Children have the right to relax and play.


New Parents

The first day at nursery can sometimes be a bit worrying for children (and Parents/Carers) especially if they haven’t attended a preschool setting before. You are very welcome to stay and play with your child on their first day, usually for an hour. Arrangements for the following day can be made with a member of staff. It is important to us that children have a positive first experience of nursery. If you have any important information to share about your child, such as medical conditions, likes and interests, or any questions about nursery please see a member of nursery staff.


Wonderful Weather

It is important for all children to wear sensible footwear and coat as the weather gets wetter and colder. We encourage the children to bring their own welly boots to use outside; these can be passed to a member of staff. When children are this age they are still learning to dress and undress independently, so we ask for them to wear shoes with velcro fastenings so they are easy to take off and put on. Please remember to name all clothing and footwear.



At St. Oswald's we place a high emphasis of the importance of good attendance, starting in Nursery.  We encourage pupils to achieve attendance of 96% which is national average.  There are lots of ways that we encourage and celebrate good attendance: text send home weekly to update them of their child's attendance, certificates sent home for weekly 100% attendance and termly 100% certificates and prizes.  The children work toward their TREE targets (see key information section for more information) - one of the targets to be a golden apple at the end of the year is to achieve 96% attendance.  

Nursery can be one of the first places that your child may mix with other children and they often catch lots of coughs and colds from each other.  If your child is suffering with a cold it is important that you still bring them in to Nursery so that they can continue to build their resilience to illnesses.  If we feel that your child is too poorly to be in school then we will contact you to collect them.  

Please contact school and leave a message if your child will not be attending their session due to illness.


Stay and Play

We love to invited parents to join in with our sessions and 'stay & play' is the ideal time to do this. Each 'stay and play' session has a theme linked to the areas of development and parents are able to spend time looking at their child's learning journey and observations.
