Warren Hills Nursery      

Welcome to Warren Hills Nursery!

We have a wonderful nursery with fantastic children and staff. We have great facilities outdoors and inside. Many of our staff have worked with us for years, and we are proud of the team we have created.

Manager – Kirstyn Massarella

We strongly believe that children come first and we ensure this is promoted throughout your child’s time with us at Warren Hills Nursery.

All three rooms have free flow access to the outdoor areas. We also have use of the large playing fields, the school hall and the sports pitch. The nursery operates on a learning through play ethos, and activities for each child are prepared by their Key-person with a learning intention behind it, so that they are having fun whilst learning. 

Their Key-person will ensure all their personal and educational needs are met.

Check out our Facebook page for more information about some of the things we get up to - simply type Warren Hills Nursery into Facebook to access the page!

We also have a twitter page that you can follow us on.

Please can all children please bring spare clothes with them.

It would also be useful for your child to have a pair of wellies and outdoor clothing with them. 

Please ensure your child’s clothes are labelled with their name, so that any lost items can be returned to you quickly.

Thank you!

 Important Notice! 

PLEASE remember if your child has sickness or diarrhoea, they must be kept away from school for 48 hours after the last time they were sick or had to use the toilet. We have had a number of children off with this bug already this year. It is so important we ALL stick to these rules (recommended by Public Health England) to protect children and staff.

This applies even if your child seems fine on the second day.

Thank you for your co-operation!

Ideas for you to try at home with your child...

Sunflowers Room

 Welcome to Sunflowers! 

We are the preschool room. Our children are 3-4 years old and getting ready to go to school. Our staff work very closely with the staff in Rainbows to ensure a smooth transition from Nursery to School. We do fantastic topics with children, indoors and outdoors, as well as early phonics and Big Moves, which supports core strength. Good core strength is essential for lots of areas of the curriculum in school.

Staff in Sunflowers: Maryann Curtis, Gemma Stringer and Naomi Whetton

Activities during temporary closure due to Covid 19

Please look at the following websites for ideas activities that you can do at home with your child.

bbc bitesize - if you look at this website it has lots of ideas for young children.

Hungry little minds - This is a campaign that's has been set up by the government. It has some excellent ideas for young children It also has some good ideas for suitable learning apps for your child.

Other ideas.

Book, books and more books 

 Books can be used in so many ways to develop language and early literacy skills. Read books with your children as often as you can. Talk about what they can see in the pictures, ask questions about what might happen next. Can they repeat familiar parts from the stories that you read?

 

Singing, lots of singing.

Singing is not only an excellent way of connecting with your child but also teaches them new vocabulary in a fun way. Ask your child which songs they like to sing, popular ones at nursery are Wind the bobbin up, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, If you are happy and you know it, Old Macdonald had a farm, The Wheels on the Bus.

Musical Statues

Dance when the music’s on and freeze when it stops. It’s as simple as that. You probably will know it from birthday parties, but it’s also great for an attention and listening exercise. Children love to dance, let them help you in choosing what songs they want to play.

 

Poppies Room

 Welcome to Poppies!

We mainly have 3 year olds in our room as they come up from Bluebells. Our staff work very closely with Sunflowers to ensure children are ready to move up. We do lots of exciting things, indoors and outside. We also do Big Moves and Sticky Kids.

Staff in Poppies: Amanda Saxby, Rebecca Garratt and Jackie Hart
