We are able to provide a caring, stimulating environment which prepares each child for a seemless transition from Nursery to main school in Reception. Children have opportunities to develop relationships with Reception teachers during their time in the Nursery. The children have constant access to whole school resources including enriching and diverse opportunities afforded by whole school events such as multi-cultural and Book Weeks and visits from professional musicians and authors.
Children attend the Nursery for at least two terms before entry into school. They will be offered up to five morning or five afternoon sessions. There are a maximum of twenty six children in each session with a qualified teacher and additional members of staff, one of whom is a qualified Nursery Nurse.
The Nursery has been on the school site since January 1997 and provides a well-structured and exciting pre-school experience for three and four year old children. Ghost Hill Nursery provides the very best emotional and educational preparation for school.
Children benefit from a wide range of learning experiences covering each area of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage. The Nursery offers learning experiences which flow freely between indoor and outdoor areas. A qualified, professional teacher plans learning opportunities in collaboration with Reception teachers to ensure progressive experiences for each individual as they move through the Early Years Foundation Stage. If you would like more information about our curriculum, please get in touch with a member of staff.
A theatre group visited the Nursery and put on a production called 'Where the Light Shines'. It was a story all about a lost light Alien and its journey to get back home. The production was very interactive and the children all really enjoyed it finding it very funny in parts. There was a small workshop afterwards where the children learnt to show their expressions of sad and happy.
We had great fun exploring tadpoles inside and outside of nursery with our adults!
