NURSERY

Welcome

A very warm welcome to all of our new starters, as well as the children returning from the Summer term! We hope to make the transition into nursery as easy and as fun as possible. At St. Oswald’s the children are encouraged to play and explore, actively learn and think critically. We provide learning and social opportunities in both our indoor and outdoor areas.  We will be working hard on personal, social and emotional development, communication and language and physical development. Alongside this the children will be developing their skills and knowledge in literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design.
