THE LIMES NURSERY SCHOOL
VISION

Welcome to The Limes Nursery School.  We are situated in the Whitehall area of Easton, next to Whitehall Primary School. The Nursery School has been open for 40 years.  We are a diverse, inclusive Nursery.
We work holistically with children and families
.  We believe that all children have the right to the very best possible start in life and work cooperatively with families from all communities.
We have a long history of teaching children through open-ended play.  We help children to

be independent, to make choices and form new relationships.  Part of this is, of course,

about learning how to co-operate and follow nursery routines.
We hope that they will leave us as enthusiastic learners, confident communicators

and with a love of books and stories.  We are fortunate to have a large garden

area which gives children excellent opportunities to play and explore.

Partnership with families

Our partnership with parents is a big part of our work.

You know so much about your child.

Your support and encouragement will make a big difference to their learning.

Special Educational Needs

We offer an inclusive approach that enables all children to participate in activities at their own individual level and to experience success. If there are concerns that a child may have a behavioural, emotional, physical or learning difficulty we will always discuss this with you. If necessary we will together refer to specialist agencies that are available to us (e.g. Speech Therapist, Educational Psychologist; Health Visitor or Paediatrician).

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Rachel Barnwell.

Tapestry

Sharing your child’s learning 

How we share important examples of what your child is learning in nursery, and how you can share information about your child’s learning at home
  • We use a secure online platform called Tapestry

  • Please download the app for iOS or Android.

We use Tapestry for 4 reasons:

  • To share important examples of children’s learning and play with parents

  • To learn from parents about children’s key play, learning and life events at home

  • To encourage children to talk about their learning with parents and staff

  • To help parents with ideas for supporting their children’s learning at home
