We are a Nursery Class within St Joseph's Catholic Primary School. We are proud to have the latest resources and equipment to support the development of children from 3 years of age until they start Reception Class. Being part of St Joseph's School allows us to pool our expertise and knowledge, which helps us to deliver a high level of Early Years Education through our Nursery.
Our Nursery staff have many years' experience between them. They have worked in Local community Pre-schools, Montessori Nurseries and Private Day Care Nursery settings.Our joint experiences ensure a high level of provision with which we offer a balanced curriculum of both adult led and child initiated activities. We are also very lucky to be able to benefit from working closely with our Reception class, which ensures a smooth transition for children who stay at St Joseph's when they become school age. We share a foundation stage outside area with the reception children and adopt a free flowing provision during part of our routine. This allows the children to visit either the Nursery or the Reception classes or to join in an outdoor activity.
We are a small Nursery with a family approach, involving parents and other family members in the childrens learning experiences along their Learning Journey. Our Nursery is a purpose built room that flows onto a large outdoor area that provides the children with stimulating outdoor experiences. This year we have a new outdoor playarea which has been carefully planned to support the children as they develope. We are also able to use the main school beautiful grounds for opportunities to explore and investigate our surroundings.
We always welcome visitors to our Nursery and School, so please feel welcome to come along and see us in action.
