The Nursery School provides nursery education to around 150 children aged 3 and 4 years old and to approximately 60 two year olds. There are also some additional places for children with special educational needs and disabilities. The school is different to other early years settings in that it has a high number of qualified and experienced early years teachers & early years practitioners, high priority is given to continuing professional development.
Children are based in one of our four nursery classrooms – Orange, Green, Yellow and Blue – where the learning is led by a qualified Teacher supported by an Early Years Practitioners. (Click here to see the section on our Nursery Classrooms) All the classrooms have access to our garden so that children’s learning is divided equally between the indoor and outdoor environment. (Click here to see the section on Our Garden).
Rainbow Room, Purple Room, and Red Room have Day Care places for children aged 2 to 3 years old and are also led by a qualified Teacher supported by Early Years Practitioners and Early Years Support Workers.
Although our site backs on to the grounds of St Werburgh’s Primary School, and we have close links with the school, we are a separate setting with different Headteachers and an entirely different staff team. It is important to note that registration or enrolment at St Werburgh’s Park Nursery School is neither a pre-requisite nor a guarantee of a place at St Werburgh’s Primary School.
