What is nursery education?…
Nursery education is found in nursery schools or nursery units attached to primary schools. Children aged 3-4 years attend daily. There is no daily charge, all places are free places. There is a nominal weekly charge for food and trips. Lunch is also provided and at present costs £2.40 per day, unless you are entitled to free school meals. Nursery education premises are purpose built and staffed by qualified teachers and qualified nursery assistants. Ravenscroft got a fabulous, brand new nursery school in September 2009. It is a state of the art school which is exceptionally well resourced. It has an extensive outdoor play area.
Why choose nursery education?
Nursery education offers children the best possible start to their educational life. Recent research demonstrates that children receiving quality nursery education are being provided with a head start to life long learning. In nursery schools/units teachers and nursery assistants provide a carefully planned and structured learning environment.
