Organisation

Thornton Heath Nursery School Organisation

  • Your child will be in one of the four nursery classes: Caterpillars, Bumble Bees, Butterflies or Ladybirds.
  • Your child will be allocated a ‘Key Person’; this person will talk to you about your child’s development and develop a significant relationship with your child.
  • The Key Person should be the person you talk to if you have any questions or concerns.  We want you to bring your child into the nursery at the start of the session to say “Hello”. This is also where you will need to collect him / her after story time at the end of the session.  The staff in the classrooms will be collectively responsible for your child.
