Greatstone Primary School Nursery

Greatstone Nursery is a 52 place purpose built nursery accommodating children from 2 years old until school starting age.  The Nursery has a full time qualified teacher who is responsible for the daily running of the nursery. Each room has qualified nursery assistants who, together with the teachers, work together to provide a wide range of challenges and experiences through their continuous provision. The toddler room is for 2 -3 year olds and the preschool room is for children who will be turning 4 within that academic year.

Both rooms operate a child initiated, play based environment using ‘In the Moment Planning’ however, within the pre -school room, the amount of teacher led sessions will gradually increase in order to prepare children for the transition into Reception (particularly in phonics and number work). There is good transition between the two classrooms, as well as plenty of opportunity for children to visit the reception class at school, to ensure an equally smooth transition into Greatstone Primary School.
