Syresham School Nursery

Syresham School Nursery opened its doors in September 2016 when the school took over the running of the local Pre-School. The Nursery now operates in a brand new purpose built facility. We are open daily from 8.50am- 3.30pm taking children from 2 to 4 years of age. We are proud of the care that we provide for the children in our nursery, enabling them to feel safe and secure within the setting.

About Us

The Nursery is led and managed by a highly trained team of staff. The Headteacher, who specialises in the Early Years, manages the Nursery and is supported by the Deputy Manager who is also the Reception class teacher. This team overseas the planning and organisation of the Nursery while the Playroom Leader and her team run the daily sessions. Staff have close relationships with all of the children in the settings, with children assigned a Key Worker following their settling in sessions. Our staff to pupil ration for 2 year olds is 1:4 and for children aged 3 and above it is 1:8.

Our Way

We provide a safe and welcoming environment where children feel happy and secure. We pride ourselves with the strong relationships that are held between the children, parents and staff.

As the children progress through Nursery they become more independent as we prepare them for life in the main school. All children have the opportunity to take part in adult focussed sessions each day, with phonics, handwriting and number skills being a focus during the week.

The nursery is well planned and laid out to ensure that all areas of the curriculum are covered and provide a rich environment for the children to grow and learn. An outdoor garden provides free flow for the children to independently continue their learning outside with further gardens, climbing frames and playground which provides further space for the children to explore. Our 3 and 4 year olds have the opportunity to work and play in the main reception classroom, as preparation for their transition to school.

The Learning Environment

The new nursery building has a two-year-old room and a pre-school room. The glass doors allow for interaction between areas but gives the children space to grow and learn within an environment appropriate for their age. The nursery is a planned space to enable children to be independent while allowing staff to support the children where and when necessary. 

Key Workers

All sessions are child led, with key workers planning activities that interest the children and that build upon prior knowledge and understanding. All children learn and progress at different rates so our weekly planning sessions allow for learning to be personalised to each individual child. Children are allowed free flow around the nursery room, with adult activities planned on a daily basis. We use an online assessment tool that allows staff to record all aspects of individual child development and learning. Parents have a login to the site so that they can keep track on their child’s development and add their own comments and observations. Parent evenings are held twice a year with your child’s key worker, with all children receiving an end of year report in the July.

Sessions

We offer over 30 hours of child care a week, Monday to Friday 8.50am to 3.30pm with the option to send your child to breakfast club from 8am. The morning start time allows for parents to drop older siblings off at school before the start of the nursery day. Children have the option to  bring a packed lunch or order a hot meal. The nursery offers funding for 2 and 3 year olds and accepts electronic childcare vouchers.
