Nursery School
Nursery School  

The Kindergarten is open throughout the year except for Bank Holidays and for one week at Christmas. Children are accepted from 12 months to 5 years, and are able to attend all year or term time only, when the standard school holidays would apply.

Fair View is registered with Ofsted, and as a result also offers places to children in receipt of nursery funding. Providers of this scheme are required to offer 5 sessions per week on a minimum of 2.5 hours per session on their own or in partnership with another provider, i.e. a local maintained Children at tableschool or private/voluntary provider. Children are still able to attend for more than 5 sessions per week, or to extend their session times for day care reasons, with parents paying for the extra sessions/times involved. Currently funding is available to all children the term after their 3rd birthday.

The following are just some of the activities that are on offer at the Kindergarten. Your child will be free to choose which activities he cares to participate in, but through our trained staff, he will be encouraged to join in with as wide a variety as possible.

Painting and craft work: through use of paint, crayons, chalk, pencils, scissors, clay and dough we aim to encourage the development of self-expression, colour and shape recognition, as well as developing greater manipulative skills. 1 2 3 4 Arts and Crafts

Music and movement:your child will learn both new and traditional nursery rhymes and Tambourinesongs, use percussion instruments and learn action songs, finger rhymes and dances.

Story time: we encourage the children to sit and listen quietly to stories and rhymes, either in small groups or individually.

Imaginative play: the Kindergarten has a home corner where your child can play freely with others, dressing up if desired and act out roles from real life or his imagination. Tow truck

Outdoor play: when the weather is suitable your child will be able to play outside in the large Playgroundgardens under close supervision. Climbing frames, swings, ride-on toys and a sand pit are provided to encourage physical skills.

Through taking part in these activities we are able to offer a curriculum which develops the 6 areas of learning approved by the DfEE, helping the children to progress through the Foundation Stage which will be continued during their Reception Year at school.
