King's Ford Infant School And Nursery

'Where everyone matters and every day counts'

Welcome to the Nursery

We are a 26 place school Nursery offering part time and full time places for all children aged 3 -4 years.

Our sessions are 8.45-11.45 or 12.15-3.15. 

We are staffed by a qualified Early Years teacher Mrs Illingworth and Miss Avery, a qualified Nursery Nurse (Mrs Bernard) and an experienced learning support assistant (Mrs Diebelius). 

We teach according to guidance from ‘Development Matters’ in the Early Years Foundation Stage. We offer stimulating, playful learning opportunities that cover the areas of the EYFS in a supportive, caring setting.

 Areas that we cover are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

 We encourage children to become independent lifelong learners, through a well planned and organised setting. Children are able to explore, experiment, plan and make decisions for themselves.

Children have access to a spacious outdoor area in all weathers. In the spring and summer this is where we enjoy growing our own fruit and vegetables.

Our new topic of work will be 'light and dark'. We will be thinking about the differences between day and night and what we do at those times of day, and what sort of animals we can see during the day compared to those that come out at night. This topic will also link in with celebrations such as Christmas and new year as we experience the different forms of light at this time - fireworks in the sky and fairy lights on the tree.
