Welcome to St. Patrick's 

Nursery Page

 

Hello and welcome to our website page from all the staff who work here at St. Patrick's Nursery.

Day in, day out we aim to provide our children with a fun and exciting learning environment in which they feel confident as they learn and are happy whilst developing their independence.

 

We will take great pride throughout the year in sharing our children's exciting learning journey with you.

 

Our Friendly Staff:

Mrs Barry is our Nursery Morning Teacher

Mrs Swan is our Nursery Afternoon Teacher

 Mrs Worthington is always happy to help

and on some days you will also see 

Mrs Finch, Miss Hill, Miss Freeman

and Miss Radcliffe.

 

Together we go above and beyond for all our Nursery children.

 

 If you wish to discuss anything regarding your child's progress or general well-being 

you are more than welcome to come into Nursery and talk to us.

You are more than welcome to speak with any member of staff when you drop off/pick up your child at the Nursery entrance.

If this is not possible then please ring the reception and

ask to speak to us over the phone.

Thank you.

 

We want you to feel totally comfortable and have every confidence in us as you leave your children in our care.

 

Please remember to send your child to Nursery with spare sets of clothing, especially extra pairs of

underwear incase of toilet accidents

or overindulgent messy play.

 

This is very much appreciated.

The snow fell hard as we worked under the shelter. We walked the Nursery path with our adults to see where the snow was landing.

Learning to Learn 

Once the children are admitted into our Nursery we allow them the opportunity to explore our setting and get used to new surroundings. For some children

this settling in period may prove difficult and will take longer than it

would for other children.

Our 'learning to learn' group helps support exploration and provides opportunities

for quality time to be spent on individual targets, caters for the children's

specific needs.

The children access all of our Nursery learning areas during the school week, just the same as all the other children, but their sessions have a little more 

freedom and flexibility.

The 'learning to learn' children are encouraged to listen carefully and follow instruction. They are supported to 

discover what is right and wrong and also

to understand which behaviours are acceptable and which are not.

The children are carefully nurtured and are set personal small step targets which are celebrated daily as they achieve them successfully.

Once the staff feel the child is ready they will move him/her into a 'learning' group and they will begin their very own and unique learning journey

at St. Patrick's.

Take a look at our 'Learning to Learn' children in action:
