Welcome to Summerfield Primary Nursery /Foundation Stage 1

Summerfield Primary Nursery/ FS1 is a term time Nursery which encourages children from three years old to learn in a play based environment, utilising both indoor and outdoor spaces. We form part of the Foundation Stage unit with Reception / Foundation Stage 2.

Through enabling the children to express their ideas and imagination, each child develops their own unique potential within a secure and calm environment.

The Nursery room is light and spacious with resources and toys for every stage of development for the children to lead their own learning during free choice time  Nursery tourThere are two carpet sessions in each session to develop maths and literacy skills.

 Free play both inside and out, is encouraged. Nursery children have the opportunity to join with Reception/ FS2 children in the purpose built Foundation Stage outdoor space, which gives the Nursery children the opportunity to extend their learning and ideas from their older peers. We also make use of the school playground and woodland areas, such as taking seasonal walks to notice changes in the natural world. We also use the woodland area to listen and act out our favourite stories such as ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’

To keep energy levels topped-up, the children have a healthy mid-session snack of milk or water and fruit. The children are encouraged to chat with their friends whilst enjoying their snack and discuss healthy eating. Children attending all day can bring a packed lunch or have a school meal. The school is committed to being a Healthy School and as such packed lunches must follow the guidance to guide our children into making healthy choices for life.


As well as lots of outdoor play on the bikes, scooters, climbing equipment and running space, the children also take part in daily exercises such as ‘Wake up Shake up’, Just Dance and Cosmic Kids yoga.

The Nursery Teacher and Nursery Nurse staff are committed to the welfare of the children in their care. Anxious children soon gain confidence through the one-to-one attention and encouragement they receive. Each child is allocated a key worker who will develop a special relationship with your child. Reception /FS2 staff also support and guide children during outdoor play and joint FS1 and 2 activities.
