Miss Askew and Mrs Elford welcome you to Leigh C of E Nursery!

In nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Objectives in line with development matters.  Throughout the year we will follow all of the major festivals and celebrations in order to inform our planning but most importantly the themes and learning opportunities  will be directed by the learning and interests that we observe from your children as they 'play'.  In our nursery we always ask the children what they are learning rather than what are they 'playing'.   To find out about our termly curriculum in more detail please follow the link to look at our curriculum maps. Please keep coming back to this page to find out what we have been doing. We will also post any useful information or links that may be of interest to you.


Please take a look below to see what we have been up to this week:

Wednesday 5th June 2019


Welcome back after what I hope was a rested half term!! We have a very full and exciting half term ahead so please keep checking the Facebook page, Marvellous me or the website for things that will be coming up.


All classes within the school are helping to support the children with moving on up to their new class in September.  Independence is one of those areas that the children will be working on and we would like your help with this.  Could you please help your child to be able to take off and put away their own coats and to be able to find their own morning activity.  Could we also ask that parents time in class become more brief to enable the children to settle quickly. If your child does not already could they please work on addressing their own toileting needs and this includes buttons and zips please, and washing their hands.  We thank you for your support with this. 


Although we are expecting warmer weather with it being Summer can you please still bring light coats and sensible shoes as we will use the outdoor area in all weather and if it is very hot can you please apply suncream before you bring your child to school and provide a sunhat.  Thank you.


I have uploaded the photographs from last half term and watch this space for all the learning that will be coming up.  You are also welcome to look at your child's learning journal when you drop off or collect your child from nursery at any time.
