In our setting we aim to provide a caring, happy and stimulating environment to encourage and support children’s learning. We recognise the importance of staff, parents, carers and children working together in partnership to ensure the best possible start for the children.
Therefore before starting, there is an opportunity for all new foundation stage children to be visited at home by Laura Cheeseman and a member of her team. This will help make transition into Nursery easier and happier for your child and will provide another opportunity for us to share information and for you to ask any questions you may have about our provision and routines. These home visits will be approximately 20 minutes long and will take place early September, January and April.
Transition Sessions & Visits
We are committed to ensuring all of the changes children go through during their school life are seamless and successful. Moving to a new nursery or onto school is one of the biggest transitions a child will make and therefore we aim to ensure that children are prepared for this move by making this transition as smooth as possible. In addition to ‘home visits’ we visit children in their current nursery settings and set aside dates for new parents and children to attend one of our transition sessions in the month of July.
During a transition session:
- Your child will be free to engage in play and take part in planned activities
- Your child will enjoy meeting our current nursery class and their new peers and friends
- You will meet our team of enthusiastic teachers and support staff that will be happy to answer any queries you may have.
There will also be dates set aside in October, November and December for potential parents to visit our school prior to applying for their child’s Reception place.
