Nursery 2017 - 2018

Mrs Dawson

The staff in the nursery are called:

Mrs. Karen Dawson and Mrs Ruth McCann.

We are a small, very friendly 26-place nursery which runs from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon for our statutory 15 hour provision.  Children are usually admitted at the beginning of the term after they’ve had their 3rd birthday. We also offer the 30 hour provision for pupils who are in their full Nursery year.  Unfortunately we are not able to offer the 30 hour provision for children who start at January or April but for these children we are happy to split the 30 hours with another provider so that children will do 15 hours with us and 15 hours elsewhere should parents wish to do this. 

Parents can choose to apply for a place in our Reception class during the year, though we cannot guarantee that a place in nursery will result in a place in main school.

We hope your child’s time with us will be as happy and fulfilling as possible. Your child’s education is a three way partnership between child, parent and school. You are the biggest influence in your child’s life and nobody knows your child better than you. By working together as a team we can help your child through this important and exciting journey.

In Nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, learning through play. We have lots of lovely resources in our classroom and outdoor area so we are always busy playing and learning together. The children enhance their learning skills in the following areas:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematical development
  • Understanding of the world
  • Expressive arts and design

Livingstone Primary School offers “wraparound care” for children attending our morning nursery in the form of a playgroup which operates from 12.00-3:15 pm each week day. This is provided for those children who do not qualify for 30 hours if we have spaces available according to adult:child ratios.  We ensure that your child will feel a sense of security and belonging throughout their seamless school day. We guarantee to make your child feel happy, relaxed and safe.  As playgroup takes place in the same learning environment as our nursery it provides wider opportunities to develop self-confidence and motivation, and therefore potential for impact on achievement. Throughout their time with us, your child will continue to develop an astute social awareness and be confident in co-operating and developing good relationships with adults and children. We offer children enriched learning opportunities, inside and outside the curriculum.
