Learning in Nursery

Early Years Vision at the Keresley Schools

Our vision for our Keresley schools, is to provide our youngest children with the skills to be responsible, successful and independent life-long learners. Learners who are not afraid to try to use ambitious vocabulary through the language opportunities they are given, can communicate effectively with others and use their positive experiences with books and storytelling to further broaden their vocabulary base. Learners who develop a love of learning, who are not afraid to make mistakes, take risks, solve problems and be enterprising enough to try new things in their quest for knowledge. Learners who are empathetic to their peers in our school and wider school community and are able to work together and collaboratively in their independent challenges. Learners who when they leave us, are ready for the next stage of their learning, learning that impacts their lives so that they can become the best they can be.  

Here at the Keresley Schools we are very proud of our Nursery. We aim to provide a warm and caring environment where children can feel secure, confident and happy as they beginning their school learning journey.

In our early years unit, we admit children the term after their third birthday. We have space for up to 30 children. Each morning session runs from 8.45-11.45am every week day. We currently offer places for children aged from 3 to 4 years.

We also offer 30 hour funded childcare places for children aged 3 to 4 years if certain criteria are met. These sessions are from 8.40am until 3.20pm for 38 weeks of the year. For more information on 30 hour places please look at the attachments at the bottom of the page.
