Welcome to our Nursery page.
We currently run morning nursery sessions Monday to Friday 8:45 am-11.45 am.
Litherland Moss Nursery is a warm and welcoming place where children are happy to play and learn. The children join us at 3 years of age and quickly settle into their new surroundings. We plan enriching learning experiences which aim to inspire the child inside and outside of the classroom.
We use a highly effective key-person system where children are able to develop strong relationships. This has an extremely positive impact on their sense of self-esteem and feelings of emotional security. Staff provide children with clear and consistent boundaries to promote positive behaviour and praise them using our class ‘rainbow.’ We teach children to listen, be kind, gentle and play safely. To find out more, do phone, email or even better, call in and see for yourself. We look forward to meeting you!
Nursery children bring their book bag into school on Fridays, to take a library and leveled reading book home each week.
Snack is £1 each week – this provides healthy food options daily for children to access independently.
PE takes place on Thursday mornings, please make sure your child wears suitable pumps or trainers. Please remove earrings or cover them prior to nursery.
Autumn-This term we will be learning ‘All About Me’:
We will look at ourselves, how we are all different, our bodies and families. As children settle in to their new routines they will be developing their social and emotional skills, learning how to be effective communicators and becoming confident individuals.
As Autumn approaches we will be noticing the changes to our outdoor environment and learn all about the change in seasons.
How you can support at home:
Share your child’s reading book with them and sing lots of nursery rhymes. Encourage your child to make up heir own versions or endings to stories. Can they say a rhyming string (frog, log, dog)?
To support their mathematics, count how many trees, dogs, flowers they can spot on your way to and from school? Involve your child with house chores like counting out the correct number of dinner plates, knives and forks for tea. Do they notice numbers in the environment on signs, packages and doors?
Let your child help out with any writing: birthday cards, letters, notes and shopping lists. Can they give meaning to the marks they make? Have fun supporting them to write their names in shaving foam, bath crayons, glitter, chalk or rice.
If you need any advice on how to extend your child’s learning at home, Miss Smart is always happy to help.
