Mrs Garden – Primrose teacher

Nurturing and inspiring our youngest children is a real passion of mine. I love watching the children get lost in a story and creating imaginative and exciting play opportunities for children to help them develop and learn.  Empowering every child through sharing in their fascinations, using them as a starting point to further develop learning excites me as a practitioner. It enables every child to share a sense of identity and belonging and to learn essential skills through play for future success.  Away from school I love to get outdoors with my three children, go running and bake delicious treats for my friends and family.

Transition to Nursery

Effective transition to Nursery is essential to ensure that staff are able to build secure and strong relationships with families and children and to ease the transition into a new environment. To ensure an effective transition into Nursery, we will ask parents to join us with their child for a transition visit, during which we will show parents and children around the setting, introduce staff members and complete any admissions forms. Following this, we ask parents to join us for 3 stay and play sessions for up to an hour each time before leaving their child. Staggered starts individually programmed to meet you and your child’s needs, ensures that children are able to settle into Nursery at their own pace and feel happy and confident when they do begin their full sessions.
