“We believe forming good links between home and school are paramount.”
Welcome to Nursery!
Our Nursery at King’s Hall School is a friendly, happy and welcoming setting for children aged 2 to 4 years. Every child will have their very own key worker who will focus on their individual needs and support them through their time here with us at King’s.
We have two rooms, known as Pelican Nursery Room 1, which welcomes children from the age of 2, and Pelican Nursery Room 2. Pelican Nursery Room 2 welcomes children when in their pre-school year and where they stay until they make the transition to their Reception year. It is positioned next to our Reception classrooms with whom we share a secure, purpose-built outside area.
Whether your child starts at age 2 or 3, they will be assigned a Key Person who will work in close partnership with you to ensure they feel happy and safe and that all of their needs are being met. We believe forming good links between home and school are paramount.
We offer the following session choices (but do ask for a minimum of two sessions per week):
Morning (including lunch): 8.00am – 1.00pm
All day: 8.00am – 6.00pm* (*Children may be collected from 3.30pm)
Moving on to Reception
When the time approaches for your child to move up to Reception, we would be delighted to give you a tour of the facilities so that you can see more of the school and what we have to offer at the next stages of your child's development.
Children looking to make the move would normally do so in the September term following their 4th birthday. At this point you would be invited to a Welcome Afternoon in the Summer Term – here you can learn more about what happens next when your child ‘starts school’, and how we can support you and your child/ren.
It can be a little daunting moving up to a new class, with new teachers and a new environment. We therefore like to make this feel as easy as possible and start to introduce children to their new teachers and routine during the Summer Term. This transition is often smooth as the surroundings are already familiar and we are part of one big school family.
