In a purpose built building on the site of Wrockwardine Wood Infant School, we have a Local Authority Nursery. We have been open since 1998 providing high quality Nursery provision for up to 60 children. The parents of many children in Nursery choose to continue their education in the Infant School.
The Nursery is staffed by a qualified teacher and two qualified Nursery Assistants. The staff are highly competent at delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum tailored to individual children’s needs.
Our Nursery provides a stimulating, safe and secure environment, where we pride ourselves on our warm and welcoming atmosphere. We strive for our children to be strong, confident, resilient and independent individuals. Therefore we provide children with experiences that are engaging, active, exciting and fun.
The Nursery staff care and cater for the children’s unique learning needs through play and planned adult led activities. Adults support children’s development as they learn new skills and knowledge.
The Early Years Foundation Stage is a very important stage because it helps children to prepare for their next stage in education in school so they are successful. Our Nursery provides children with the secure foundations they need to develop lifelong learning skills.
The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is comprised of three prime areas of learning; Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, and Physical Development. These build firm foundations for a child’s learning and development. The curriculum also has four specific areas; Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. These areas enhance children’s learning and strengthen their development.
In the ever increasing technological world we are living in the children have many opportunities to use technology through their play. This includes the regular use of computers, iPads, digital microscopes and a large interactive ‘Touch Board’.
Children in Nursery make extensive use of their dedicated outdoor area as well as accessing the school grounds, school hall for PE sessions and the adventure playground.
