Epsom Primary and Nursery School offer high quality, teacher led grant maintained nursery places for three and four year-olds. This includes children who will turn three in the autumn term and will therefore attend nursery for two years.
In our purpose built nursery, which opened in September 2013, we are able to offer 52 places at any one time, which is the equivalent of 104 places across the different attendance patterns. The total number of places offered will depend on the attendance patterns chosen, and the number of parents taking up the full school day attendance model.
Our nursery building has its own self-contained outdoor area. In addition, the children explore the wider school environment visiting the school field, cookery room, enchanted learning and technology suite and the playground.
The ratio of staff is always a minimum of 1 member of staff to 10 children (EYFS statutory requirements is minimum of one to 13). Additional adults support learning and development in the nursery such as a specialist trained speech and language assistant, a cookery enrichment provider, students and volunteers. This means on most days the ratio of adults to children is 1 to 8. We maintain a 1:4 ratio for children under 3 years until they turn of age.
If you would like your child to have milk at school, please see the link for further details.
School milk is available FREE for children under five and around £14 per term for over fives.
Learning through play and exploration is a priority, each child is assigned a key person who ensures the opportunities provided meet their needs.
Topics covered throughout the year includes seasons, weather, celebrations, animals, people who help us, transport, seaside, dinosaurs, pirates, treasure, kings and queens, space, growth and growing, gardens and minibeasts. Topics are chosen to meet children’s needs and interests but also to link with key events throughout the school year.
