Each day in the Nursery we will be choosing a boy and girl in the morning session and a boy and girl in the afternoon session who we believe to be 'Value Stars'. These are children who always make good choices and are role models to the other children in the Nursery. The children which are awarded 'Value Stars' demonstrate the core values at Fielding Primary School and Nursery. The children receive a small certificate and a sticker. Their picture is then placed on our Value Star board in the classroom for all the other children to see. Please watch out and listen for when your child brings home their 'Value Star' award.
Afternoon sessions in the Nursery are very busy times. We have a lot of learning and exploring to do. We always try to start our afternoon sessions at about 1.05pm with Dough Gym. Can you please try and be on time for our afternoon sessions so that your child does not miss out. Please try and be at Nursery at 1pm for the afternoon session. Thank you.
In the Nursery we like to give the children opportunities to explore colour and texture. We do try to supply the the children with aprons for painting and remind them to 'roll up sleeves' when using messy materials. Sometime the children will get grubby when playing outside or they may get paint or other tactile materials on their clothes. We therefore recommend that parents do not send their children to nursery in clothes which they do not want marked or possibly stained . Sometimes good learning means getting messy. Thank you.
Nursery Entry and Exit Routes
The entry and exit points for Nursery, outside of normal whole school pick and drop off times (8.30-9.00am and 3.15pm-3.45pm) ,are via the gates in Coombe Road and along the fenced path which leads into Nursery. For safeguarding reasons please do not use any other route to drop off or collect your children. Thank you.
Early pick up during a session.
If you wish to pick up your child early during Nursery session times we would be grateful if you could let us know in advance, or phone or email. By letting us know about early session collection, children can be ready and waiting for collected. This will mean that you will not be left waiting outside for too long, especially as Autumn turns to Winter. Also as you know the children have lunch between 11.30 and 12.00 and tea from 3.00 to 3.30pm, so it would be best to collect either before or after these times. Thank you for your help and co-operation during these transition times.
We love junk modelling! We would be grateful if you could save any clean cartons,cardboard boxes, plastic bottles and any other wonderful waste materials for us to use in Nursery to make houses and lots of other inspirational creations. Please being your clean recyclable materials into Nursery and hand them to a member of the Nursery team. You may get some of these items back but they will be transformed into something amazing.No cardboard toilet tubes, egg boxes, milk containers or any containers which once contained nuts or dairy please. Thank you.
We have a wide range of toys and equipment at our nursery. Unless we specifically request otherwise your child should not bring any of their own toys to nursery. If they do bring toys with them, we accept no responsibility for any loss or damage to those toys.
Holiday Club will start on July 19th.
