A warm and engaging environment where children learn and grow.

In our Nursery, we believe passionately in providing high quality education in a safe, secure and healthy environment. Our children thrive through stimulating, challenging and creative play opportunities that build their self-esteem and foster independence. We value a child centered approach that promotes positive attitudes to learning and believe that every child deserves the very best start in life.

Term 1 - Whose world is it anyway?

Our journey this term is starting off welcoming all of our returning children to Nursery as well as some new faces! We are busy making new friends and learning new routines. We will then start to explore some new books too starting with Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne. We will be reading about all the trickery that the animals gets up to and learning about the different fruits she brings her friend. During snack time we'll try some of these fruits too to see what we think! Next we will read the story What The Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson to start exploring the different animals sounds! As well this term the children have shown a great interest in fire fighters and fire trucks so we have been building our very own fire truck for the children to play in!

Tuesday - Indoor PE (please bring trainers)

Wednesday - Woodland Days (rain or shine!)

Thursday- Indoor PE (please bring trainers)

Speech and language support - how can you help your child?

Communication is a key building block for all children to thrive in every aspect of their life. Your support at home with this is not only much appreciated, but also an essential element of their development. For tips and ideas about how you can do this, have a look at the Speech and Language Link parent Portal:

Settling in

Above all, we want children to feel safe and happy at nursery. We also want parents to feel welcome and involved from the beginning. We believe that children cannot play or learn successfully if they are anxious, so we always do our best to ensure the settling in period goes smoothly. Our settling in procedures have been devised to help parents and children feel calm, comfortable and reassured.

After you completely your application for a place at Nursery we will get in contact confirming your hours. Before your first full session we will invite you to a Google Meet so we can learn all about your child! We will then invite you and your child to come into nursery for a 'stay and play'. This will give you all an opportunity to meet their teachers and some of their new friends. They get to explore both the inside and outside environment. Due to COVID-19 restrictions parents need to stay in the Nursery garden but this will give your child the reassurance of having you near as they begin to take this next big step in their educational journey. Following the first 'stay and play' session we will then decide collaboratively how we will start their first session as either a half day or a full day depending on how confident they are feeling at their new setting. During this process we will follow your child's lead to ensure a smooth transition into Ringmer Nursery.
