Welcome to Nursery!


E - Enjoy and achieve  Y- Yearning for learning     F - Fun    

S - Special

We work tirelessly to make our EYFS a SPECIAL place where children ENJOY and Achieve.

Our children have so much FUN, they are always YEARNING for learning.


Mrs Ritchie is our Teacher.

Mrs Ince is our Teaching Assistant in Nursery.



We look forward to beginning our journey together; a strong partnership between home and school helps your child to flourish.

Our priority at this point is that your child will have a happy start to their school life and enjoy each and every day they spend with us.


Life at Nursery

 We have an excellent group of staff working in the Foundation Stage who together take a team approach.  The team consists of experienced and well qualified teachers and teaching assistants.  One of our Senior Leadership Team has responsibility for leading the Early Years Foundation Stage.  Our Reception and Nursery teams work very closely together. Your child will interact and learn with lots of children and our Nursery team of staff during the day.  Our aim is to ensure your child accesses a broad social circle and learns alongside their peers.


Session Times

Our Nursery sessions are:

9.00am - 3.00pm

8.50am - 11.50am

12.30pm - 3.30pm


It is very important for your child’s learning and development that you ensure your child arrives at Nursery on time.  Equally it is just as important that you collect your child on time, as it can be unsettling for him or her when familiar routines are changed.



Our Curriculum

We deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is a framework for teaching children from birth to five years old.  The framework consists of four themes.  These are A Unique Child, Enabling Environments, Positive Relationships, and Learning and Development.

Our aim is for our warm and welcoming environment to provide each individual child with the opportunity to play, develop and learn where parents and children feel valued and involved.

We operate a continuous provision model, meaning that your child will become an independent learner and begin to take responsibility for their own learning and development.

Within the Learning and Development theme there are seven areas of learning.  These are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
  • Communication and Language (CAL)
  • Physical Development (PD)
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World (UW)
  • Expressive Arts and Design (EAD)


We teach your child knowledge, skills and understanding through a topic based curriculum to ensure they access a variety of learning experiences, and secure a good foundation for their life-long learning.  The topics we teach through stem from the children’s interests and passions.  We aim to keep you informed of the topics your child is learning through so that you may be involved and support them at home and in school.


Our Topic this half term:

Knights & Princesses


How can I help to prepare my child for school?

Here are some practical ideas that will help to prepare your child for school that you may wish to make use of.

  • Sharing books, reading with and to your child.
  • Visiting places of interest, talking to your child about them, and encouraging them to ask questions.  Places you may choose to visit: the library, country parks and local nature reserves, museums, on a bus, on a train, on the ferry, etc.
  • Making opportunities to play with friends.
  • Playing with letters and numbers.
  • Singing songs and rhymes including nursery rhymes.
  • Opportunities to be creative including drawing, painting and getting messy.


Our main priority is to make your child feel safe, secure, confident and happy in the Early Years Foundation Stage at William Stockton.
