At Stoneferry Primary School we have a 26 place nursery for children aged 3 years and upwards in the morning and then another 26 places in the afternoon.
It is staffed by a Nursery Teacher and Nursery Nurse. Attendance at our nursery is for 15 hours of free provision, this can be mornings, afternoons or we can also offer flexibility with days required. Additional sessions can be purchased if required and available.
We can also offer 30 hour of both funded and purchased sessions.
Our Nursery is sited at the front of the school building and has a dedicated outdoor area and large and airy indoor space in which we seek to value and nurture the children’s curiosity, creativity and desire to make sense of the world.
We also give time for their thoughts and ideas, and value their work, their conversations and their feelings. We want to give them the best possible start and our highly experienced F1 team know exactly the skills they will need in order to really fly when they get to school.
The children also have the opportunity to join with the children in the Reception class (Foundation Stage 2) each day during continuous provision. We do this as we know it allows for a smoother transition when officially starting school. The children get to continue to develop their relationships with not only their friends who may have just missed moving into the next year but also this ensures their well being is high and therefore the children are more ready to learn.
We have flexible daily phonics groups in EYFS where children are not capped due to age and are taught at the level which is most appropriate to ensure the best possible outcomes for your child.
Children can join our nursery in the term after their 3rd birthday and parents/carers should approach the school directly and complete an application form.
