There is a 78 place Nursery at Ocker Hill Infant and Nursery School. Children attend part time or full time from the age of three onwards. When children start Nursery they are given a Morning (Buttercups), Afternoon (Daisies) or Full time (Bluebells) place. The full time places are offered linked to parents who qualify for 30 hours free childcare.
Children are placed into family groups, during this time they will have the opportunity to develop their personal, social and emotional skills as well as their communication and language skills. During the day; the children will access all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage both inside and outside.
In Nursery, the children learn through a thematic approach, this is where all areas of the curriculum are covered during their learning time. We encourage the children to plan activities around their personal interests and to take ownership of their learning.
Morning Nursery 'Buttercups' starts at 8-30am until 11-30am.
Afternoon Nursery 'Daisies' starts at 12-30pm until 3-30pm.
Full time Nursery 'Bluebells' starts at 8-30am until 3-30pm.
