Introduction

 

Nursery AM Teacher: Mrs Hussain TA: Miss Rafferty

Nursery PM Teacher: Mrs Hussain TA: Mrs Barnes

Our Nursery morning sessions run from 8.30am–11.30am. Our afternoon sessions run from 12.30pm–3.30pm. If you are entitled to 30 hour Nursery provision we run from 8.30am–2.30pm (with the option to pay for an additional top up hour 2.30pm-3.30pm)

 

During their first day please feel free to stay with your child and interact with them within our Nursery environment to settle them in and smooth their transition to our school. If they are happy and settled we would encourage you to leave them. The first few days can be tiring and bewildering even if your child is used to a nursery setting. DON’T WORRY if your child becomes upset as we are used to dealing with this situation.  Children usually stop crying quickly and we can phone you to reassure you later in the session. If any child is in distress for a period of time we will always phone you and will not leave them to cry.

 

Arrival & Departure

The Nursery gates will be open between 8.30am – 8.45am (for morning session) and 12.30pm – 12.45pm (for afternoon session). If your child is late then you will have to sign them in at the office. At home time (11.30am for morning session or 3.30pm for afternoon session) the gate will open once more and we will dismiss your child from the Nursery classroom door. If your child is leaving the Nursery at 2.30pm they will need to be collected from the main office in order to maintain the safety and security of other children.

 

Please let us know in advance if anyone else will be collecting your child. If we do not have your permission we will not release your child to anyone except parents. If you are running late or have a problem picking up please let the office know.
