Nursery Open day - Transition into School - April 2016



We had 15 sets of parents attend our Nursery Open day on Wednesday 13th April 2016.  The parents were given an opportunity to explore all of the new resources within our Nursery with their children, as well as go on a tour of the three Reception classes.  Parents had an opportunity to ask the Head of EYFS, Mrs Stevens and the Nursery teacher, Miss T any questions they had during the sessions about preparing their child for starting either Nursery or Reception.
