At Thorpe Hesley Primary School we have a vibrant and caring Nursery where children begin their learning journey, catering for children from the age of three. This is a place full of happiness where children learn many key aspects. They have a rich curriculum with many opportunities to learn. They have a continuous provision where children are able to play and learn in a stimulating, welcoming environment. We teach the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. 

Class 1 is our Nursery which is split into the two smaller classes of Willow and Oak. We have two yearly intakes – one in September and one in January. We accept children from the term after they turn 3.  We also cater for both full and part-time children. 

We are always very busy in Class 1 and we love learning! We have lots of quality outdoors provision and encourage children to spend time outside whatever the weather. 

Over the year we host open evenings so that you can come and view our school and provision. If you would like further details on this then please contact the office to book in.

The adults in Class 1 are:

Mrs Oakley (Class Teacher)

Mrs Cole (Early Years Practitioner), Miss Booth (Early Years Practitioner), Miss Marriott (Teaching Assistant), Mrs Bailey (Teaching Assistant).
