Purley Nursery School and Children’s Centre, London:
Purley Nursery School and Children´s Centre in Croydon in London, has a fine tradition of nursery education spanning fifty years. Purley Nursery School and Children’s Centre offers integrated Education and Care places for 3 and 4 year olds and a range of provision to support families within the Community. We are open 7.45 a.m. – 6.00 p.m. across 49 weeks of the year. We have a highly qualified multi-professional team of Early Years teachers and Early Years Educators. While your child is with us, she/he learns to be an independent, happy and confident person. Staff carefully plan activities across the whole environment that support all six areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We believe that children learn by ‘doing’ supported by discussion with an interested adult.
Research has shown that children learn more in the first five years than at any other time in their lives. We will:
1. establish strong links with parents, involving them in their children's progress and the ways in which they learn, recognising the crucial role of parental involvement in their child's education.
2. ensure that the transition from home to school and later from Nursery on to Reception Class is a happy time.
3. value and promote the diversity of race, culture, beliefs and faiths which each child brings.
We aim to provide high quality teaching and learning experiences which will enable every child to become a happy and confident learner, recognising that each child will develop at their own pace and in their own way physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally.
All Croydon Children’s Centres’ services are planned around the five ‘Every Child Matters’ Themes…developed by Government in consultation with what children saw as the five most important issues, which are:
* Being healthy
* Staying safe
* Enjoying and achieving
* Making a positive contribution
* Achieving economic well-being
Early Years Foundation Program for for three and four year olds; Preschool Program; Full-time Programs; Part-time Programs. Our curriculum follows all six areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS): Creative; Physical; Communication, Language and Literacy; Mathematical; Personal, Social and Emotional; Knowledge and Understanding of the World.
We realise the importance of establishing close links between home and school. Staff visit families who are new to the Centre before their child starts if they would like to take up this opportunity. These visits have proved to be of great benefit to parents, children and staff and the settling-in process can be eased as a consequence. However, even though you may have been visited at home, our building, staff and children may be new to your child and she/he may initially feel anxious at being left (even if she/he has previously attended another nursery). Our 'Settling In’ booklet will hopefully provide re-assurance if you are new to the Centre.
A member of staff will arrange for you to stay with your child for as much time that she/he needs until she/he feels confident in your leaving and being in new surroundings with new people. We value the time you spend with us in the early days, and it gives you a good opportunity to meet all staff and see what the children will be doing. When you do go, always tell your child that you are going and will be coming back soon. By being honest, your child learns to trust and have confidence in us as well as you.
Each year we hold fund raising events. In the past these have included a Christmas Sponsored Treasure Hunt and a Summer Sponsored Event. Proceeds are put into the School Fund which enables us to buy into extra-curricula activities for children e.g. musicians; puppet shows etc. We also raise funds throughout the year by Book Sales and other similar events.
