Welcome to Blenheim Primary Nursery!

Our 39 place Nursery offers fully flexible provision from 8.45am to 3.15pm.   All children are entitled through NEG funding, to receive 15 hours free Nursery education per week, from their third birthday.  Children are admitted at the start of each term, when places are available.   We have a waiting list and you can add your child's name by visiting the main school office and filling out a form, the team can help you with this.

When we are able to offer your child a place, you will be invited to visit the Nursery and meet the staff. This is followed by two members of Nursery staff visiting your child at home. We believe that there should be a strong partnership between home and school, together supporting your child as they make their first tentative steps on their journey through school.  This visit is a good way of us getting to know you and your child and offers you  the opportunity to find out more about what will happen whilst your child is at the nursery   If English is not your first language, you may like to invite a friend to translate for you.

The Nursery is arranged in 'areas of provision' which support the principals of the Early Years  Foundation Stage (EYFS). Your child will be encouraged to explore these areas, developing independence and confidence, taking increasing responsibility for their own learning.  The nursery practitioners observe children as they learn through play, identifying learning styles and  'next steps' for individual children, which in turn informs the changes and enhancement of the provision.  More information about the EYFS  can be found at www.foundationyears.org.uk  as well as the Department for Education website: www.education.gov.uk/publications

Parents are welcome to join their child in play at the start of each nursery session.  Throughout the year, parents are invited to specific events such as story telling, reading and number workshops, family fun days and concerts.  What the children are specifically learning throughout the week is displayed for parents and we are always very interested to hear about what the children are learning at home.
