Welcome to Fox Cubs Nursery

Fox Cubs Nursery is a warm and welcoming nursery, offering our youngest children a calm, happy and nurturing start to school life. In Fox Cubs we very much recognise the value of outdoor play and exploration and are very fortunate to enjoy a beautiful garden, as well as regular visits to our school woodland. Whether inside or outdoors, our nursery team recognise the importance of learning through play and putting children's interests at the heart of all we do. 

Mrs Moore is the class teacher and she has the brilliant support of Mrs Coulton, the nursery's teaching assistant.

Hours available include 15 hours free childcare for all children aged 3-4 (from the term after they turn 3), as well as 30 hours funded childcare for working parents of 3-4 year old children. Wrap-around care is usually available, although this is currently disrupted due to Covid-19 restrictions.

We love to share what we have been learning about in class, so please visit this page regularly to see all our exciting activities!

Traditional Tales

This half term we have been exploring traditional tales, including Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs and The Gingerbread Man. We have been recalling repeat refrains from the stories, retelling the stories in character and with small world characters, we have linked lots of our indoor and outdoor provision to our stories too. We have been busy with our outdoor learning and enjoying the autumnal weather and the autumnal natural objects we can explore in our garden and school grounds. 


Settling into Fox Cubs Class

September has been a busy month in nursery - we have had some children returning for another year in nursery, as well as lots of new faces joining us. We have spent this month settling into routines, making friends and exploring our provision indoors and outdoors. Our photos below show some of our adventures from September.
