Welcome to Sawley Nursery.  

We have lots of activities to keep the children busy learning throughout their session such as construction, play dough kitchen, malleable art, small world, role play, reading, investigation, maths, writing, sand, water, fine motor skills and so much more!

Outside activities provide the opportunity for children to explore their gross motor skills using bats and balls, bikes, balancing beams etc.  As well as this children can play with small world, construction, reading, writing, sand and water etc. 

Each week your child will have 5 sessions with their Keyworker: Story, Tuning into words, Maths, Phonics and PSED.  The leavers will be having a Phase 1 phonics session daily. 


We have so much fun here at Sawley Nursery!! 



         Information for our new starters 



General Information




  • We have so much fun at Nursery and can get a bit messy! Child are provided with aprons however they still manage to get some on their clothes.  It is therefore a good idea to keep best clothes at home and use older clothes for Nursery. The children can wear a uniform but this is not compulsory. 
  • Please remember to label all of their clothes.
  • Please talk to any member of staff if you have any questions. 
  • Please encourage children to find their own peg and name card at the start of their session.  
  • Please read the newsletter for more information.
  • Please provide your children with a water bottle containing only water not juice.
  • Please let us know if there are any changes to your child's medical needs so we can amend your child's medical records.

Outdoor clothing and footwear

Please consider the weather when you bring your child to Nursery. If it is winter weather outside please ensure your child has sensible shoes or wellies and a waterproof coat. Even if it raining or snowing we like to take advantage of working outside in different weather conditions to increase learning opportunities. Likewise if the weather is hot please ensure your child has had some sun cream applied (as we can not apply it in Nursery) and they come to Nursery with a sun hat and water bottle.   




Snack Time 




Everyday your child will have snack time with a healthy option for snack with a drink of either milk or water.  On a Friday the children have a treat of toast and we ask for a contribution of £1 a term towards the toast.   If there are any special dietary requirements then please fill in a medical form and inform staff.
