Teacher - Nursery
Three and four year old children have many similar characteristics, but each child is unique. They have varying experiences and needs arising from their personal development, family, and other cultural backgrounds. As qualified Early Years practitioners, we are aware of the characteristics of young children and their stages of development and are able to cater for their individual needs.
HOW PARENTS CAN HELP US
- Each child must be brought to and collected from the nursery by an adult. For the child’s safety, we must be informed if someone different is collecting them. A password is distributed at the start of the year and any new adult collecting from Nursery, must provide this password at the time of collection.
- Please inform us of any change of address or telephone number so that we can always contact you if necessary, during the school day. If your child goes to a childminder, please ensure we have their name, address and telephone number. Please also let us have an emergency contact number.
- Best clothes are not suitable for Nursery. We do provide aprons, but we do have some messy activities and accidents happen easily.
- In the case your child gets wet or has a toilet accident, would you please provide a change of clothes to stay on their peg. A draw string/PE bag is preferred.
- Children must wear suitable clothes for all weathers. Nursery children enjoy outdoor play, so a waterproof coat with a hood and wellies, must be in school at all times.
- If your child is likely to be absent from Nursery, please phone the school office or speak to a member of the Nursery staff.
- If your child is asthmatic, or has any other medical conditions, it is important that we are informed.
- If you have any concerns regarding your child, please discuss these with us. Any conversations will be confidential.
