Welcome to Cherry Tree Class (Nursery)
Each day your child will require their book bag and suitable outdoor clothing in school.
Please can you make sure their name is on all uniform and clothing, including coats and shoes as we have found some clothes which unfortunately do not have names in and no-one has claimed them.
Each week we choose a child from The Butterfly Team and The Ladybird Team who has tried really hard. It is specific to that child and can range from 'doing good sitting', 'joining in with singing our song of the week', 'counting using 1-1 correspondence' or 'writing their name'.
Each week the children learn a new nursery rhyme. It has been proven that when children hear and sing nursery rhymes, lullabies and simple songs then we are preparing their ear, voice and brain for language development.
Little donkey. Little donkey,
On the dusty road,
Got to keep on plodding onwards
With your precious load.
Been a long time, little donkey,
Through the winter’s night,
Don’t give up now, little donkey,
Bethlehem’s in sight.
Ring out those bells tonight,
Follow that star tonight,
Little donkey, little donkey,
Had a heavy day,
Little donkey, carry Mary safely on her way,
During the term we like to challenge our children. We offer them the opportunity to extend their learning, trying new activities independently.
From September 2017 we will be offering 30 hours of nursery provision for working parents who qualify for this government scheme. We are also offering all parents the opportunity to purchase extra nursery hours for their 3 and 4 year old children if they require them.
If you require more information please ring the school office on 01623 842683 and either talk to Mrs Goodall (Nursery Teacher) or Mrs Booth (Office Manager).
Nursery Admissions for 2 year olds
From April 2018 Netherfield Nursery now provide nursery sessions for 2 year old children.
15 hours free 2 year old sessions
Parents who meet specific criteria maybe entitled to claim 15 hours free nursery education for their 2 year old child which Netherfield Nursery offers as 5 separate 3 hour nursery sessions over the course of a week.
You need to be in receipt of one of the following benefits to be eligible for free nursery sessions.
Paid 2 year old nursery sessions
If you are not eligible for free 2 year old sessions, then you can purchase sessions at a cost of £15 per 3 hour session. These can be taken on any set days of your choosing, if places are available, prearranged prior to the start of the term. Once these sessions have been booked you will be charged regardless whether your child attends or not.
All payments for paid sessions will need to be paid for at the beginning of the week. You can also make payments in advance.
