Parent Information

Partnership Working

Alverton Woodland Nursery pre school is an amalgamation of Alverton school Nursery and the private day nursery that is housed in the same building. We believe our partnership working improves childcare services to families whilst providing the best possible start to the education of all young children who access our provision.

Children have snack during both the morning and afternoon sessions. This consists of freshly baked bread, fresh fruit and vegetables, crackers, milk and water. Sometimes the children make their own special snack which might be buns, biscuits or breadsticks. We ask for a contribution towards snack of £8 per term.

Outdoor Clothing

We are in the outside area everyday and sometimes get wet and muddy. Please send your child to nursery with plenty of changes of clothes including socks and pants. We are well resourced with waterproof trousers and coats but you will need to send your child in with their own wellies. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather including hats and gloves if it is cold.

Transition into school

Children have a PE session in the hall over at school once a week and also a library session. This enables children to start getting used to the school environment very early on. If your child has been allocated a place at Alverton school they will have lots of opportunity to visit during the summer term. The children will have weekly visits to their new classroom and get to stay and play with all the children who will be starting school with them in September. This process supports children becoming familiar with their new environment whilst forging new relationships with their peers and their teachers.
