The nursery classes within Scotstown School opened in 1988. We have 40 morning places and 40 afternoon places. There are two morning classes and two afternoon class.
There are seven members of staff in nursery – 2 qualified teachers on a job share basis, 1 Senior Early Years Practitioner and 4 Early Years Practitioners. The staff work as a team to provide a quality education for your child.
The morning session begins at 8.45am and the children can arrive between 8.45am and 9.05am – all children should be in nursery by 9.05am.
The session ends at 11.55pm. All children should be collected by this time but can be collected from 11.35am onwards.
The afternoon session begins at 12.30pm and the children can arrive between 12.30pm and 12.50pm – all children should be in nursery by 12.50pm
The session ends at 3.40pm. All children should be collected by this time but children can be collected from 3.20pm onwards.
In order to benefit from all that nursery provides, children should attend regularly and arrive and be picked up punctually. Regular attendance is essential to ensure that every child achieves his/her potential.
If your child is ill, please contact us to let us know the reason for the absence. We need to have an emergency address and telephone number of a relative or friend, should your child become unwell in nursery. It is vital that this contact number is kept updated. If you have a change of emergency contact during the school year, please inform nursery as soon as possible.
Your child will require indoor shoes to wear in the nursery. We also have a nursery sweatshirt available from nursery at a cost of £9.00. This makes our nursery children the same as every other pupil in Scotstown School. Please put your child to school in comfortable clothes that do not have difficult buckles, buttons or belts on them. We ask that you put a change of clothing in your child’s bag i.e. socks, pants, trousers in case of any accidents happening during the nursery session. We also ask that you bring a box of tissues at the beginning of the school year to help cope with colds and sniffles!!
Snack money is payable every Monday and is £2.50 per week. If your child is absent for a whole week then we do not ask you to pay. However, if your child is absent for part of the week then we still require £1.50 as the snack shopping is done in advance.
