Welcome to Padstow Nursery
We are very fortunate to have our very own building based within the school grounds with have 2 indoor rooms and 3 outdoor spaces.
The larger of our two indoor rooms has a dedicated home corner, water or sand play, a variety of small world and construction resources for the children to choose from and our creative station to encourage children to express themselves through art and creativity.
The smaller of our 2 rooms has a book corner where we have a section of books ranging from fairy tales, classic children stories and fact books, we also encourage the children creativity and story telling by providing story sacks of the children's favourite stories to act out and re-tell the stories. In the rooms we also have a selection of mark-making, literacy and math resources for the children to choose from.
Our outdoor spaces offer the children an amazing opportunity to access the curriculum in an outdoor space. Our nature garden has various areas to explore nature including our log pile mini beast house, our wooded area named 'deep dark wood' and a variety of flower beds. We have our very own boat and treasure island for the children to go on imaginative adventures and a sunken sand pit. In the outdoor area we have 3 climbing frames, a wooded area and mud kitchen and outside our entrance we have a paved area.
In addition to our amazing nursery areas we a very fortunate to be able to use the school field, playground and science garden.
We would like to introduce the idea of a uniform to the nursery. It provides a sense of ‘belonging’ and encourages children to wear practical clothing suitable for the muckiest of activities! It also gets the older children into the swing of uniform before school starts.
We do, however, understand that children are growing rapidly at this age and we want to minimise the cost of the clothing.
So, we propose that the ‘uniform’ is as follows:
- Padstow School sweatshirt or jumper (can be tried on & purchased locally at Vivienne’s on Molesworth Street, Wadebridge or ordered on Wovina website)
- Any t-shirt underneath
- Any plain joggers / leggings
- Any trainers (velcro fastening please, not laces)
