Welcome to Swans!
We are a Nursery Class in the Foundation Stage
We have spaces for both 30 hour and 15 hour morning, afternoon or all-day places. Please contact the school on 01235 523132 or email office firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application form or arrange a visit to our Nursery
Swans Nursery Class is part of the Early Years Foundation Stage within the primary school. Children can join our Nursery the term after their third birthday. We offer both funded 15 hours and 30 hours provision. For more information on Government help with childcare costs and how to apply for 30 hours funding please click on the link https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/ To apply for a place please contact the school office to request an application form. These should be returned along with the child's birth certificate and proof of address.
Please note: Children who have a place in our Nursery do not automatically move into our Reception Class. Parents and carers must apply for a Reception place for their child through Oxfordshire admissions:
The teachers in Swans class are Mrs Neighbour (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) and Mrs Lyon, (Thursday Friday). We are also very lucky to have Mrs Clark and Mrs Busby as our teaching assistants.
Our Welcome letter can be found below, which gives more detailed information about life in Swans Class. There is also a basic timetable, showing the Nursery day.
All the Early Years staff in Nursery and Reception work closely together. Events and visits are often planned jointly, which means the children become familiar with the adults they will work with if they go onto one of the Reception classes. Swans Nursery class also share the garden and lunchtimes in the Hall with Reception class.
Our Topic for the Autumn term is Who am I? and Why do Bears go to sleep? You can see our termly information plan below. Each week we will also send out a parent information sheet which will give ideas of how you can support your child’s learning at home.
Our school online platform is Class Dojo. It's a great way for us to communicate with each other. We post messages and regular updates about what your children have been learning and enjoying as well as important dates for your diaries, so keep checking in regularly.
We are looking forward to a happy year together in Swans, learning together through play and fun!
