Hello and welcome to the Nursery class page
We hope you have had a lovely summer and are feeling excited about your child starting Nursery with us. Mrs Savage and I have been very busy getting the classroom ready for you and we cannot wait to get the year started! We completely understand there may be some worries, concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will try our very best to answer any questions you may have and hopefully put your minds at ease!
We will be putting information on the class page throughout the next couple of weeks as we settle the children into Nursery, so please keep checking the page for updates. As the year goes on we will add pictures to show you the different things we are learning and just how much we grow our brains here!

Follow ‘tuff tray ideas’ on Facebook for inspiration on different fun and exciting set ups. Please can I stress it does not have to be set up in a tuff tray. A kitchen tray will suffice or just the floor if it is not messy.
