Miss Julie Harrison
Assistant Head - Early Years
The Acorns Nursery provides young children with the chance to socialise with other children in their peer group. To learn through a stimulating, challenging and play rich environment and develop the skills needed to be ‘school ready’.
Our experienced team create a fun, nurturing and safe atmosphere where each child is treated as an individual so that they can thrive and reach their full potential. Our key person practice enables our staff to build strong partnerships with our Parents/Carers, to provide compassion, support, guidance, and home learning opportunities.
We offer pre-school provision to children from 2.5 years old. Our sessions run throughout the school day, five days a week during term time.
Morning sessions run from:
8.30am - 11.30am
Lunch club is available daily from:
11.30am - 12.15pm
Afternoon sessions run from:
12.15pm - 3.15pm
This year in the nursery we have decided to incorporate ‘In the Moment’ planning to ensure the children’s learning and interests are at the heart of what we do. Our aim is to support your child in becoming more confident, independent and engaged in their learning. We will plan and teach, treating each child as an individual and allowing them to achieve their best.
What is ‘In the Moment’ planning?
- A model that allows child initiated learning through play, based on capturing the interests of the children through personalised learning.
- The staff will take into consideration the children’s interests to create meaningful educational experiences through providing an enabling environment, using quality interactions and ‘teachable moments’.
