Holly Nursery

Welcome to Holly Nursery!


Mrs Laidler, Mrs Maynard, Mrs Parry and Mrs Callon are excited to welcome more new faces to Holly Nursery this term.  Although new beginnings can be daunting at first (especially for parents!) all the children who have joined us so far have made a fabulous start and have settled in really well.


This term Supertato and The Evil Pea are causing great excitement in The Early Years.  Evil Pea has been freezing Vegetables in ice and we have to find ways to set them free!  We have managed to trap some peas in jelly and enjoyed squishing it in our hands.  We are all waiting to see what the Evil Pea will do next!   


The weather has turned cold and frosty so it's a great opportunity for us to get out in the garden and explore ice and snow first hand.  We are looking forward to finding out about the Chinese culture and celebrating Chinese New Year and later this term we will be doing lots of fabulous Easter activities.  We hope to raise lots of money by buying noses and wearing something red on Red Nose Day and the whole school will be dressing up and sharing stories for World Book Day.  We can't wait to invite our parents for a stay and share a story session.


Special moment books

The children continue to add to their Special moments scrapbooks at home which they enjoy sharing with their friends in Holly. These books are personal to each of our children and are designed to give plenty of opportunities to celebrate all of the wonderful things they have done at home. They include anything special that has been achieved or done at home. We  love looking at the leaflets, tickets and photographs.  Special moment books are shared once a week in key groups to promote speaking and listening.


Our staff are extremely friendly and approachable, so if you do have any concerns, worries or questions, please don’t hesitate to come and talk to us.


Places available

We still have a few places available for September and offer a number of options for sessions.  We offer free 15 hours Nursery provision from children’s third birthday and 30 hour provision to eligible families. 15 hour options available are 5 mornings or 5 afternoons or 2 and half days (Mon and Tuesday all day including lunch + Wednesday morning).  Why not come along and visit us for  a look around and a chat.
