We are delighted to inform you that our Nursery provision will be open this September (2019)

At Aldbury we will offer a safe and caring environment where children will experience a wide range of opportunities for educational and creative play, both indoors and outdoors.

 Our Nursery provision forms part of our Early Years Foundation Stage unit meaning they will taught in a mixed Nursery/Reception class by skilled and experienced professionals, including a qualified teacher.  



If your child was born between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016, you will be able to make an application for a Nursery place to start in September 2019.

Children are accepted into Nursery the September before their fourth birthday.

Pupils in Nursery follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

These include:


Three prime areas:
• Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED).
• Communication and Language (CL).
• Physical Development (PD).


Four specific areas:
• English.
• Mathematics.
• Understanding the World.
• Expressive Arts and Design.


Nursery pupils are involved in a wide range of topic-based activities which promote all areas of the Early Years Curriculum with a particular emphasis on personal, social and emotional development. Their learning is achieved through both adult led and child initiated experiences.
