Nursery Admissions

Nursery admissions are managed by the school - please contact the main office on 0161 344 2905 for further details.

The Ravensfield Nursery is a truly excellent start to your child's school journey. Children can attend on a part time or full time basis ( wrap around care is available if families meet the eligibility criteria).

2021-2022: Part time children attend either 8.30am-11.30am or 12.30 pm and 3.30pm and attend 3 hours each day from Monday to Friday.

All children are allocated to one of two keyworker groups and are met each day by their keyworker for registration and PSE activities. We support PSE, Communication Language and Literacy alongside Physical development initially moving to more focused subjects as the children develop.

The children have a taught maths and phonics input daily and focused activities are provided daily to support maths, topic and literacy development. The children have busy/time/ Child initiated learning for prolonged periods of each session where adults are able to support their play and individual development through observation and timed interactions. We have a full and active curriculum developed in line with Development matters and the school curriculum and provide opportunities for all children to work towards their individual potential in a supportive and nurturing environment.
