Mrs Hurley

Hello and welcome to Nursery,

My name is Mrs. Hurley and I am ably supported by Mrs. Parkinson, Miss. Hastie and Mrs. McNicholas.


In our Nursery we follow the Early Years Framework to plan learning activities for your child to develop them in Literacy, Communication and Language, Mathematics, Personal and Social Development, Physical Development and in Knowledge and Understanding of the World. 


We are very excited to be supporting your child in their journey of learning in Nursery.

Friday 4th March - World book day!

The children loved taking on the role of the dentist and we had a lovely visit from Claire the dentist to talk to us about the importance of brushing our teeth. This week the children have enjoyed learning about transport and travelling to the beach and the park on our role play bus.

The afternoon children had lots of fun taking on the role of a dentist and this week learning all about transport and going to the swimming pool on our role play bus. They have also had lots of fun outdoors exploring and helping each other along the balance beams.

We focus on a different topic each half term providing a stimulating, vibrant, fun and caring environment for each child to grow, develop confidence and reach their full potential.


We encourage independence, speech, social skills and self regulation. See below for ways to support your child develop these skills.


Important information


Every Thursday your child will come home with a book of their choice, please read with your child and ask them questions about the pictures and about the story. Return the book the following Thursday to receive a new book and write in the diary provided.


Jo Jingles

Jo Jingles is a fun and exciting music and dancing session for the children to take part in, the sessions are Thursday Morning and Tuesday afternoon.



Swimming is on a Friday morning. If there is more demand we will look at providing an afternoon lesson. Lessons are held at Gorlands in Longridge, they provide transport with fitted car seats. The cost is £5 per week. There are 10 spaces available.



The topic for the rest of this term is Transport, we will be looking at all different kinds of land, air and sea vehicles, the sounds they make, what makes them work and how we travel to nursery.


How you can support your child

  • Let them help get dressed in the morning
  • Ask them to put on their own shoes and coat
  • Ask open ended questions and allow time to answer (at least 10 seconds)
  • Give choices - would you like an apple or a banana?
  • Read lots of stories or even make up your own! 
  • Listen to your child and ask how their day went at nursery
  • Give lots of praise
  • Encourage them to use the toilet and wash their own hands

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to come and talk to me or one of the team


Thank you 

Mrs. Hurley
