We have had a busy week  welcoming back our older children and introducing our new starters to Nursery. Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on settling all of the children in and supporting them to make new friends.

To support your child during their time in Nursery there are lots of things you could help them with at home.

  • encouraging them to dress themselves independently e.g. putting on and taking off coats, shoes etc.
  • talking about the world around them e.g. changes in the weather, signs they see on the way to school etc.
  • counting every day actions and objects.
  • recognising and writing their own name.

Throughout the year we will keep you informed about your child’s learning, but if you have any questions please talk to a member of the Nursery team.
