3-4's Maintained Nursery

At Platt Bridge Community School we have 60 nursery places (30 am & 30 pm) for children aged 3-4 years. Parents/carers are entitled to 15 hours free nursery education per week, term time only, for their child. As we work in partnership with Platt Bridge Community Childcare we are able to provide additional childcare sessions to offer parents more flexibility in accessing their child's nursery place. The nursery is open 8 am to 6 pm for 50 weeks a year.

The Nursery is organised across two rooms with access to a purpose built outdoor area. The Nursery day is organised into short sessions of small group focus activities and longer periods when the children can choose from the range of activities provided both indoors and outdoors. Some of the activities that your child may access include:

  • Role play and dressing up
  • Construction and small world, e.g. farm, dinosaurs, dolls house etc.
  • Malleable materials (play dough, clay, etc.)
  • Writing area
  • Sand
  • Water
  • Table top activities, e.g. jigsaws, games, tasks to promote fine motor skills etc.
  • Book area
  • Making music

Children are able to move freely between the indoor and outdoor area to have the opportunity to participate in large physical play. Therefore, they will need to bring a coat and wear suitable shoes as much of children's learning will take place outdoors!

The children are divided into key person groups for registration, discussions and other small group activities. Each child is allocated their own key person before admission into the Nursery.

At Platt Bridge we also offer day care places for children aged 2-3 years and 3-4 years,  before, after school and holiday club for the children aged 3 - 11 years.
