Nursery provision

We are the early years class at Lower Heath CE Primary Schoool and we are taught by Mrs. Gallimore-Johnson and we are very lucky to have a super teaching assistant, Mrs Pugh.  We love learning through our exciting topics and helping each other. We particularly love sharing new experiences, such as trying new foods or welcoming interesting visitors into our classroom. This term our topic in animals so we are having lots of fun finding out about different animals.

At Lower Heath Nursery we provide a warm, stimulating, welcoming environment which gives a secure foundation for all children to become happy, confident, caring individuals who achieve personal success and develop a lifelong love of learning. 

Our setting provides EYFS provision for 3-5 year olds and is led by a qualified Teacher and a highly experienced Early Years Practitioner. Children can attend nursery for full-day or half-day sessions, between 8:40am and 3:00pm. We also offer extended hours for children in our Breakfast and After School Clubs. 

Our learning activities are carefully planned through themes and contexts that are relevant to our children’s interests, making learning meaningful and engaging. We recognise that each child will develop at their own pace and in their own way physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally. This experience of positive outcomes, enhances children’s self-confidence and naturally promotes a joy for learning!

We have wonderful outside areas, including a Forest School and a vegetable garden, in which activities enhance the curriculum and contribute to the children’s physical development and their knowledge of the world around them.

In addition, we provide weekly French, Yoga, Gardening, Cookery and Woodland outdoor learning sessions. Children also benefit from specialist Sports Coaches to teach Physical Development lessons to our Nursery children, which include Gymnastics and Dance.
