The Nursery

Here at Greenvale Infant and Nursery School, we have a separate Early Years Nursery for children aged 3 and upwards.

We have one main intake a year which is for September. We then offer a place as a casual admission when spaces become available.

Children are eligible for a place in our Nursery during the intake after their 3rd birthday and can attend for 5 sessions in the morning (spaces dependent). 

Sessions run for the following times:

Mornings: 8.45am - 11.30am

The Nursery unit is separate from the main school and has a full range of indoor and outdoor facilities that have been thoughtfully designed with your children in mind to ensure that they offer new experiences and encourange individual development.  The environment is bright and stimulating for young children and filled with a variety of engaging learning resources.  The outdoor play area is fully equipped with facilities to encourage active outdoor play, whatever the weather.  

Within the Nursery we have friendly and experienced staff that love working in Early Years and do everything they can to provide an all-inclusive, welcoming environment. 

Children who attend our Nursery benefit from a full Early Years curriculum.  Daily activities are varied to ensure children are well-stimulated by staff who encourage them to explore and develop the skills they need to play together and enjoy friendships.  In our recent Ofsted report, it was remarked that "Children get off to a good start in the Early Years and make good progress across all areas of the curriculum"

To find out more, or if you would like to apply for a place in our Nursery, please contact the School Office who will be happy to arrange for you to visit the Nursery and go through the application process with you.  

Information:

What to Wear at Nursery

  • All children will be given the opportunity to play inside and outside throughout most of the day, whatever the weather, so it is important that you dress your child appropriately:

       -  When it is cold and wet please dress your child in warm clothes and provide them with a waterproof coat.

       -  When it is warm and sunny please provide your child with a sunhat and apply sunscreen before arrival. 

  • We recommend trousers or leggings so that they are easy for them to manage themselves when going to the toilet. 
  • Please provide sturdy shoes for outdoor play and shoes without laces that are easy for children to open and close themselves.  
  • School sweatshirts and cardigans are available from School Time (optional). 
  • Please remember to write your child's name and class inside all clothing that is brought into school. ‚Äč
  • Children must come to nursery with a spare change of clothes, including underwear and socks.  Please also provide your child with a pair of wellington boots, clearly labelled in a carrier bag. 
  • We teach the children how to manage their self care including use of aprons, rolling up sleeves etc. We offer sand, water and mud play every day, so a change of clothes is vital!

Nappy Changing

  • Children who wear nappies will be changed if and when needed. (The nursery has an appropriate nappy changing facility.)
  • Parents should provide nappies and baby wipes for their child if needed. 
  • Please refer to the school nappy changing policy for more information. 

Toileting Accidents

  • Children who have accidents will be changed by Nursery staff.

  • All children are supported to wash their hands before snack time.

  • Drop off between 08.45am - 09.00am and collection between 11.30am -11.45am
  • Please report to the school office if you are late.

  • Please make sure that your contact details are always up to date. 

Parent Partnership
