The Nursery is set out over three spacious rooms and includes 'free flow' access to our outstanding nursery gardens which allows children to engage in extensive learning opportunities outside. We are very well resourced and provide a highly stimulating, safe and secure learning environments where children are encouraged to explore and investigate, supported by highly trained teachers and early years educators, who develop and extend learning in tune with children's individual needs. Our spaces are organised to support development from 16 months to 60 months of age.
Children can attend our nursery for 15hrs a week. This is a funded place and you can purchase extended hours
Some children may be entitled to 30hrs a week, subject to eligibility.
Please see the childcare choices on the Government website for further information.
Session Times are:
Session 1: 8.30am - 11.30am
Session 2: 12.30pm - 15.30pm
Parent and carers meetings are held the term before joining the nursery to provide important information about starting nursery and answer any questions you may have.
These are an informal way to get to know the staff that will be taking care of your child and to complete registration documents. The home visit is important because it helps your child to make a positive link between home and school.
The induction process is an important period of time in which we work with you to ensure your child settles with the minimum of anxiety. Some children will require a longer induction period than others and we will liaise with you directly to arrange this.
Every child has a Key Person who looks after their welfare in the Nursery and is a main point of contact for parents. The Key Person will make sure your child feels safe and secure and that their individual needs are met. You will register your child with their key person every day. This member of staff will be responsible for communication with you and the observation and assessment of your child's progress and development.
Documenting learning and progress
The Early Years Foundation Stage provides the principles and starting points behind our curriculum which favours a play based approach. Practitioners use frequent observations of children's interests skills and abilities to plan learning opportunities which will support good progress and development. Where children need additional support they will receive this and where they have strengths we will extend their learning.
30 Hour Approach
At Bedworth Heath Nursery School we are offering some 30 hour funded nursery places for our 3-4 year old children in response to the governments initiative to support working parents with childcare costs. The sessions are daily 09:30-15:30 term time only. There is an option to purchase an extra hour of care from 08:30-09:30 daily if required. Our ethos for our 30 hour funded children is:
to give children time to establish themselves as part of a family group and form relationships with their peers and their educators.
to offer key learning through family group times, build on children's interests within the continuous provision and to extend the children's learning and experiences.
to give time for nurture and relaxation as a key factor in the daily routine.
We will ask you to provide a healthy packed lunch for your child and we will build on their social interactions within the lunch time session. If you would like any more information to see if you qualify for 30 hour funding for your child please see the link to the right;
