  • When you start your day in Nursery parents/ carers are encouraged to bring their child in and either settle their child into an activity (morning) or help them get ready for dinner time (afternoon).

  • Once in school, children learn through a play based curriculum. Children have the opportunity to free flow inside and outside every day in whatever weather making independent learning choices.

  • Children's learning on a daily basis will consist of adult focused activities, child-initiated activities, working one to one or in small groups with adults ensuring all children have a range of learning opportunities throughout their session.

  • Children will take part in a short Communication & Language activity and a Maths group time input every session. This is delivered in key worker groups to suit the needs of your individual child.

  • If your child has claimed 15 hours funding they will have a lunchtime session every day. They are asked to bring in their own healthy, cold lunch. This time in Nursery is supervised by three mid-day supervisors and the nursery teaching assistant.

  • In Nursery we love cooking and baking and therefore do this every two weeks.

  • We have an outdoor learning day on a weekly basis where we will explore the local environment or visit the sensory garden.

  • At Hilton Primary School we appreciate the importance of social and emotional development and therefore teach a PSHCE Jigsaw scheme on a weekly basis.

Snack Money
In Nursery we provide children with a variety of healthy snacks every day. We kindly ask for a voluntary contribution of £1 per week.

Many thanks to our parents/ carers for your continued support!

Parental Relationships
In the Early Years Foundation Stage building positive and long lasting relationships with families is very important to us. We recognise the vital role parents play in being children's first role model and educator in their lives.

Because of this, we value parents contributing regularly in their child's online learning journey on Tapestry.

We also welcome any volunteers in the Early Years Foundation stage and recognise the positive impact they have.

We will always inform you about your child's progress and any matters arising and, likewise, we are always here if there is anything you wish to discuss with us.
