Hello and welcome to Whitecote Nursery!
A big welcome to Whitecote Nursery, we are sure you are going to love it here!
This year in Nursery the staff are:
Nursery teachers: Mrs Chorlton and Mrs Thompson
Nursery Officer: Mrs Myers

You can choose for your child to attend mornings or afternoons, or for two and a half days (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning OR Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday). We now offer 30 hour places from all day Monday to Friday - please see a member of staff for the eligibility criteria.
Doors open in the morning at 8.45 am and the morning sessions finish at 11.35 am when doors open for 10 minutes to allow you to collect your children. The afternoon sessions start at 12.15 pm, and finish at 3.05 pm, again allowing 10 mins to collect your children and gates close at 3.15 pm. Only those children staying all day will need a packed lunch.
Light and Dark - To explore the concept of light and dark we turned our reading corner into a dark cave that the children crawled into and had to use torches to see by.
Nursery started our Autumn discussions with an Autumn walk into our Wildlife Area to see what signs of Autumn we could see.
Loose parts Autumn art. More work with our Autumn treasures - letter formation and making faces!
This half term our topic is OURSELVES.
At Whitecote, we use an online learning journey called Tapestry to send home photos and descriptions of what your child has been doing at Nursery.
Please take some time to have a look at what your child has been doing at school.
We would also like to see what your child has been doing at home, so please upload things to Tapestry.
