Nursery

Our Nursery is open to children from 2 years of age. We believe it is the ideal preparation for those children who will continue on through their primary education at Sherford Vale.

Our Nursery is an integral part of Sherford Vale. The children have the opportunity to mix and learn with the whole school. Children can start in the nursery from the age of two years old.

The nursery is overseen by a specialist early years practitioner who is part of the wider staff team and the curriculum we offer is designed to meet the needs of all children up to the age of five; in keeping with the National Early Years Curriculum guidelines.

This is achieved through weekly joint planning and times of shared working across the Foundation / Nursery areas.

Priority will be given to voucher holders for the nursery in the first instance.  Additional sessions will then be allocated depending on availability.  Please note that these remaining places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Session times

Session times are as follows:

Breakfast session:               07:30 to 08:45

Morning session:                 08:45 to 11:45

Lunch session:                    11:45 to 12:15

Afternoon session:              12:15 to 15:15

After school session:           15:15 to 17:00

Twilight session:                  17:00 to 18:00

 

These sessions are available with and without vouchers, staying for the lunch session is optional. Children eat lunch in the main school Hall and are supervised by nursery staff during this time.

Our Nursery provision matches the term dates for the Main School.

Intimate Care

If your child is using nappies when he/she starts nursery, please discuss this with the nursery staff.

Parents are asked to supply nappies and wet wipes on a daily basis. A record is kept when the child is changed during the Nursery session. Once it is appropriate to begin toilet training please discuss this with Nursery staff.
