Brunel Nursery School - Our Mission Statement
We aim to provide a positive learning experience in a safe and respectful environment. We strive to teach an inspiring and inclusive curriculum that promotes a love of learning. We want our children to be cheerful and independent individuals, who reach their potential and are proud of their achievements.
Our motto: Learning Together
Welcome to Brunel Nursery School where our children attend either morning or afternoon sessions in our wonderful, well-resourced Early Years Learning environment!
My name is Mrs Rowe and I am the Nursery Manager and Teacher and Mrs Molyneux is our part time Nursery Teacher. Working with us are our very experienced Early Years practitioners , Mrs Hammond and Mrs Duckett.
All our staff are Key Workers for small groups of children and we know this really helps your child settle in and feel safe as they explore their learning with us.
At Brunel Nursery we believe learning should be fun and fantastic and know that our children learn, and remember their learning best, by “doing” and experiencing things first-hand. Every day we plan and provide exciting ‘learning through play’ activities, both indoors and outdoors, and we help your child to engage in all areas of the 'Early Years Foundation Stage' curriculum.
Every day children at Brunel also enjoy a healthy 'Snack and Chat' time, and Focus Learning Group activities planned for them with either myself, Mrs Molyneux, Mrs Hammond or Mrs Duckett.
Towards the end of each nursery session, following Tidy-Up Time, our children join in with action songs and music and movement in an All Together Squiggle & Shake Time and then settle down with us to enjoy a song, story or 'Talk-About' time in our carpet areas.
Brunel Nursery school is federated with St Matthew’s C of E Primary School and we share special events and visitors with our friends in the Robins' Reception class. Many Brunel children go on to join St Matthew’s Reception class at the end of their time in the Nursery and, in July, have the opportunity to spend time in the Robins' classroom with the lovely teachers there. We find this really helps children to look forward to 'Big School' and prepares them for this key transition!
All of us at Brunel Nursery sincerely look forward to welcoming you, and your child, as you begin your Nursery Early Learning Journey with us!
