Thank you for your patience today. We have allocated places to the children of essential key workers and if your child has been allocated a place, we will have phoned you. If you have not heard from us, then please assume that unfortunately your application was unsuccessful.

Welcome to our Nursery at Clarendon Infants' School.

Welcome everyone! For the time being, our nursery is closed to most pupils. So that we can keep in touch, there are activity sheets here that have 12 suggestions of things you might like to try at home. All are activities that are the same or similar to those we would have been doing in nursery. I have tried to adapt activities so that they can be done at home as I realise you may not have the same things as everyone else. I have started a photo gallery with pictures you can use for some of the activities. The first sheet is the one given out before school closed, the second is the latest update. More will be added. You will also find useful information on the sheets. There are also links to other websites you may find interesting. If nursery letters are released, they will be added here along with any other information that might be useful. 

Please keep checking this page as more information will be added regularly.

Meanwhile, try not to worry about your child's progress - everyone across the country is affected in the same way. Look on the time as a bonus, extra time to spend with your child, learning together, creating memories and building deeper relationships. Have fun playing together - I shall look forward to hearing all about your adventures when we get back together again soon.

Easter Hat Competition

Sadly, our Easter hat competition and parade can no longer take place. However, you can still make one at home, using anything you can find to decorate an old hat and then have fun parading it around. Perhaps you can take a photo of your results and we may be able to look at them at a later date. I shall write to the Easter Bunny and see if he can visit when we are all back at Nursery!

Bedtime Stories

Nursery 'Book at Bedtime' was being developed to support children at home, as there is a strong link between the number of books children experience and long term expectations. Our current situation has interrupted this, however, it is still possible to listen to them. These stories were designed to be listened to, along with the book borrowed from nursery. Alas, the books are still in nursery waiting for our return! Meanwhile, you can listen to them and imagine the pictures, or you may have your own copies at home you can use. Either way, listen and enjoy and Good Night, sleep well!

Brown Bear Brown Bear by Bill Martin and Eric Carle

This story was one of our focus books this year. It is full of repeating phrases that make it easy to join in with.

Welcome to our Nursery at Clarendon Infants' School.

We are a 29 place Nursery, open from 8.55am to 11:55am. Clarendon Nursery welcomes children in the term after their third birthday and is situated at the bottom of the school playground. Our Nursery teacher is Mrs Riordan and Mrs Wallis and Mrs Matthews are our teaching assistants.

The Nursery provides a safe, secure, happy and stimulating environment and follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Outside, Clarendon Nursery has a large fully enclosed outdoor area with lots of exciting play equipment and activities. In Nursery, we learn through purposeful play and exploration. We plan a range of play activities to help our children progress in each of the areas of learning and development.
