Nursery

Welcome to St Martins Nursery

Miss Starkey is our full time Nursery Teacher and we also have Mrs Andrews and Miss Taylor our Teaching Assistants.

In Nursery we use the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) see link below for details. This means that the adults observe the children’s learning and planning is based for their next steps around their interests. Most of the activities we do are child initiated where the adults then use ‘in the moment planning’, where "teachable moments" are discovered through the child's play. This unique way allows us to develop each child at their own individual pace working with their interests. This also allows us to steer the child’s play into which objectives we wish to be assessing the child on. We also use adult led activities so that all areas of the EYFS are covered.

We have indoor and outdoor provision which the children are able to have ‘free flow’ access into all areas and access to a wide range of play equipment.

In our Nursery we have lots of fun and make lots of mess in a safe, secure and caring environment. We help the children to become independent, enthusiastic and inquisitive learners and encourage the children to try new things and challenge themselves.

If you have any questions or queries please feel free to speak to a member of staff before or after your child’s session.
