We at St Christopher’s Nursery understand that making decisions about the best possible childcare can be a daunting experience, especially for new parents. We here at St Christopher’s Nursery believe in creating and maintain a positive relationship with all our families. We value every family’s uniqueness, and we do this by having transparency, honest open ended relationships based on mutual trust, understanding and respect.
One of the things we focus on here at St Christopher’s, is childhood nutrition. Children need the right balance of food and nutrients to develop and grow.
We take great care to provide children with nutritious and wholesome snacks, prepared by fully qualified professionals. We plan our daily snacks to include fresh and varied options that are suitable for each age group, and also cater for all individual dietary needs.

Further parent support
We will encourage and promote a two-way flow of information, knowledge and expertise.
You will be invited to further meetings in the new academic year that explain how we plan, teach, and assess your child, how we teach phonics and maths, and how you can support at home.
Here at St. Christopher’s Nursery, we encourage parental involvement with homework, to establish a firm partnership between school and home, to set good habits and to show value in their homework and learning.
We encourage parents to provide any necessary help, especially in the case of any set practical activities. Children will also benefit from sharing what they have learnt.
Parents and staff working together in partnership are important to develop the home learning environment.
We are keen to involve parents in the transition process and will share ideas with you as to what you can do at home to support your child in being ready to start school.
We ask that all parents/carers drop their children/child off by the main gate, where a member of the EYFS team will come along to them up and take them safely into the Early years. Please remember that the morning sessions teaching begins at 9.00, therefore we humbly ask that children come at least 15 minutes before the learning session commences. This is so that it avoids any disruption in the curriculum content being taught.
Your children will spend a considerable amount of time engaging in the continuous provision and may get messy. Please bare this in mind and send a change of spare clothes. We ask that you send a pair of wellies to school with your child, as we are outdoors in all weathers.
