Our Nursery provides a bright, attractive and safe environment where children can learn through a wide range of adult-led and child initiated activities. We have an extensive range of equipment and resources to suit the needs of all pre-school pupils and an enclosed outside play area. Our nursery staff ensure that careful planning and appropriate activities provide a rich curriculum designed to enable each child to gain the maximum benefit from their nursery experiences. We aim to provide them with the skills needed to make a confident start when they move on to the next stage of their education.
Parents can claim to use their child's entitlement of 15 hours early years provision to attend our Nursery, alternatively there is a charge per session (for more information please contact the office). There is also a small charge to cover the cost of a mid-morning snack and drink.
Children attend our nursery during the academic year when they reach the age of 4 years. We offer 5 morning sessions each week, with a maximum of 26 children able to attend each session. In line with government recommendations, the standard practice in Norfolk is to give priority to those parents who bring their children to nursery for all five sessions each week as this is considered to be the most effective way of providing appropriate pre-school education. We only have one admission round each September, although children who move into the area and wish to join the Nursery at a different time of the year will be admitted if we have spaces available.
Our Nursery is taught by Miss Whittell, who is supported by Mrs Pilsbury-Gaunt our Nursery Nurse.
