Welcome to Coral Class!

We have a morning and afternoon nursery session who are taught by Mrs Burnett. Coral class is supported by Mrs Hole, Mrs Marks and Mrs Asplin who are our teaching assistants. Additional support is provided by Mrs Beynon and Miss Cairns. All of the nursery staff are friendly and approachable so do feel free to come and talk to us about any questions or concerns you may have.

The Nursery is bright and well equipped and the children make good use of our outside area with free flow access at all times. Young children learn best through play and our early years practitioners provide the children with appropriate play and learing experiences to develop new skills.

The adult led learning activities are play based and have been carefully planned to provide a range of opportunities to cover the six areas of learning. Child-initiated learning involves children making decisions about what they want to do, where, with whom and what resources they will need. Young children need time to develop, explore and experiment with their ideas and knowledge.

For young children it is important that they are made to feel safe and secure. This is aided by each child having a 'key person' who builds a positive relationship with the child and their family.
