Children attend Parkside Nursery for 15 hours per week, either for five morning sessions or five afternoon sessions. Morning Nursery sessions run from 8.40 am to 11.40 am, and afternoon sessions from 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm. Each child is allocated a Key Person from the staff team above. Please see the Notice Board in the Nursery cloakroom if you are unsure of your Key Person.
We encourage Nursery children to wear Parkside school uniform. However, please ensure that your child is able to adjust their own clothing when going to the toilet - jogging bottoms may be easier than school trousers with zips and buttons. Your child will need a pair of wellington boots, a waterproof coat and a complete change of clothes which should be kept in school at all times. Jewellery is not permitted other than simple stud earrings.
Children have access to water, milk and a piece of fruit during their Nursery session. It is not necessary to send any food or drink into Nursery.
We celebrate birthdays by lighting candles on our special cake and singing the children's favourite songs. You may send in sweets or individual cakes to share with the other children but please ensure these do not contain nuts or gelatine as some children are unable to eat these.
