Wedmore First School Nursery provides excellent care and education for children aged from 2 to 4 between 8.00 am and 6.00 pm all year round.
The nursery is led by an Early Years teacher with a well - qualified team of nursery assistants. The team values good relationships with parents and carers. They build a partnership between each child’s home and the nursery, celebrating each child's successes at home and in the nursery.
We aim to make children feel nurtured and stimulated in a warm and friendly environment in which learning through play is the cornerstone of our ethos. We foster strong links with reception classes and our nursery classes enjoy the school’s resources eg the activity hall for physical development activities, music and drama. We have forest school provision within the school grounds, activities in the school garden and swimming lessons with a qualified instructor during the second part of the summer term.
We offer safe and secure rooms with appropriate provision for two year olds and three to four year olds in our recently renovated building. The nursery ensures a safe, stimulating, happy and rich learning environment which has a balanced Earl Years Foundation Stage curriculum covering the six learning goals. Our nursery offers opportunities for children to explore, investigate and develop their creativity. We ensure there is a variety of curriculum activities available each day enabling children to develop skills and follow their individual interests.. We provide nutritious meals and snacks which are all prepared in the kitchen of the school. The morning and afternoon snacks are served in the nursery, lunch is eaten in the main school hall before the school aged children start eating.
