Nursery 2018 - 2019

Mrs Dawson

The staff in the nursery are called:

Mrs. Karen Dawson and Mrs Ruth McCann.  Miss Amy Murphy also works in Nursery on Thursday and Friday afternoons. 

We are a small, very friendly 26-place nursery.  We offer both 15 hour and 30 hour Nursery places. 

Our statutory 15 hour provision runs from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon every day.  

Our 30 hour provision runs to fit in with the school day until 3.15pm on Monday - Thursday and 2pm on a Friday (parents can choose to pay for their child to stay until 3.15pm on a Friday).    

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 15 hour nursery provision as parents can choose to pay for additional Nursery hours from 12.00-3:15 pm each week day. This is provided for those children who are not eligible 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.  This afternoon provision is seamless as children are benefitting from additional Nursery provision.  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.
