We offer five morning or afternoon sessions a week. Session times are, Morning 8:45 -11:45am and Afternoon 12:30 - 3:30pm.
30-Hour Offer. If you are a working family you may be entitled to 30 hours free childcare per week. At Grange Park, we can offer a few 30-hour places. We are also part of a childcare hub called Childcare Hub around the Park. This means we work in partnership with other childcare providers in our area to offer a blended offer. This could comprise of 15 hours with us and 15 hours with another provider. Please see the school website for more information.
Rising 3s. We take children the term after their third birthday although we can offer places to children a term earlier if they meet the government criteria for two year old funding.
Admission to the Nursery takes place three times a year: September, January and April. We follow the foundation stage curriculum as set out by the DFE. There are seven areas of learning.
Three Prime areas:
* Personal, social and emotional development.
* Physical development.
* Communication and Language.
And Four specific areas of development:
* Understanding the world.
* Expressive arts and design.
Our day consists of teaching times during letters and sounds and focus activities as well as opportunities for children to follow their own interests during child initiated times.
We keep records of the children's progress in terms of ages and stages of development and hold meetings for parents to look at this progress. We also use an online learning journey called Storypark. This enables parents to contribute to their child’s nursery experience and have immediate access to their child’s nursery day.
In the Nursery we strive to ensure the children's early years’ experience is happy, active, exciting, fun and secure and also supports their development and learning needs.
