Welcome to Ivy Bank  Nursery Class!

Welcome to Ivy Bank Nursery

Nursery is the first stage of the Early Years Foundation Stage and the first stage of your child’s education. We cater for children aged 2 1/2 years up until they are 4 years old and ready for the transition into a Reception class. We follow the statutory framework to ensure your children are safe, happy and develop as life long learners. To meet the needs of all children we closely follow the ratio guidance. For children under three there is at least one member of staff for every four children and for children three and over there is at least one member of staff for every thirteen children.

Our Nursery

Our Nursery class is made up of N1 (our 21/2 year olds) and N2 (our 3-4 year olds). Activities are planned and delivered to support your child’s current level of development and to encourage them to be creative and independent learners whilst following their own unique interests.

This is a time for new beginnings, making friends and learning lots of wonderful experiences and opportunities for learning and growing. In the Nursery, we aim to build upon all the good work you have already done with your child during their early years. Developing your child’s Personal, Social and Emotional skills will help them to feel confident and to achieve their full potential in all areas of learning.

Outdoor Area

Here at Ivy Bank we are lucky enough to have a nursery that has access to a woodland walkway within school, plus an outdoor area. As we are outdoors every day we recommend children bring wellies, coats, sun cream and hats dependent on the weather. We also advise a spare set of clothing as we sometimes have messy play.

Come and see us in action

We recommend parents and children come to visit the nursery before they start so they can become familiar with the environment and so that any questions can be asked prior to your child starting the nursery.

If you would like to look around, please do not hesitate to contact us to make an appointment.
