Welcome to our Whitehouse Nursery - Butterfly Class

Our Whitehouse Nursery is an integral part of our school. On joining us, from the term after their third birthday, your child will immediately feel part of our school community.

Our Nursery team is really excited for your child to be starting their learning journey with us!

In Butterfly Class, we love to learn through explorative, imaginative, creative, and sensory play experiences.

Children have the opportunity to learn in our engaging nursery environment where they can play inside or outside, whilst taking part in a mixture of adult led and child initiated activities throughout each day.

We have key group times where children are encouraged to communicate their ideas, ask or answer questions, and will take part in activities based around a key idea or new concept.

These sessions will introduce and develop skills within the areas of the EYFS curriculum. Through regular and ongoing observations of the children, staff plan activities and enrich the environment to cater to individual children’s needs. We recognise that every child is unique and learns at their own pace.

Please speak to Lisa Morris Nursery Lead or your child’s key person if you have any questions or concerns. If you would like to contact us directly, you can email Lisa Morris on  Nursery@whitehouseprimary.co.uk
