Children at Westonbirt Schools can begin their wonderful learning journey in the thriving and vibrant Nursery from the age of 2.
Your child will be provided with a warm, nurturing and stimulating environment. Through free play, some formal learning (phonics and numeracy) and outdoor experiences, creativity is encouraged along with discovery and confidence, fun and friendships.
A whole range of exciting and dynamic extra-curricular activities are offered with specialist teachers including music, Physical Education, swimming and dance.
I think the ‘family’ atmosphere that is created is wonderful.
Nursery play an active and valued role in many of the wider school events such as the swimming gala, sports day, the Harvest Festival and the Nativity play, exposing them to the enriching and rewarding experiences of Westonbirt from the start. The children also make the most of the beautiful outdoor space available to us.
For some children, the transition to starting school can be daunting, so a lot of time is spent with the Reception Class to graduate this move. In the summer term, a series of ‘moving up’ sessions are held where children gradually get to know their new teachers and the classroom.
Children in Nursery can attend for a minimum of two half-day sessions per week. Local Authority Early Education Funding is accepted for 15 hours per week of free Nursery provision, for children who are aged 3 and 4.
Taster sessions are offered on all days at a time that suits you, or please join us at our next Open Morning to see our Nursery in action. This is an excellent opportunity to talk to the dedicated staff about our ethos and educational provision and discuss how our flexible morning and afternoon sessions can best meet your needs.
