St Petroc's Nursery is a fun, safe, creative and nurturing environment where children are valued and stimulated through a high quality learning environment, reflecting and extending their current, individual interests.
We celebrate the process of learning, making connections, imagining and problem solving, recognising everyone as a unique thinker and artist. We take the lead from individual fascinations and allow the children to inspire us and lead their learning throughout child-initiated playful learning sessions. We balance child-initiated play with short daily adult-led sessions, focusing on storytelling, phonics and number games.
We follow the Early Years Curriculum, providing opportunities in a variety of ways to learn skills in all of the seven areas of learning.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development: Self-Regulation, Managing Self, Building Relationships.
Communication and Language: Listening, Attention and Understanding, Speaking.
Physical development: Gross Motor Skills, Fine Motor Skills.
Literacy: Comprehension, Word Reading, Writing.
Mathematics: Number, Numerical Patterns.
Understanding the World: Past and Present, People Culture and Communities, The Natural World.
Expressive Arts and Design: Creating with Materials, Being Imaginative and Expressive.
In Nursery we use Tapestry to track children's learning. This is an online journal that allows you to access their learning story from home with your own log in and share your own experiences too. We also use Tapestry as part of our 'focus child' system. We value our parents' knowledge and understanding of their own children, therefore, we love to involve our parents in sharing their child's current interests and any special occasions they may have currently going on at home. Staff will extend these interests within our class provision and spend quality time with them, meeting their next steps, 'in the moment'. Children's brains are most active and open to learning when following their own interests. We love watching where it takes us!
We offer 30 hours funding if you are eligible through whole day sessions.
Sessions begin at 8.45am each day.
Morning sessions finish at 11.45am (unless your child is staying all day).
Morning sessions can be extended by booking the lunchtime session which finishes at 12.15pm.
Afternoon sessions start at 12.15pm and finish at 3.15pm.
During this term, the children will explore the importance of working together as a team. We will learn how we use and look after our classroom and how to be kind and caring to our friends. We will also learn about Harvest Festival, why we celebrate it and how it is important to us. We will also explore the making of bread.
