Welcome to our Nursery
In Nursery, our teacher is Mrs Soulsby. Our nursery assistant is Mrs Bainbridge.
We are set in a beautiful, purpose built building next to the main school and set back off the main road. We offer childcare education to all children from their 3rd birthday.
All 3 and 4 year old pre-school children are entitled to part-time 15 hours of free childcare. We offer flexible hours and sessions during the school day.
These sessions are:
Morning sessions 8.45am-11.45am
Afternoon sessions 12.30pm-3.30pm
Full day sessions 9am-3pm (includes staying for lunch)
We also offer eligible, working parents up to 30 hours free education childcare. To see if you qualify for this please visit www.durham.gov.uk/3/4yearoldnurseryplaces
Children and their parents/carers arrive at nursery and are warmly welcomed by staff at the start of each session. We are very proud of the strong family links and relationships that we create from the beginning of your child’s nursery journey.
Children choose where they wish to play and their day begins! We strive to provide a home-from-home environment where children feel happy, safe, comfortable, confident, loved and nurtured. Our day is led is by the children and their individual interests. The only part of the sessions we come together is for snack time and group time. Our Nursery has most resources available to children at all times. This ‘workshop’ approach helps to create independent, resourceful and confident learners.
Our outdoors area is ample and secure. The doors are open for most of the day and the children can play inside or outside as they choose. As children love to be outdoors in all types of weather, we also have a well-stocked wellie area and full body waterproofs for wet or messy play.
We hope you enjoy looking at the information on our page.
