Our World – New Life
Our World – People who help us
The recommended guidelines for nurseries are: one qualified teacher and one member of staff for every thirteen children. Mrs Nichols is our teacher, who is highly experienced. Chloe Ledger, Audra Conway and Natalie Cilliers (support staff) have years of experience and hold a relevant Level 3 qualification. Catherine McCardle and Lenah Okito have received relevant training and have considerable experience as a support assistants.
Our staffing ratio is currently one adult for every eight children. This varies during the school year but never increases beyond one adult for every ten children. We believe our children benefit greatly from these excellent staffing ratios.
Nursery uniform is not compulsory but many parents are keen to send their children in uniform. Nursery uniform consists of:
Royal blue sweatshirt (winter), Royal blue polo shirt (summer). Order forms are available from the school office or you can download one here.
As the children undertake lots of practical activities and access the outdoor learning environment daily, please ensure your child is dressed appropriately. PLEASE KEEP BEST CLOTHES AT HOME.
As a school we encourage healthy eating and encourage the children to eat healthily. The children receive one piece of free fruit per day (part of a Government scheme)
Children under 5 years of age are entitled to free milk each day. Parents must apply directly to Cool Milk for School (forms available from the school office).
Alternatively parents may provide their child with a drink each day in a named flask. No fizzy drinks are allowed. Drinking water is freely available.
Times of Nursery Sessions
Please make sure your child attends school regularly and on time everyday.
Full time - Monday to Friday 8.45am - 3.00pm
Morning Session - 8.45am - 11.45am
Afternoon Session - 12.00pm - 3.00pm
Please make sure that your child comes to nursery on time as this helps them settle and start the day with ease. Similarly it is important to collect your child on time so that they do not get distressed and worried. If there is a change of plans and you cannot collect your child, please make sure you have called to let the nursery know.
If you have any concerns about your child, please feel free to set a date and time to discuss this with me.
With kind regards
