Welcome to Hassell Primary Nursery. When your child joins our nursery they will receive all the care and attention they need. The first time your child separates from you can be an upsetting experience - for both you and your child! However, our nursery is caring and well-trained staff will help make the whole process much happier and less traumatic. We see our Nursery as an extension of experiences received at home, therefore we believe a partnership with you, the parents and carers, to support the children’s learning is paramount.

Our Nursery aims to provide a stimulating, caring and nurturing environment which meets each child’s needs as an individual. We will endeavour to offer a collection of unique experiences using both the outdoors and indoors as a positive learning environment. The Nursery offers an environment for children to learn through play. Children at this stage are now eagerly seeking information about all exciting aspects of their rapidly expanding world. They learn from their experiences which teach them to try out new things, ask questions and experience many new learning opportunities.

Our curriculum is planned, delivered and evaluated to ensure that the children receive broad-based experiences in line with the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum. The children are observed in a relaxed way to ensure that the curriculum planned for them builds on the skills that your child already possesses.

Our Nursery Curriculum is organised around half-termly topics which provide the children with the opportunity to engage in a wide range of activities to develop their skills and experience.

Some of the topics we look at in the nursery are:

  • Autumn / Winter – Trips to the park
  • Colours and shapes
  • People who help us – We have had visits from Police, Fireman, Paramedics with their ambulance and Dentist
  • Animals – We all had fun at Amerton farm
  • Fairy Tales
  • Nursery rhymes – We enjoyed a fun filled trip to Wonderland
