St Wilfrid’s Nursery Class

Welcome to our Nursery class. Our teachers are Mrs Clarke and Mrs Conway.

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Talbott and Mrs Ward.

We have a happy and busy Nursery where we enjoy lots of fun activities and share in planned and purposeful play opportunities.

All children access the seven Areas of Learning through provision in our indoor and outdoor environments and their progress is recorded through their comprehensive Learning Journeys to which parents add their own “Parent Voice”.

Some Nursery reminders to take note of:

*   Nursery Session times are :- Morning – 8.45 to 11.45am

                                               Afternoon – 12.30 to 3.30pm

Please be prompt when delivering and collecting your child.

If you are delayed at home time, please telephone school to let us know so staff can reassure your child while we wait.

* Safeguarding – please keep us up to date with your collection arrangements as we are unable to release your child to anyone not written on our collection list.

Please inform us immediately of new phone numbers (as we need to be able to contact you at all times) or change of address etc.

Absence - please inform the office staff of the reason for your child’s absence preferably by a phone call on the first day they are away ( 0121 675 3319 ).

* If your child is unwell with sickness and/or diarrhoea please keep them home from Nursery until all symptoms have cleared up. We adhere to NHS guidance of 48 hours clear after the last bout of sickness and/or diarrhoea.

* Change of Clothes – we would appreciate if there is a bag on your child’s peg with a set of spare clothes in case of any accidents.

* Outdoor Clothes – please ensure your child comes to Nursery with a coat each day and footwear suitable for the weather conditions as we go outside during our daily sessions whatever the weather!

Please label everything with your child’s name!

* Items from home – Please do not send your child to Nursery with any expensive toys, clothes, jewellery etc. which may get lost or damaged.

We also ask that toys from home are not brought into Nursery. We will send requests for specific items home on a flyer or will let you know at collection time!

* Uniform – must be worn daily please with shoes not trainers.

Please tie up long hair and ensure only stud earrings are worn.

We are always here to support and reassure you and your child at this important step in their lives. Please feel free to talk to us, share your worries or concerns, ask questions or let us know about a change in home circumstances etc and we will do our best to help where we can.
