Keeping Children Safe
At Fielding Nursery we take the safety of and safeguarding the children as our top priority. We therefore would like to remind parents that once you have collected and signed your child out of the Nursery, can you please exit the Nursery Outdoor Learning Area as soon as you can. Please do not allow your child/ren to access any of the Nursery equipment once they are in your care. Please remember to close the gates to our Outdoor Learning Area as you enter and leave. 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 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.
This week in the Nursery we will be continuing our first curriculum challenge of 'Who lives in my house?' We will be thinking about who lives in their house? What is their house made of? What can I find outside my window?
This week in the Nursery our focus will be on the story 'Rosie's Walk' by Pat Hutchins. We will be thinking about the different parts of the story and what happens to Rosie the hen.
We will be going on our own 'walk' around the school field and look carefully at all the things we can see on our walk. we will also be thinking about making our own maps of how we get Nursery and maps of our Nursery.
We will be choosing the children to go on our 'Values Star' board. When the children get onto the 'Values Star' the children get;a sticker, a certificate to take home and their picture on display on our 'Values Star 'board.
