Adventurers 3-4 years
A warm welcome to Adventurers !
Children join Adventurers when they are 3 years old either from our Toddler Room or as they begin to access their Free Funded 15 hours entitlement. In Adventurers , Kelly Baird is the teacher along with Stephanie Blackwell and Raheela Ali who are out nursery practitioners and Manyaz Jarad is our apprentice.
The children are at the heart of everything we do in Nursery, but this is closely followed by parents and we put in much effort to ensure that you are fully informed of everything that goes on in school. We send out a weekly Learning update to explain the learning for the week as well as other school notices or handy details.
Every child has a Learning Journey that documents their progress through the year and these are available for parents to browse at any time. We encourage parents to contribute to these journals as they watch their children’s achievements and to ensure that school and home become real partners in the learning process. Our Key Person system is strong and you will have many opportunities to chat frequently with your named Key Person.
In class, we follow topics for two or three weeks at a time and these are led by the children’s interest and also driven by the seasons and festivals.
We have full outdoor provision and enjoy many of our activities outside-in all weathers.
Each Term parents and carers are invited to ‘Taking Time to Talk’ sessions with their Key Person.
We all know that going to primary school is a big (and sometimes daunting) step for our children. With this in mind, we work hard to make the transition from Toddlers to Nursery or Nursery into school as seamless as possible with as many settling visits as required, Key Person meetings, individual information sharing sessions, and sessions for the children in their new Primary School before they finally leave us.
