Barn Owl Nursery – SCARNING

Between the ages of approximately 3 and 4 years old children progress into our Barn Owl Nursery.

Within our Barn Owl Nursery our children are offered a curriculum which is designed to provide them with a structured platform to build upon when commencing school. Our aim is to work very closely with all of the local Infant Schools and, during the summer term, we invite all of the relevant Reception Class Teachers into our Nursery in order that they can observe our children within their own familiar surroundings. 

Our Barn owl nursery is divided into four separate areas.

Main Nursery

Our main Barn Owl classroom offers our children a craft area with sand and water table top activities and an extensive role play imaginative play area. Our sand and water area offers dry and wet sand alongside various resources. Our extensive imaginative area offers versatile furniture that can be adapted to become anything the children’s imagination will let it be. The role play area is arranged in an accessible way to encourage our children to explore and handle resources whilst put in believable places. We have the luxury of also having two separate toilet and sink areas which are accessed directly from both rooms to encourage independent skills.

Curriculum Room/School readiness area.

Our curriculum room is situated adjacent to our main Barn Owl nursery and offers the children a completely new environment.

Within our curriculum room we offer our children with the opportunity to join in with group time at the start of each session and story time at the end. We also offer our children with the opportunity to access information technology which is in the form of children's specific fire tablets. These can be accessed on our IT table area or can easily be transported to the comfy cushion area within our curriculum room.

Our curriculum room also offers our Barn Owl children the opportunity to read from a selection of age appropriate books. Our book area contains floor cushions where children can snuggle with a friend or a staff member and look at books within a calm environment.

Barn Owl Library

Our Barn Owl library offers parents and children the opportunity to view and borrow from a selection of age appropriate books and share these together at home.

We do offer a discount in Nursery for two children attending from the same family and a discount in Hoots if their brother or sister attends Nursery. This discount is a reduction in fees of 20p per hour. We are registered with the Norfolk Department of Education and do participate in the Government funded Nursery “voucher” scheme. This scheme is available to all three year old children and for eligible two year old children. The basis of the scheme is that the Government will provide an allowance which could be used to obtain a maximum of either 12 hours  or 25 hours per week throughout the duration of the whole year. Please note that our morning funded only sessions are from 7.45am to 12.45pm with our afternoon funded only sessions being from 1.00pm to 6.00pm with a full day being 8.00am – 6.00pm. Further details of the scheme are available upon request. Please note that we do ask that children attend nursery for a minimum of two sessions each week. Please note that our fee structure is correct as at September 17 and is subject to being reviewed again in May 2018.
