Providing children with the best possible start in life.

We currently run morning nursery sessions Monday to Friday 8:45 am-11.45 am.
Litherland Moss Nursery is a warm and welcoming setting 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.
In nursery we closely follow the EYFS framework. Our main focus when children start at 3 years of age is on the three prime areas of learning, including Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development. These areas support learning in the four specific areas of development, including Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. The Characteristics of Effective Learning underpin all areas of learning and development in the EYFS. These are; Active Learning, Playing and Exploring and Creating and Thinking Critically.
Staff provide children with clear and consistent boundaries to promote positive behaviour. We teach the children to listen, be kind, to be gentle and to play safely. We also use ClassDojo to reward the children. We celebrate those children who are following our school values and for their wonderful achievements.
Please ensure that your child has a spare change of clothes in their bag everyday.
Please ensure all clothing items are clearly labelled with your child’s name, including shoes.
Reading books are changed every Friday. Please try to read frequently with your child during the week and bring their book back to be changed by the following Thursday.
Autumn 1- Marvellous Me
A very warm welcome to our Nursery children! We are looking forward to the term ahead and our exciting learning adventures together.
This half-term our main focus initially will be settling the children into their new setting, building relationships and getting to know our daily classroom routine. We will then begin our learning journey by creating our self-portraits and learning all about ourselves and our new friends. We will learn to name different body parts and will read many stories, including 'What I Like About Me' by Allia Zobel-Nola. We will discuss our interests and our favourite things. We will talk about the people we love and care about-our families and friends. In Maths, we will be comparing different sizes and weights, noticing patterns and beginning to make our own patterns, as well as providing the children with lots of opportunities to explore number through adult-led carpet sessions and during continuous provision. The children will have lots of opportunities to explore, spark their curiosities and express their creativity this term, using paints, water, sand and other interesting materials!
How you can support at home:
All of the fun activities that you do with your child at home are very important in supporting your child’s early learning and development.
- Look at and read stories regularly with your child. Engage with your child and involve lots of questioning and discussion.
- Try and pair matching socks together and encourage getting changed independently.
- Sing number rhymes, such as Ten Green Bottles, Five Little Ducks, Five Currant Buns etc.
- Allow them to help with measuring out ingredients when baking.
- Collect natural objects to make pictures and collages e.g. nature collages, leaf printing etc.
- Look at print in the environment e.g. road signs, labels, numbers on houses.
- Engage in water play at bath time – filling and emptying containers and talking about capacity.
- Allow your child to help with shopping.
- Solve simple problems together e.g. how many scoops of sand will fill the bucket?
