We are so happy to welcome you to Seahorse Nursery and are really looking forward to meeting you and your children.

At Nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.  All our learning is through play, stories, songs and games.  Some of your children will never have been to nursery before so at the start of the year our focus is making the transition from home to nursery as smooth a possible.  The children will start in small groups.  You are welcome to stay with your child until they are settled at an activity. We will always have family photos available for the children to look at and will talk about you as much as needed.  We know that it helps your children to have a consistent routine so we stick to the same routine every day.  The timetable is always on display for the children to access and they quickly get used to it.  You can help your children by talking to them about starting nursery and who their teachers will be and even walking past and showing them the setting.

During the year our aim is for the children to learn to regulate their feelings and behavior so they can make friends and play together.  We want them to have new and enjoyable experiences such as cooking, visiting the large climbing frame and playing at forest school.  They will develop their physical skills through running, jumping, climbing, stirring concoctions in the mud kitchen, threading, painting, drawing and many other activities.  We plan for them to learn and enjoy a range of songs and stories to help them with literacy and maths.  We encourage the children to become independent learners and to this end we let them have access to a range of resources which they are free to choose from.  With everything we do in nursery the most important thing is that your children love learning and have lots of fun!
