This is our key workers in the preschool room, Miss Stanley the nursery manager and Hooty Owl keyworker, Miss Larcombe Smiley Squirrel key worker and Miss Stokoe Busy Bee keyworker. 




The keyworkers in Baby Bunnies are Miss Lyons and Mrs Lightfoot.

We currently have four keyworker groups in nursery. The Hooty Owls, Smiley Squirrels and Busy Bees are our Pre-school children who are in their last nursery year getting ready for reception. The Baby Bunnies are the start of our two year old provision.


In Nursery, we follow our planned curriculum alongside following the interests of the children.  We work hard to provide rich and engaging opportunities to allow the children to learn and explore through play. We have lots of different areas of learning both in our indoor and outdoor classroom.


Starting the nursery day

  • Morning Session begins at 8.45am and ends at 11.45am.
  • Lunch begins at 11.45am and ends at 12.30pm. This is only available for our all day children.
  • Afternoon session begins at 12.30pm and ends at 3.30pm


When you drop your child at nursery, they will independently make their way into the classroom, put their coat and bag on their peg and choose an activity. This will help the children build their confidence and independence.


Snack Time

For snack each child will be offered a healthy snack, a peice of fruit and a choice of milk or water. We offer this for a small cost of £1.50 per week.

School Uniform

Your child is advised to wear the correct Beechwood uniform each day to prepare them for reception. 

This includes a white polo t-shirt, a red jumper, black/ grey trousers or a black/grey skirt with black/grey tights and black school shoes.

Please label all of your childs clothes. 

Within nursery, the children have acess to water play and lots of creative activies so we encourage you to send your child in with clean, spare clothes. 



As a school, we use an app called 'Class Dojo' to reward children's behaviour in school, to keep parents up to date with class news, and to contact parents through a private message service. As a parent, you will receive a login from your child's class teacher and will receive notifications for rewards and news posts.






As a school, we take safeguarding very seriously. This includes online safety and we are very aware that many children enjoy playing on tablets, phones and even Alexa! 

Please help us to ensure your children are safe when online by clicking on the image below and keeping up to date with tips and ideas on internet safety:
