Welcome to Moredon Nursery.
We are a maintained Nursery offering government-funded childcare for both 15 and 30 hour placements.
For this current academic year (September 2018 – July 2019) our 15 hour placements are broken down into 5 daily sessions lasting 3 hours each. The morning session runs from 8.30-11.30 and the afternoon sessions runs from 12.30-3.30.
For this current academic year (September 2018 – July 2019) children entitled to 30 hours receive a FREE lunch hour everyday with weekly childcare actually totalling 35 hours each week – just a packed lunch needs to be provided! Their hours run from 8.30-3.30 daily.
We are currently looking into altering the timings of the day for the next academic year (September 2019-July 2020) and we hope to confirm these on the open day in a few months’ time (see below for more information).
As we are part of the school and are run by a qualified teacher, we get involved with lots of the whole-school activities and have school expectations. The children wear uniform to school and bring in a bookbag where they can take a book home each day to read. The children have a PE lesson once a week and take part in outdoor learning activities on Welly Wednesday.
Throughout the week, the children have access to a large indoor and outdoor space covering all seven learning areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Children can choose from a wide range of activities including construction, role-play, small world, sand, water, playdough, painting, riding trikes, going on a bug hunt and much more. The children in Nursery take part in a wide range of adult-initiated activities too, regularly focusing on phonics, reading and mathematics.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Nursery
