Welcome to Nursery

Rayne School Nursery is led by a Qualified Teacher specialising in child development in the Early Years. She is supported by a Nursery Nurse with over 20 years’ experience in the role.

Primarily, at Rayne School Nursery we aim to make all aspects of learning fun! We provide children with a range of opportunities to build on the skills they already have and challenge them in preparation for school. Children learn through first-hand experience, play-based and teacher-led phase 1 phonic activities. These activities are based around high quality texts which where possible will follow the children’s interests. We follow the EYFS curriculum and value every child as an individual.

We will send home a range of opportunities for you to share learning at home with us in Nursery, and your involvement is valued greatly. We aim to keep you as updated as possible with your child’s learning and development. We value our relationships with parents, if you have any questions please ask or write it in the communication book. We are excited to be a part of your child’s first steps in their own learning journey.

We offer a range of flexible sessions using the 15 funded hours that all children are entitled to from the September after their 3rd birthday. Funding can be used for either 5 morning sessions, 8.45am-11.45am or 5 afternoon sessions 12.30pm- 3.30pm.

Subject to availability, we offer the opportunity for children to have a school lunch either before or after a session. You may also book your child in for additional sessions in either the morning or afternoon so that your child can stay all day. Please note that in addition to this, from September 2017, we will be offering the new 30-hour entitlement for parents working 16 hours or more.
