Nursery School

The consultation on the proposal to federate Warrington Road and Ditton Nursery schools has now taken place, the decision of the Governing Body Member's from both schools is to proceed with the federation.

We will keep parents updated of the progress of the federation throughout.

Places are available for 3 & 4 Year old children to start in January 2018.
Please share with your family and friends.

Nursery sessions run for 3 hours and during this time the children experience a range of opportunities. As you arrive with your child you are welcomed to come into nursery and help them find their name card for self registration. The sessions follow a daily routine which include small group time, adult directed and child led activites.

During the sessions the children have the opportunity to explore the many areas of provision within the nursery, both inside and out, with the support of our highly skilled and experienced teachers and early years practitioners. Ongoing observations of all children enable the staff to plan a range of activities, experiences and resources to ensure all children continue to learn in the context of their individual interests and levels of development.

Small group time offers the chance for children to listen to stories, learn new songs and rhymes, share their experiences with each other and learn about phonics and numbers at an age appropriate level.

The sessions are planned to maximise every learning opportunity for the children and it is therefore important that everyone arrives promptly for the start of the session.

We run half termly stay and play sessions when we invite you in to stay with your child for the first hour of the session to share the fun with them.

We also hold termly parents meetings when you are invited in to view your child’s individual learning journal and discuss their progress with their key person.


If you would like to help out on a more regular basis please speak to your child’s key person or the head teacher.
