Welcome to Joseph Locke Nursery
This year our nursery class is called the 100 Acre Wood. This is where Winnie the Pooh and his friends live! Miss F O'Dowd is Nursery teacher in the morning session and Miss A O'Dowd is the Nursery teacher in the afternoon session. Miss Holdsworth is our Nursery Nurse and she works in the Nursery all day with all of the children. Our morning session is 8.45-11.45 and the afternoon session is 12.30-3.30 We also have places for children to access 30 hours in our nursery setting.

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 Hundred Acre Wood 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.
