St Francis Xavier Nursery
Welcome to our 52 place school Nursery which opened in January 2009.
We admit children into our Nursery following their third birthday and offer the following sessions (we have a maximum of 26 morning places and 26 afternoon places.)
The session times for nursery are as follows:
- Mornings - 8.30 to 11.30am
- Afternoons - 12.30 to 3:30pm
- Fulltime: 8.30am to 3.30pm (top-up fees are applicable for fulltime places.)
Activities are planned in the unit following the Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). This covers seven areas of learning and development which are made up of three prime areas: communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development and four specific areas through which these are strengthened and applied: literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design. Learning and development opportunities are planned around the needs of the individual child and are assessed and reviewed regularly.
We provide a secure, safe and happy environment which ensures that the children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. We promote a strong partnership between practitioners and parents/carers to support children's experiences and respond to their individual needs.
