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!
A big welcome to all of our new children starting nursery this November, we hope you have lots of fun at our nursery, as we have lots of fun things planned for this half term. We would like to express how proud we are of our older children in Nursery who are setting an amazing example to our new children and are helping them all to settle in with the Nursery routine.
This half term we will be planning lots of Maths activities to coincide with Maths Week. We will be looking closely at sorting and counting objects, the shapes of different objects and ordering different things which are found around Nursery, in size order. We have also jumped back into our Read Write Inc Phonics program which we do daily, so have a listen out for your children repeating any sounds when out and about. They thoroughly enjoy this group time.
We will also be learning new stories through our Language Enrichment group sessions. Children will learn how to retell a story using a story map and different actions, to help us remember different parts of the story. We will look at characters and settings of a story and the children will be provided with lots of role play materials to act out different scenes and become different characters within their play.
We are also going to be learning about Bonfire night, we will talk about how to keep ourselves and our pets safe around fireworks, we are going to make Bonfire night treats and create some amazing super sparkly firework pictures.
Towards the end of the term we will start to get ready for the jolly season of Christmas. All children will take part in different craft activities relating to the season of winter and Christmas. Which we all know will be very exciting for everyone!
Things will be very different this year but we refuse to let this get in the way of the opportunities we provide for our children to play, learn and have the most fun possible at Leamington Nursery. We would like to thank you all for working so closely with us to ensure all of our children are healthy, happy and safe and offer our support in any way, to any families who may need us. We have always been and will continue to be here if you need us!
The Nursery Team.
