Welcome to Joseph Locke Nursery
This year our nursery classes are called Henri Rousseau. Mrs Scully is the nursery teacher, Miss Holdsworth is the nursery nurse and Miss Asquith is the teaching assistant,but we are part of a Foundation stage unit led by Miss Rothery FS2 , and so have lots of other caring staff who help us in our work and play. We have two 3 hour sessions - a morning and an afternoon session for children taking up 15 hour free places. We also offer a number of 30 hour places for working parents.

Our nursery is currently a 78 place setting, offering 39 places per session. Each session runs for 3 hours each day. Most of our children have the 15 hour free child care and choose either a morning or an afternoon session, but we also offer 30 hour free child care places for working parents, where children stay for both sessions and have their lunch in the nursery. We believe in making our nursery as inclusive as is possible to all children,; where the children can freely, explore, investigate, create and develop good relationships and foundations for the future.

FS1 Henri Rousseau Information

We have continuous indoor and outdoor provision, where children can choose activities from small world, construction, creative art areas, water play and role play to name a few. These areas are set up by the adults in the unit, but are often resourced according to the needs and interests of the children. As well as these activities, the children will also work regularly with an adult, focusing on specific objectives from the EYFS curriculum. Continuous observations are made to monitor progress and ensure that our children have quality experiences that allow them to develop strong learning characteristics.
