New Starters

We have compiled some information about our Nursery for our new starters – we’re excited for you to join the St. Leo’s family!

Hours
Nursery hours are 8:30 – 11:30 am.
Please ensure your child is on time arriving at school, this ensures they don’t miss out on any learning.

Snack
We provide snack food in addition to milk and fruit in Nursery. We ask for £5 every half-term to fund this snack food.

Uniform
We use the St. Leo’s and Southmead Primary uniform. Please make sure everything is labelled with your child’s name to ensure it safely makes its way home!

Outdoor Play
In Early Years we play outside no matter the weather (within reason!), please ensure your child has suitable clothing for all weathers. For example,
Rainy day? Warm coat with a hood and wellies
Sunny day? Sun cream applied at home and a sunhat
Snowy day? Hat, scarf and gloves

Ready for School
Some things you can work on before your child starts nursery
* Toileting – practise using the toilet. Work on using the toilet and cleaning themselves independently.
* Dressing – allow time for your child to practise undressing and dressing. The morning may not be the best time, maybe after a bath or before bedtime. Practise putting on and taking off their coat and wellies.
* Maths – practise recognising numbers, counting, shapes and colours.
* Literacy- practise recognising their own name.
