer term.
The nursery staff will provide all parents with very useful information on Getting Ready for Nursery, suggestions on helping children to settle in, as well as notes on routines and procedures.
Nursery School Uniform
We have introduced a uniform for the nursery and reception children. It comprises of a practical jogging suit with a white polo shirt. This outfit is optional but is proving very popular with the children. The uniform is no longer available to buy from school. Unit-form on Muirhead Avenue now stock Leamington Little Stars, Nursery and all school uniform.
Just a little reminder to ensure children are dressed appropriately for outdoor provision and have shoes that they can fasten themselves.
What’s going on this half term!
Welcome back! We hope everyone had a lovely break at half term and is feeling happy and relaxed, ready for a busy half term ahead!
We have welcomed some new children this half term and as usual, our older children have been excellent role models, leading by example and helping our new children to settle in to our Nursery routine.
This half term, we will continue to plan activities from the interests of the children and we have started the half term by looking closely at the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
During our Language enrichment sessions, we will continue to immerse the children fully in books the children are interested in through drama, to enhance their learning. This way of working is continuing to be a great success for us as children become completely immersed in our stories, and can re-tell them brilliantly! We have talked about all of the things that Goldilocks did wrong and the ways in which she can make it up to the bears. Goldilocks visited us in our Nursery and told us she was really sorry for all she had done to upset the bears, but the children said this wasn’t enough and she needed to show them how sorry she was. We helped her to say sorry by making porridge and sending it to the bears. We also really enjoyed tasting it ourselves!
This half term we will also be talking about people who are important to us and who help look after us, especially our mum’s. We will be talking about all of the things special people do for us, how they help us and how we can say Thank you.
In our P.E sessions, we are exploring with the small apparatus. We have practised balancing, jumping and climbing and we will continue to investigate different ways of moving and travelling.
