  Welcome to Lower Foundation Nursery

The Nursery teacher is Mrs Jenkins who has an excellent support team nursery nurse, known as Miss Flavell.

Things that may be of interest to Parents/ Carers:


Our P.E. days are Tuesday a.m. and Friday p.m. Please could you make sure your child is wearing shoes that they can manage themselves as we encourage them to take off socks and shoes and put them back on. This is to give them a start for when they have to undress for P.E. in reception class.


Our library days are: Monday a.m. and Thursday p.m. Please share these books with your children and encourage them to talk about the illustrations.


Children love baking days, which are: Tuesday a.m. and Wednesday p.m. We ask for a contribution of 50p a week to pay for the ingredients, to enable all children to take home baking or join in tasting sessions.


We try to go out in all weathers and so we would ask you to send a pair of wellingtons, named, for your child to keep at nursery.

Outdoor Learning

In nursery we LOVE playing outdoors and we are very fortunate to have a large outdoor area! The outdoors environment offers the oppertunity to make sense of the outdoor world around them. The outdoor envirnoment can also help with fine and gross motor skills, all round physical development and improved knowledge and understanding of the world.
