St. Timothy’s is a 50/50 Nursery.
TRANSITION – LEARNING FRIENDS
As the Nursery is on site a very successful transition programme is in place using Curriculum for Excellence as the basis for planning Learning and Teaching. “Learning Friends” is our transition programme, which helps our pre-school children become familiar with the primary school environment. Both morning and afternoon children are formed into groups and take part in the “Learning Friends” programme on a regular basis.
The children are so excited at being able to join the Pr.1 classes and teachers for a session every three weeks. Lots of exciting activities have been planned for by the nursery and infant staff. The benefits of this programme both for Pr.1 children and our nursery children are immeasurable and we are delighted to witness the increased confidence children display at this crucial time in their development.
Outdoor Learning is also a strong feature within the Nursery making great use of our well-resourced outdoor area.
