Nursery staff

Chard School Nursery has a staff team consisting of Foundation Stage Practitioners who are specifically trained and experienced in the education and care of very young children.

Using the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance’, the Nursery staff work closely together to plan the best quality play and learning experiences for your child, making sure that the learning activities we present match their interests, abilities, and stage of development.

The Nursery team liaise closely with Reception staff to ensure a smooth transition, when the time comes for children to move on from the Nursery. Nursery and Reception children undertake shared activities from time to time, meaning that Nursery children are familiar with the staff from the Reception class.

Our ratios of adults to children are very good which means that we can give lots of support and individual attention to each child. The Nursery Supervisor is always available if you have any questions or concerns, and any member of the team is ready to help your child feel settled and happy.
