Each child will have a key person who will play a central role in supporting them and their family whilst on their learning journey through Nursery. 

What you can do to help at home:



Reading - Read and look at books together, plus sing lots of Nursery Rhymes at home. Play 'I spy...' and listen out for different sounds all around.  Also, practise the sounds in the sound pocket, at least four times per week.

Writing - have fun mark making at home by colouring and drawing pictures.  Encourage your child to talk about the marks they have made.  Make large anti-clockwise, vertical line and zig zag lines movements, in the air, painting with water on the floor or using their magic finger to make the patterns in flour on a tray.

Maths -  Sing number rhymes together, such as 5 Little Ducks went swimming one day or 5 speckled Frogs.  Count out aloud while clapping or jumping, count everyday objects, look for shapes and numbers in the environment and talk about different times of the day, dinner time, home time bed time etc.

Useful websites to support learning at home:

Welcome to Nursery

Welcome to St Ann's Nursery. The Nursery Team are really looking forward to teaching your child and taking them on their first exciting steps of their learning journey, by experiencing new skills and knowledge.

In our experience, some children may get upset at some point, this is normal. We will always comfort your child and find ways to distract them and help them to enjoy their time at Nursery. If your child really struggles to settle, we will work with the parents / carers to  make reasonable adjustments and set up an individual programme to support them. Each child is unique and will cope in different ways, but our staff will do everything possible to make settling in to Nursery as easy and enjoyable as possible.

Learning challenges

We have lots of fun and exciting learning challenges in our Nursery Class. 


These take place inside the classroom and outside in the nursery garden, playground or Den area.  So the children may get a little messy at times when having fun learning new skills and knowledge!

Please find out more about our learning starting points by looking at our curriculum.
