Welcome to our Nursery Class!



Times : 8.45am - 11.45am every morning

                                             Welcome to a new term at Ranelagh. 

   When the children arrive at nursery in the morning, we ask that you help them to change into their indoor plimsolls. They will find their picture on our self-register, before getting busy in our exciting, newly decorated environment. At nursery the children learn about being part of a group, how to share and take turns and take their first steps to being independent. 


The children can choose to have their snack when they are hungry or thirsty. We provide milk or water to drink, the children are encouraged to pour their own drinks. We provide a variety of fruit, and other snacks such as cereal, breadsticks, savoury crackers and cheese. Sometimes we make sandwiches or toast, or bake cakes and biscuits. 

Outdoor Learning

The children can choose to play inside or outside throughout the morning. When they go outside, we will be encouraging them to change into wellie boots. It is very helpful if you can encourage them to be independent at home too, choosing clothes and shoes which they can manage themselves, will really help. 



Please ensure your child brings their book bag with their library book and reading record book inside each Monday, so that they can choose a new library book which we ask you to share with them at home.

Snack Money

So that we can provide additional snack and do some cooking activities with the children, we collect £3 each half-term. Thankyou for paying this promptly. 

Nursery Routines

At the end of each morning the children  listen to a short story and to join in with a variety of songs and rhymes.

We encourage the children to wear aprons and waterproof clothing but sometimes they get very messy, so please ensure they wear their old clothes. It is always helpful to write their names in their clothes .
