Welcome

Our provision at Heathfields Infant Academy began operating in September 2020. We provide quality nursery and wrap around care for children from the age of 2 to 11 years old, as we also accept children from the nearby Wilnecote Junior Academy.

The nursery is based in a purpose-built room within the school premises and is registered for 24 children aged both two and three years old.
 

Wrap around care is provided in the school building and runs from 7:30am until 6:30pm Monday to Friday, term time. This is open to children who attend both Heathfields Infant Academy and Wilnecote Junior Academy.

Holiday clubs are open to children from all schools within the Trust.

Spring Term Updates

February 15 th 2021

"The children explored the forest area in the school grounds. We found lots of creepy crawlies and talked about their distinct features. We did some bark rubbings and then climbed the large tree and talked about what we could see from the top and the sounds we could hear. We then had lots of fun jumping in the mud and puddles and throwing the leaves up in the air"

Remembrance Day

The children enjoyed creating their own poppies using paper and paint. We talked about colours and shapes and why poppies are a symbol of remembrance. We all joined in with the two minute silence  by closing our eyes to think of our heroes.

September Update

29th September 2020

The children have settled really well over the last few weeks. They have formed good bonds with the teachers and a key worker system has now been established.

Now that children are more settled, we are working on a Nursery routine and embedding 'our golden rules', which the children really seem to like and are responding well to.

We would like to thank parents for their patience and understanding with the Covid rules in place (not entering the Nursery when dropping off and collecting children), we understand this is difficult and timely.

Nursery Information

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.

Care Club Information

Our wrap around care is provided within the security of the school building. Qualified staff plan a variety of activities for the children to participate in ranging from baking and craft, to team building challenges and sports.

 

Our breakfast club opens at 7:30 am and offers a choice of healthy breakfast options every day.

 

After school, the children are registered and offered fruit and a drink before joining in with the fun and games with their friends. Club starts at 3:00 pm and operates until 6:00 pm where, the catering team provide a snack for those children staying late.

Testimonials

We love our pride our Joy nursery. It's refreshing to be greeted with genuine happy smiles from teachers every morning. My son is always excited to go to school, I feel like the teachers genuinely care about my son and I feel at ease knowing he is so happy and confident  whilst he is there. I can't thank the teachers enough for giving us such a positive experience. 

We've used a few nursery's with my children in the past and this nursery genuinely has the best bunch of teachers I've come across. 

Where do I start! I am so with happy our decision to move our son to OPOJ at Heathfields. We have gone from crying at every drop off at our previous setting to running in with a big smile, no looking back. The development leaps have been amazing, the difference in his confidence, speech and communication in general have been nothing short of amazing. The staff are so friendly and helpful with parents and children, nothing is too much to ask and they always welcome the children enthusiastically into the nursery setting. It is the perfect place to ensure an easy transition into 'big school'. I would highly recommend OPOJ at Heathfields 😊

Wow what can I say. My little boy started at Heathfields OPOJ in September 2020. It was a strange time due to covid and all the restrictions that came with it, however we did manage to have 2 stay and play sessions where both me and my son could meet his teachers and have time to get used to the setting. 

We were both made to feel so comfortable and so welcome from the minute we arrived and this has been the same ever since. My son has thrived since starting and enjoys every minute of his time there. I have so much praise and admiration for all of the staff, they are truly amazing and my son adores all of his teachers. We love our wonderful OPOJ family! 

Our girls love coming to this nursery and all of their teachers. The staff are so friendly and really put me at ease especially on the first few sessions when the girls were getting used to coming. Really well set out with lots of lovely play areas. Highly recommended.
