Welcome to Duckling Nursery
Welcome to Ducklings Nursery!
We hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday and are looking forward to the new school year.
Our teaching staff are Miss Goddard (Butterflies group leader), Ms Abel (Ladybirds group leader), Ms El Ghitaoui (Bees group leader AM) and Mrs Flynn (Bees group leader PM).
Our sessions run at the following times;
Morning sessions 8:40 – 11:40 am
Afternoon sessions 12:30 – 3:30 pm
Please bring your child in on time and collect promptly. This will help him / her settle into the Nursery routine. Please phone the office to let them know if you are going to be late. If someone is picking up your child from Nursery who is not on the “permission to collect” form then please phone the office so that we are aware, otherwise we will not be able to release your child.
If you wish to speak to a member of the Nursery team, please wait until the end of the day once all children have been released to parents – as we start our learning promptly as soon as the children arrive at Nursery.
Our Nursery email address for sending in photos and home learning is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please don’t forget to bring your box of tissues and £1 (for cooking and playdough) every term.
The Nursery Team
Autumn 1 topic
Our Autumn 1 topic is ‘Why do you love me so much?’.
For the first few weeks we will be welcoming and settling the children into the new routines and discussing the importance of rules in the Nursery. The children will be talking about themselves and sharing with the class what makes them special. The book ‘If I could be’ will be used as a prompt for children to talk about their favourite things and choose different things that they would like to have. We will also be discussing the concept of ‘family’ and the children will be sharing family photos in their groups.
You can help your child at home with this topic by asking them about their day at Nursery and what their favourite things to play with at Nursery are. You can also discuss with your child who the different members of their family are, so that they are ready to talk about their family to the rest of their group in Nursery.
