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 5 - What can plants do for us?

Our journey this term is looking at what plants can do for us. We began the term by looking at the poem A Little Seed. The children took great joy in performing this poem in school and at home! Next we are reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and finally we will explore the story The Boy Who Lost His Bumble. As well during this term we will be replanting our vegetable patch in the Nursery garden. The children take great pride in planting and watering our vegetable plants!

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.
