Welcome to Nursery, We hope that you’ve all had a wonderful summer break and are looking forward to the year ahead in Nursery as much as we are! Welcome to all our new children and families and welcome back to our existing children! We are having a staggered intake in Nursery to ensure all children settle and are able to get used to their new environment. So far, the children are loving exploring both the indoor and outdoor classrooms!
Our morning session begins at 8:40am and finishes at 11:40am. Our afternoon session finishes at the same time as the rest of the school at 3.10pm..
At St Matthew’s nursery we have an open door policy so please feel free to come into the classroom to settle your child and join in their morning routine.
Please make sure your child comes to school with a coat each day, even when it is sunny! Our temperamental weather in Manchester means it can be glorious sunshine in the morning and raining by the afternoon. The children have access to the outdoor area throughout the day and in all weather, so please make sure they are prepared for any weather. We recommend leaving a pair of wellies in school with them to avoid school shoes being ruined.
We would really appreciate you informing either the class teacher or the office if anyone other than a parent/carer is picking up your child, even if they are familiar to school. It is our school policy not to let children go home with anyone without parental permission. This includes family members and childminders.
Please make sure your child has a set of spare underwear/clothes on their peg, in case they need to be changed in school.
Please can you you label all items of clothing, especially jumpers and cardigans as children often take them off and forget which one is theirs
Children in nursery will take part in P.E on Thursday mornings in the hall of the main school building, however they do not need to bring a P.E kit as we don’t currently get changed.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to us!
Miss Charles and Miss Shorrocks
