Nursery - All About Me

Nursery – North Ealing Primary School

We ask for the following information to help us to understand and talk with your child during the settling in period.

It is helpful to know skills of parents (e.g. jobs, computing, cooking, sports, reading in another language, artistic, performance e.g. dance) as we talk about these with your children throughout the year.

Settling In - Preparing your child for Nursery
  1. Get to know other children in Nursery
    Talk to your child about getting to know more children and making new friends. Talk about sharing and taking turns.
  2. Be enthusiastic about Nursery & involve your child in preparing for Nursery
    Your child will be influenced by your attitude, if you are positive about Nursery, your child will be too.
  3. Talk to your child about what to expect at Nursery
    Answer any questions they might have, and talk to them about staff, other children, their day am/pm session and what they will be doing before/after the session.
  4. Encourage your child to be independent and to express their needs verbally
    e.g. dressing, tidying up toys and belongings, self-help skills (toilet, washing hands, blowing nose) feelings and emotions.
  5. Be honest with your child
    Sometimes parents think that by ‘slipping away’ they are helping their child to settle in, however, children need to be reassured as to their parent’s movements in order to feel confident and secure. Farewells should always be made.
  6. Allow plenty of time
    Punctuality in coming to and from Nursery is essential in order for the child to feel settled and secure.
  7. Be prepared for changes in your child
    Your child is likely to be feeling a mixture of emotions and tiredness. Take time to talk to them about their day, and to reassure them.
  • Regular attendance enables your child to become used to the routines and faces at Nursery.

Curriculum

The classroom and outside learning environment are organised to provide a range of activities following the revised Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. There are seven areas of learning and development. All areas of learning and development are important and inter connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three areas, the prime areas, are:

  • communication and language;
  • physical development; and
  • personal, social and emotional development.

We also support children in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:

  • literacy;
  • mathematics;
  • understanding the world; and
  • expressive arts and design.

Children learn through play which is a natural activity for young children. We use play as a means of extending skills, interests and experiences. To a young child “play” is “work” and we value their early attempts at all activities. Everything we do provides a base for future learning. At Nursery, it is the process we value, not producing an end product.

All Nursery children need to have had a rich variety of experiences and to have accumulated as wide a vocabulary as possible and clear speech. Learning to read and write follows on from the development of these skills. Pre-reading, Writing and Mathematical concepts are developed through practical activities – sorting, cooking, sand play, water play, construction toys and role play etc..

Our curriculum will be based on various themes, books and children’s interests. These will include activities to develop your child socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically and creatively. We also foster child initiated play and interests.

Punctuality

It is really important that children arrive on time to Nursery every day and are collected promptly.

Settling In

We offer a taster session when staff can explain the routines of the nursery and answer questions. It is an opportunity for the children to explore and become familiar with staff.

Children will usually begin a phased entry. Children will start on different dates/times to allow children to settle easily. You may need to be flexible in the first few weeks of your child starting Nursery.

Dress

Boys and Girls: Navy blue school logo sweatshirt, navy tracksuit trousers, white polo shirt. Sensible, dark coloured school shoes or black
trainers

Snacks

We provide a variety of fruit or vegetables from The School Fruit & Vegetable Scheme. Children will need to bring in a named plastic bottle of water. Milk is provided.

Term Time Leave 

With regret, we will not be able to authorise in term leave unless there are exceptional circumstances. Your child is not compulsory school age but attendance is monitored by the Local Authority and the school. We expect your child to attend 5 Nursery sessions per week and therefore prolonged absence may result in your place being withdrawn.

Illness

Once your child has started in the Nursery, we do expect regular attendance. However, please keep her/him at home if s/he is ill. Young children who are feeling unwell are miserable at school and cannot cope with the activities. Please call the school office 0208 997 2653 or email admin@northealing.ealing.sch.uk to advise us when your child is unwell.

Please keep us up to date with your phone number so that we can contact you if the need arises.

Nursery Fund

We ask for a voluntary contribution of £5 per half term. This covers topical resources, cooking ingredients, seeds for planting, flour for playdough, etc., as well as larger items for the Nursery.

Finally, we ask that children are fully toilet-trained and out of nappies before starting in the Nursery. Please come and speak to the school if you are concerned.

North Ealing Children’s Centre

The Children’s Centre offers stay and play sessions. Further information can be found by visiting the school website.
