The Nursery attached to Nicholas Hawksmoor Primary School in Towcester is holding an open afternoon on Monday 22 January 2018 to enable parents and children to have a look around its outstanding facilities.
Unusually for a nursery setting, it is headed up by a qualified teacher, Steph Abbotts, giving the advantage of educational expertise. The Nursery also offers four qualified staff who dedicate their time to ensure all the children experience a warm and caring environment and have masses of fun while they learn. This high quality provision enables children to have a flying start at four!
“The Nursery is massively popular with parents and children alike,” explains Steph Abbots. “We have lovely facilities which are only enhanced by being part of the school's infrastructure - children here have plenty of mixed play with reception children and teachers, making the transition to reception much more invaluable should they decide to stay within the school. We have recently improved our outside space as well – investments in Astroturf and play equipment make sure we can utilise our outside space everyday whatever the weather, as well as our mud kitchen outside for plenty of pretend cooking!”
The open session will take place between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on 22 January 2018. “Because we are linked to the school and a little tucked away, we believe that having an open day session will help parents realise all the options available to them when looking for a facility for their child for that invaluable pre-reception year,” added Sarah.
The Nursery caters for up to 60 children between the ages of 3-4 years, as part of the Early Years Foundation Stage, and is open to all children wherever they live locally. It runs five mornings or five afternoon sessions per week, with the additional options of lunch clubs and top up sessions, to ensure all children benefit from the 30 hours government funding.
