Little Acorns – Green Oak Nursery
Green Oak Nursery ‘Little Acorns’ is one half of our growing Early Years Department.
Little Acorns is adjacent to our Reception Class in the main school building and benefits from an extensive purpose built outdoor learning area.
Children flourish in a carefully planned yet relaxed environment where learning is fun and all their care needs are met. Our well-resourced classroom facilitates the children to learn at their individual pace and in their own unique way. Each child is allocated a key worker who observes and plans for that child as an individual.
Observations, planning and photographs are collated in your child’s ‘Special book’ and this becomes a wonderful record of his or her learning journey with us.
We work closely with parents, the Wharf Children’s Centre and other professionals to ensure the best possible outcomes for all children. We are available at drop off and collection times for you to chat with and in addition to this we offer a parent’s consultation afternoon each term.
We are open Monday, Tuesday all day and Wednesday morning in term time. Our day starts at 8.45 am and finishes at 3.15pm. Our morning session is 8.45 am -12.00 pm and our afternoon session is 11.45 am – 3.15 pm. We offer the Early Years Free Entitlement (5 free sessions). Space allowing, children are able to start with us throughout the school year.
Children eat their lunch with pupils in the main school hall. They are welcome to bring a packed lunch or choose a lunch from our extensive balanced menu cooked on site.
Children leave our Nursery and enter Reception happy and confident. They are emotionally prepared for the demands of school and have a variety of skills to ensure the transition is seamless.
We welcome visitors at any time and would strongly recommend you visit us to see for yourself just what we have to offer your child and your family.
‘Great oaks from little acorns grow’ and our children are testament to this!
