Morning Sessions: 9.00am - 12.00 pm    Afternoon Sessions: 12.30pm - 3.30pm

All day sessions (30 hours) 9.00am - 3.00pm

We also offer an additional 1/2 hour session for 30 hour children at the end of day (£2 a session).


The children will need a change of clothes in a draw string bag to stay on their peg in

case of any accidents or if they get wet while playing at Nursery.


In the wet weather the children will still have access to the outdoor areas, so they will need a warm/waterproof coat and suitable shoes.


Children staying for 30 hours will have the option of bringing a packed lunch or purchasing a school dinner.


Monday is our day for Commando Joe training or Forest school.

Thursday is our PE day.

We ask for all children to come to school in joggers or leggings with pumps/ trainers

to ensure they can take part in all activities safely on these days.

Our new topic for Autumn 1 is:




Our World


In this topic we will be settling into Nursery life, feeling safe and making friends. We will focus on supporting your child's Prime areas of delvelopment:

Personal, Social, Emotional Development (PSED), helping your child feel settled and make new friends,

Physial Development (PD), encouraging your child look after their self care needs, such as toileting,

Communication and Language (CAL), providing opportunities to support your childs listening and speaking skills.


We will talk about what makes us special, how we are different and how we are the same. We will notice the changes in our lives (starting Nursery) and the world around us (seasonal changes). 

We will begin to develop our fine motor skills by using our fingers to cut, rip, squeeze, tear, wiggle and stretch. All of this finger exercise will strengthen our hands ready to write.


Please visit the 'gallery' page to see lots of photos of our fantastic learning experiences.


*At home talk to your child about nursery and their home lives*


This half term we will visit the farm to really explore how things grow. We will even have our own little feathery farm visitors to nursey.


We look forward to having a fantastic start to Nursery!


Home learning



At Delves we believe when home and school work together to support children they will grow and succeed in a safe and caring environment.

We will use Marvellous Me to let you know all of the WOW moments your child has in school.

 If your child does something fantastic at home don't forget to fill out a WOW voucher star for them and hand them in to any member of staff in Nursery.

You can also email any work, videos or photos to

Please put Nursery or Little Diggers (for the 2 year olds) in the subject heading.
