Nursery Offer for 2018- 2019
Earlswood Nursery is our on site, sessional nursery, situated in a self-contained building beyond the Infant Playground. Our nursery can be accessed via the Children’s centre gate situated on Ifold Road.
Earlswood Nursery is Ofsted regulated and we provide the 15 hour Free Early Education for 3 and 4 year olds. We run two nursery sessions a day with a maximum of 39 children per session.
Morning sessions (The Ducklings Class) are from 8.30am to 11.30am and afternoon sessions (The Chicks Class) are from 12.30pm to 3.30pm during school term time for 38 weeks of the year.
Our admission policy is inclusive: we welcome children from all backgrounds, cultures, religions and those with additional needs. Our Nursery application form can be found below.
The nursery has its own outdoor learning area, part of which has an all-weather shelter. Children choose to play inside or outside during their session. Our nursery is part of the Earlswood Federation of Schools and we regularly use their woodland, garden areas, school halls, library, playing field, trim trail and playground.
At nursery children learn through planned purposeful play and through a mixture of adult led and child-initiated activity. We believe play is essential for children’s development. Children learn by leading their own play and by taking part in play which is guided by adults. Children are given time to select their own learning, adults use children’s interests to ignite their passion for learning.
If your child attends Nursery at Earlswood you will still need to apply for a place in reception and you do not get priority if your child has attended.
