Welcome to Nursery...
Hello and welcome to our Nursery at Whitefield Community Primary School. This may be your and your child's first experience of an educational setting for them... and what a wonderful place it is. Here we are proud to offer an exciting and interesting curriculum that is fostered from a love of play, curiosity to know more, awe and wonder, forest school and rich play and learning experiences to give your child the best start to their formal education. We have a new unit which is fit to burst with exciting opportunities for learning, as well as: a forest, an outdoor play area, playground for EYFS and access to the wider school grounds and spaces, like the outdoor classroom.
The Nursery team are: Mrs Goddard, Miss Edge (EYFS Leader), Miss Warner and Mrs Wilkinson. We are looking forward to working with you and your child/ren.
All children attend the morning session 8.45 -12.00 am (although this can be flexible according to how you would like to use your 15 hours!) There is also an option for children to attend full day sessions 8.45 - 3.10 pm. If you are interested in 'topping up', please contact our school office 0161 766 2852 for more information and advice.
Every Friday, the children pop on their wellies and explore the forest area which is part of our incredible school - Make sure you come along to one of our parent/carer sessions so you can explore the excitement of a welly walk too!
Your child will be given a school book bag which they will need to bring in to school every day, this is so that they can proudly share the Whitefield name as they come to and from school, and most importantly so that they can choose a class library book to take home once a week. We will also put any important information you may need inside and your child's work when we are sharing some of our learning with you.
If you have any questions, you are unsure about anything or you would just like to introduce yourself, our EYFS are happy to help and love to meet and chat to parents regularly. Please see one of the team who will be happy to help.
