In Nursery there is an exciting blend of adult-led (AL) and child-initiated learning (CHIL). Carefully planned opportunities for children to extend their knowledge and understanding independently are set up in the shared indoor space in the unit and outside in the Foundation Stage garden. All adults in the unit support the children during CHIL, which helps to ensure a smooth transition from Nursery to Reception.

The Nursery children go to whole school assembly on Fridays and have a time of collective worship in the classroom on the other days.

Children are admitted to Nursery in the academic year in which they are 4. The Nursery admits children twice yearly: In September for children born between September and February and in January for children born between March and August. There is a separate Admission Policy and procedure from the rest of the school for entry to Nursery.

The Nursery session runs from 8.45 to 11.45.

The teaching and learning in the Foundation Stage follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS).

There are three Prime and four Specific Areas of Learning and Development.

Prime areas:

Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
Physical Development (PD)
Communication and Language (CL)

Specific areas:

Literacy (Lit)
Mathematics (Maths)
Understanding the World (UW)
Expressive Arts and Design (EAD)

For those wishing to extend their children’s hours, wrap-around care is available through St. Mary’s Pre-school, which operates in the Nursery classroom in the afternoon. This comprises a lunch club from 11.45am to 12.30pm and then an afternoon from 12.30pm to 3.30pm. Parents can choose either one or both options, subject to availability. For more information, including fees and current availability of spaces, please email stmaryspreschool.northchurch@gmail.com
