Our School Day
We offer a selection of part time sessions for those children entitled to 15 hours funding:
Morning session 8.40 a.m. to 11.40 a.m.
Afternoon session 12.20 p.m. to 3.20 p.m.
Please note on Tuesdays the session times are 8:40 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 3:20 p.m.
We also offer full time sessions for those children entitled to 30 hours funding:
8:40 a.m.-2:40 p.m. (parents need to provide a healthy packed lunch for children to eat in nursery).
Wrap around care is available for children that finish at 2:40 to extend their day until 3:20 at a cost of £3 per session.
Arrival at School
Children should always be handed personally to a teacher - parents are welcome to come into the classrooms and have a few words with the teacher at the beginning or the end of the session. Alternatively, staff are always happy to arrange an appointment at a suitable time to discuss any issues or concerns.
Please ensure that your child arrives at nursery on time. Arriving late can be unsettling for children and may be disruptive to the class routines.
Departure from School
Please collect your child promptly. Young children get worried if they are left after all the children have gone home. We do understand that occasionally parents may be running late and ask that if this ever happens, parents phone school to let us know, so that we can reassure your child that you are on your way.
For safety reasons, only authorised adults will be allowed to collect a child from school and these adults must be specified beforehand. If there is an unexpected change of person collecting, please inform the school by telephone as soon as possible, as staff will not let your child go with an un-authorised adult without confirmation. Parents are also asked to nominate a "password" when their child starts school that needs to be given to staff at collection time by anyone new that is collecting, as an extra security measure.
Children will participate in a range of child led activities and will have free flow access to both our indoor and outdoor learning areas. Please make sure children are wearing appropriate clothing for the weather and please be aware that children may get messy in our different areas of learning as they explore and participate in a wide range of opportunities.
If you know your child is going to be absent from nursery then please contact the school office on 0121 360 2199.
Please also inform us of any planned absences such as medical appointments or holidays in term time. A holiday form is available to complete from the school office for this purpose.
