Wainscott School Nursery Provision
At Wainscott Primary we are incredibly fortunate to have nursery provision on site. This is situated within the school building and has strong links to those children of school age in EYFS. Early Years at Wainscott is free- flow and our Nursery children have the opportunity to join in phonics sessions across the provision.
We provide care and education for children aged 3 and 4 years old. At Wainscott Nursery we firmly believe that every child has the right to meet their full potential through a play based curriculum. We provide opportunities for children to become curious, excited and hands-on learners whilst socialising and having fun. The adults ensure that children feel secure through a set routine within a stimulating and challenging environment.
All 3 to 4-year-olds are entitled to 570 hours of free early education or childcare per year. This is usually taken as 15 hours each week for 38 weeks of the year. Some 2-year-olds are also eligible, although we do not provide this service currently.
|Child’s birthday||When you can claim|
|1 January to 31 August||the beginning of term on or after 1 September|
|1 September to 31 December||the beginning of term on or after 1 January|

The BBC have launched a website called Tiny Happy People. Fun development and bonding ideas for babies, toddlers and pre-school children.
"Language lets children express themselves and tell others how they feel.
When children start school they should be able to speak to their new friends in full sentences, ask teachers simple questions and understand what they’re told to do. When they have these skills they’ll feel more confident and they’ll be happier.
But children starting school all across the UK today are unable to do these things.
In England, 1 in 4 children starting primary school are behind with their level of literacy development (language, communication and literacy skills), rising to more than 1 in 3 (42%) in some areas (Department for Education, 2019). The picture is similar in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland too.
Language and communication skills unlock literacy, and that’s why Tiny Happy People is concentrating on the building blocks of language development.
Tiny Happy People is here to help you develop your child's communication skills. Explore our simple activities and play ideas and find out about their amazing early development."
