About Our Year Group

Welcome to St Mary’s Nursery. We aim to provide the best possible start your child could have to their school life. Each child is seen as unique with individual talents that we endeavour to develop during their time at the Nursery. We place a strong emphasis on learning through purposeful play and interacting with others in order to develop social skills. The children encounter a team of Nursery staff, all of whom work closely with them to support and extend their learning. We promote turn taking, sharing, being kind to each other and aim to develop skills that encourage a positive disposition to learn. We view outside as a key part of our learning environment. It is an extension of our indoor classroom and as such used widely by the children throughout their time in the Nursery.

Nursery staff: Miss Phipps - Nursery Teacher

Support staff: Mrs Borland, Mrs Jones, Mrs Jennings, Mrs Townsend
