We have a child-centred approach to experiential learning. Children at Dollar Nursery are encouraged to choose and plan activities and learning experiences for themselves, to be fully involved in their own learning.
Each child has their own key worker who tracks, monitors and assesses their key children’s development, in order to plan the next steps. They will observe and assess your child’s development and fully involve you at all times.
Your child will have a book to capture all of their special moments during their time with us, as well as daily communication with staff.
We appreciate that it is a huge decision to send your child to nursery. We want this to be a happy occasion for all.
As part of this process, we have a member of staff dedicated to ensuring your child settles into nursery life. We encourage as many complimentary settling-in sessions as required. Your child will receive one to one care until they are completely settled and familiar with all aspects of the day.
We encourage all parents to be actively involved in all aspects of care at Dollar Nursery School on a daily basis.
The nursery offers a healthy drink and snack in the morning and afternoon.
Lunches are between 12-12.30pm and are provided by the parents/carers or you can opt into our hot meal provision.
