Applegarth’s Governor Led Nursery
Applegarth Primary School is extending its current provision by opening a new Governor Led nursery in September 2023. Our nursery provision is going to be led by an experienced teacher and run by a teacher and Early Years practitioners who have the appropriate qualifications and work to the adult to child ratios required to meet the statutory requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
What does our nursery look like?
Applegarth’s nursery is accommodated within our main school building. The provision areas reflect those available in our existing reception class in school; there will be a clear progression of resources, knowledge and skills from nursery into reception. There are areas such as role-play, sand, water, construction, reading, mark making and lots of outside play with access to our onsite orchard and field. The classroom is equipped with suitable furniture, equipment and resources aimed at nursery aged children. Our children will follow the Statutory Framework for Early Years Foundation Stage. This is comprised of the seven areas of learning that describe everything that children do, see, hear or feel, both child and adult-initiated. These areas are communication and language; physical development; personal, social and emotional development; literacy; mathematics; understanding the world; and expressive art and design.
For children starting with us in September 2023, we are offering a transition session on Thursday 13th July from 9:30am – 11:30am. This is a free session and is aimed at all children (30 hours, morning and afternoon attendees). Children just need to bring a water bottle and a snack if they would like one. We will provide the rest. Please use the pedestrian gate and Mrs Burrell will be waiting to greet you on the playground to show you what to do.
08.50 – 11.50 – Morning session
11.50 – 12.20 – Lunch club
12.20 – 15.20 – Afternoon sessions
Families can either choose morning sessions (every day); afternoon sessions (every day); or the full 30 hours (every day). As a school setting, we have chosen not to offer flexible, broken sessions.
