Blessed Sacrament Nursery
The Blessed Sacrament Nursery is an established Nursery with an experienced class teacher and staff. We offer 15 hour free entitlement places for children after their 3rd birthday, (There is no additional ‘top up’ option available), choosing either 5 mornings or 5 afternoons per week.
We offer exciting first hand experiences for children and aim to help them develop on a personal, social and emotional level through play and adult led activities. Through careful observations we identify children’s needs and plan activities to meet them.
Our team of staff work hard to help children settle into the regular routines and develop secure relationships and we endeavour to establish a close partnership with you, working as a team to share and celebrate your child’s progress.
We have a fantastic outdoor area and we encourage our children to explore both the internal and external environment and to challenge themselves, be creative and be confident when encountering new experiences.
We have developed the interior of the nursery into a comfortable, secure environment where children are encouraged to be independent and make their own choices whilst learning to work and play together.
As we have such close links with school, our children have endless opportunities to visit and experience school life before they enter the Reception Unit. This makes for a smooth and comfortable transition with their friends in the academic year that they are 5 years old.
We work hard to meet the needs of every individual child, through activities, stories, visits from outside agencies: Leaping Liz (a children’s fitness instructor), John and his Owls and have more recently organised a visit to The Safe Play Centre.
As in school, we follow the Read/Write Inc phonics scheme, learning the sounds of letters and how to blend them together with some children taking home reading books within their Preschool year!
We are extremely proud of our Nursery and welcome visits by parents and children as we understand the importance of a supportive and nurturing foundation to a child’s journey on the road of education.
