Welcome to our nursery

Providing children with the best possible start in life. 

Our class teacher is Miss Webster

Our teaching assistants are Miss Gibson, Mrs Balshaw and Miss Garner. 

We hope that this page gives you all of the information about Nursery that you need, but of course if you require any further information please do not hesitate to speak to Miss Webster or contact the school office. 

We currently run 15 hour morning nursery sessions Monday to Friday 8:45am-11.45am and 30 hour sessions Monday to Friday 8:45am - 3pm. 

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. 

Class Reminders:

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 every Friday to be changed. 

Summer 1 - Where does our food come from? 

This half-term we will begin by exploring the wonderful world of magnificent mini-beasts. Our book focus will be 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and we will even have our own caterpillars to observe as they transform into beautiful butterflies! We will learn about plants that mini beasts love to explore and will find out what plants need to grow. 

We will then have a focus on healthy lifestyles and will ask ourselves the question, ‘Where does our food come from?’ We will learn all about foods from around the world whilst exploring some wonderful texts such as ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and ‘Oliver’s Vegetables.’ 

In maths, we will continue to develop our counting and number recognition skills. We will further develop our knowledge of simple 2D shapes and will take part in some fun size and measuring activities. 




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?
