Our key values underpin all we do at Seymour Park; we Respect, Care, and Grow.
This is where our children begin their Seymour Park Experience and join our school family. Our EYFS curriculum allows children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience, and become creative thinkers. We aim to provide a fun, secure, challenging, and rich educational environment that enables each individual to thrive! Parents are valued as first educators and every effort is made to inform them of the EYFS curriculum whilst providing them with the tools to continue learning at home.
The Seymour Park EYFS curriculum is designed to develop the characteristics of effective learning:
● Creating and thinking critically – children have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas, and develop strategies for doing things.
● Active learning – children keep on trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy their achievements.
● Playing and exploring – children investigate and experience things, and ‘have a go’.

Hello Nursery parents and carers.
It’s been lovely welcoming you all and beginning to settle the children into Nursery. We have especially enjoyed seeing all the children come into nursery with their mice and learning all the mice names too. Every child now has been allocated their key worker it will be Mrs O’Neill our nursery teacher or Miss Phillips, Mrs Kharodia, Mrs Alla or Mrs Nagdi our nursery teaching assistants.
We are focusing on developing children’s well – being and independence and using a variety of books to support this including ‘The colour monster’ by Anna Llenas and ‘Ruby’s worry’ by Tom Percival. This half term we will also be focusing on the story Pete the cat by Eric Litwin and James Dean. We will be learning the story and acting it out too. To accompany this we will be using the story ‘That’s not my kitten’ by Fiona Watt as our focused reading book.
We will be sending out some of the activities and learning children have been doing via evidence me usually every weekend. If you want to add any evidence please do so and we will look at it and add it to their learning journeys too.
Some learning ideas will be added to google classroom every week as well if you would like to have a look at them.
During this term all nursery children will be involved in kick – start a PE activity which will take place each Friday in the nursery garden. Please can you send children in trainers each Friday in case it is their turn to take part.
Please remember to label all your child’s belongings, including hats and gloves.
Please also label your child’s nursery mouse. As they all the same and we don’t want them getting mixed up! You could personalise them in some way, maybe adding a hair bobble as a necklace or making a hat or jacket or ribbon around their head.
Our nursery times are 8.45 – 11.45 (doors opening from 11.35 for pick up) 12.15 – 3.15 (doors opening from 3.00pm for pick up)
