Mrs Phillips is the Nursery teacher and her teaching assistant this term is Emma.
We are a 64 place Nursery offering morning sessions (32 places) or afternoon sessions (32 places) for children who have had their third birthday. Our intakes take place in September, January and April but places do become available during the school year.
You can apply for a place for your child by contacting the School Admissions Service on 02920 872087. When School Admissions inform us of your allocation we will contact you. Our next intake will be in January 2021. As online applications for January 2021 and April 2021 have now closed you will need to contact School Admissions in order to complete a 'Late Application' form. This form can also be downloaded from www.cardiff.gov.uk/schooladmissions. When you have logged in you will need to click on Nursery and then on the right hand side click on 'What if I've missed the deadline?' You will then be able to download the 'Late Application' form.
If you are still undecided about where to send your child for their Nursery education then please read the positive comments that we have received from parents/carers. (see attachment below)
If you would like to visit our Nursery then we would love to meet you. Please contact the Headteacher on 02920 229944 or Mrs Phillips (Nursery Teacher) on 02920 229944 and press Option 3 to arrange a visit. There are restrictions currently in place due to Covid 19.
Our aim in Nursery is to help your child to develop positive relationships with other children and adults, to grow in confidence and develop a love for learning.
We do this by working closely with parents to find out as much as we can about your child before they start school. For some of our children it is their first experience of being away from Mum or Dad and it is hugely important that children feel happy and secure in school so that they make great progress in their learning.
Please be aware of the new finishing times due to Covid 19 restrictions.
We open the Nursery doors at 8.55 am for our morning session and 12.40pm for our afternoon session. Morning children should be collected at 11.15am and afternoon children at 3.00pm. Arriving on time ensures your child makes the best possible start to their learning time.
Home Reading and Story Sacks are currently on hold due to Covid 19
You can help yourself to a book from our 'Book Trolley' at anytime as sharing stories with children is a great way to develop language and early reading skills. However, we do ask that if a book does get damaged at home please will you let us know.
'Storysack' day is a Thursday and please remember to bring your 'storysack' back on a Monday so that we are able to share your child's activities with the rest of the group before we swap the sacks. We have a very positive response from families about our storysacks, the numbers are constantly growing but please support us by bringing them back on time.
We encourage pupils to wear uniform which can be purchased from YC Sports on Crwys Road, Cardiff. If you choose not to dress your child in uniform there is still a school dress code. Children must come to school in clothes which allow them freedom of movement. The best "kit" for a good day in Nursery is jogging trousers, leggings, white or yellow t- shirts and a sweatshirt. Jeans or trousers which need a belt are not suitable, no open toed sandals or jewellery can be worn in school.
