Hello and welcome to our Nursery, here at Kirk Fenton Primary School.
We are a part of the school, sharing our outdoor area with the Reception class and providing 15 hours of engaging education a week. We are able to accommodate up to 26 children per day, accepting children the term after their third birthday. From 8:50am-11:50am, we offer rich learning opportunities, based on the children’s interests. We support children in becoming independent and motivated individuals, with a can do attitude and real love for learning.
Our emphasis is on learning through structured play and first hand experiences, inside and outside of the classroom. Our environment is carefully planned to develop each child’s understanding across the seven areas of Learning and Development and the Characteristics of Effective Learning. These include:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Playing and exploring - engagement
Active learning – motivation
Creating and thinking critically – thinking
