May Park has a lovely well-resourced Nursery class that can accommodate up to fifty 3 to 4 year olds:

30 in the morning session - 8.45am-11.45am 20 in the afternoon session - 12.30-3.30pm.

Our Nursery entitlement is provided as 3 hour sessions, five days a week. We are also able to offer some 2½ day places.

Our Nursery class children have access to a high quality, play based learning environment organised into workshop areas. The large secure garden and school woodland facilitate wonderful outdoor play opportunities all year round.

Currently the Nursery has an excellent staffing ratio of 1 adult to 8 children and the key workers are highly skilled and experienced professionals. 

The Nursery sessions have a supportive routine which includes opportunities for children to work alone or with others, in child initiated or adult supported play. Children plan their own learning and make choices about what they want to investigate. Staff encourage children to problem solve and reflect on their learning experiences.

The Nursery staff also implement Building Learning Power (BLP). This is an approach centred on cultivating "aptitudes" for life-long learning. We aim to encourage children to be resilient, resourceful in their approach to solving problems and to be reflective about their learning. Children can begin to see themselves as learners, and begin to understand that everyone is constantly learning, even adults!

On going records are kept of children's learning journey; these are shared with parents regularly. Most of our children move on to the Reception classes, and have siblings in the school.
