Our provision at Ankermoor Primary Academy began operating in September 2019 in the school building.
We register children from their second birthday and accept both the thirty hour and fifteen hour funding in addition to paid for sessions.
We have a maximum of 24 children in any given session and operate on a ratio of 1:8. All staff are a minimum of level 3 qualified in early years, and hold a current paediatric first aid certificate.
In Our Pride Our Joy nurseries we follow a 'child initiated' curriculum which enables children to follow their own interests and learn through quality play, whilst being supported by qualified and experienced staff. Staff are trained to observe the children and look for 'teachable moments' in which to intervene and support the child to their next steps.
We have full access to the outdoor areas throughout the sessions and in all weathers, so children can choose their preferred area to learn within a well thought out, enabling environment.
Parents are kept informed of their child's progress through secure online accounts which they can read, enjoy and add to so that they can play a part in the 'learning journey' their child travels along whilst with us.
Breakfast club opens at 7:20 am and operates from the school hall.
Parents book places in advance to ensure our adult:child ratios are maintained at all times and qualified staff provide activities for the children to access.
A healthy breakfast choice is provided by the on site catering team.
My child loves to come to nursery daily. He loves the routine and the amount of fun they have. The nursery staff go above and beyond to fulfil the children’s interests. He enjoys learning Makaton and outside play. No weather is bad weather for outside play. All the staff are very friendly, and approachable who love our children like their own!
When you trust others to look after your child as well as you do yourself, you know you’ve found the perfect nursery. Ankermoor has been that for my 3 daughters.
My youngest daughter adores nursery & her teachers. She happily goes in every day & leaves with a smile excited to tell me all she’s done & learnt. And I’m forever seeing progress.
I’d recommend the nursery to anyone! x
