A Day at Culford Nursery

The Nursery day is structured in line with a traditional school day which enables our Pre-Schoolers to become accustomed to the daily routine in good time for their transition into Reception.


On arrival the children are encouraged to find their named butterfly on the lines outside the classrooms and place them on the forest scene opposite. Each child will be signed in as they arrive. They will then settle in by choosing which of the available activities they wish to do until tidy-up time and registration at 9am.

Picking Up

Pick up times from nursery are at 1.10pm after lunch and outside play, or at 3.30-4.00pm. The door will be opened at 3.30pm and the children will be individually passed to the parent/carer collecting them.
