Welcome to Nursery

Meet the Team

Class Teacher – Mrs Laura Metcalfe

Nursery Nurse – Mrs Susan Gray

All children aged 3 and over are eligible to receive 15 hours free nursery education. Children are admitted in the term after their third birthday. If spare places are available, we will consider admitting a pupil as soon as they turn three, before their funded place begins. This will be decided on a case by case basis.

In EYFS, we follow the 2012 Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. The children’s learning and development is taught through seven areas of learning, which are:

  • Communication and Language

  • Physical Development

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

  • Literacy

  • Mathematics

  • Understanding the World

  • Expressive Arts and Design

At Glenaire, our Foundation Stage staff whole-heartedly believe in encouraging and developing child-initiated learning. This approach means that the children are the originators of an activity and are directing their own learning, which results in extremely high levels of interest and engagement.
