Welcome to Nursery

Here are this year’s topics and activities:

Nursery 17-18 overview of ideas

New classroom

The new classroom will have brand new facilities and access to our purpose built outdoor learning area which we call – ‘Our Classroom under the Stars’!

Our Classroom Under the Stars allows children to:

  • access the outdoors to learn from the environment
  • get messy in the mud kitchen whilst cooking up their favourite recipe
  • perform their latest story on the outdoor stage
  • build dens, tell each other their favourite stories whilst sitting around the camp fire!

Teaching Staff

We have an amazing, dynamic and friendly staff team that go the extra mile for all our children.

‘Staff strive constantly to provide the very best start for the children.’

We are really proud of the excellent learning that takes place every day in Nursery. Our Nursery has a full time qualified teacher planning and preparing the learning for all the children so they are school ready!

30 Hour funding for working parents

From September, The Government will be introducing 30 hour funded places for 3 year olds and we will be offering full day sessions to eligible families, as well as continuing to offer 15 hour places.

“Quite simply the best start we could have given our eldest daughter. She truly thrived at Gisburn Road Nursery and was well ahead by the time she – seamlessly – moved into Reception. There were no worries whatsoever, since all of us knew the teachers, the head and the school. I would not hesitate in recommending the place to other parents and can’t wait for our youngest to start after Easter.” Parent

Nursery admissions

In most cases children will be admitted to the nursery school or class of their parent’s preference. Occasionally however a school or class will receive more applications than there are available places. Parents will be able to seek provision elsewhere and can also request that their child’s name be placed on a waiting list for places at their preferred school or class. Should places become available then these will be offered in accordance with the published admission criteria and not on a first come first served basis.
