Our Nursery provides sessions for children aged 2-4 years in our specialised facility that nurtures each child’s development and enable them to achieve their potential. At Ash Grange we encourage our children to get messy and have fun outside in all weathers .
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which provides learning through continuous play and exploration. Adults plan both adult and child initiated activities that enable the children to develop social skills, self confidence and independence in a range of contexts.

Every child and family is thoroughly inducted into Nursery and School at whatever stage they join. There are a number of ways we support the child and family:
Nursery Classes: Children have a few days of visiting with a parent, then short visits alone before embarking on full sessions alone; this is adjusted to the individual child’s needs.
For New to Reception Class children:
June Evening Meeting - an information event to ensure parents have all the information that is needed for their children starting school in September.
July Induction visits - A morning or afternoon visit to the class for the children and an induction workshop with the Head for new parents. The children are in groups of 6 and visit once over the induction weeks.
Staggered Start in September - Children and families attend a familiarisation visit to the classroom the day before starting. The children are staggered in over a few days, in the order of new to setting children first as they need time to adapt to the new environment.
For in-year transfers from other schools: Families meet with Mrs Curtis to discuss needs and requirements. A school tour is provided by the admin team. Children are inducted by the Classteacher with a programme of support and adjustment.
