Giving your child best possible start

CHAPEL Street Infants and Nursery School is a friendly, community infant and nursery school in Dalton. The school has approximately 180 pupils aged between three and seven.

This includes a nursery unit where children can attend 15 hours funded provision. Parents may also wish to purchase additional sessions or lunchtime provision (subject to availability).

With its broad, exciting and stimulating curriculum, excellent and committed teaching staff and governing body, and an outstanding, effective, inclusive and pastoral curriculum, Chapel Street ensures high standards and expectations in all aspects of their children’s education.

Children are eligible to attend the nursery the term after their third birthday.

Pupils thrive and achieve academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually along their journey through the Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1 and beyond. Teaching and learning, the quality of provision and outcomes for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage was judged
outstanding in the school’s last Ofsted Inspection.

Chapel Street Infants and Nursery’s School ethos and Caring Code speaks for itself – Everyone is special – Believe in Yourself.

l At Croftlands Infant and Nursery School staff aim to provide a happy, secure and inclusive learning environment.

The school fosters self-esteem, respect, care and consideration for others and a sense of belonging and pride in the school and the community around it. Staff value creativity, individuality and initiative in a culture of praise and encouragement allowing children to leave with achievements well above national expectations in reading, writing and numbers.

The school is very proud of the many after-school clubs such as gymnastics, dance, orienteering, iPad and art to name just a few and welcome all children to join in. They are also able to offer privately run extended provision on site:

The Breakfast Club opens at 7.30am offering toast and drinks and when the school day begins, children are taken to their classrooms by a member of the Breakfast Club staff.

After School Club children are collected from the main school by a member of the after school club staff. They are looked after until collected, with the latest collection time being 6pm.

The school would love to have the opportunity to meet parents and have the chance to show them around. Please visit the website for more information about the school and the education it offers.

l Pennington Nursery, Cross-a-Moor, Pennington, is a high-quality care provider where children benefit from a lovely outside play area and a superb holiday club.

The club has a huge range of activities, including sports and other outdoor activities. The club is proving so popular it is growing all the time which is easy to understand when children can choose from using Ipads and Wii, arts and crafts, organised sport such as football and nature walks.

The holiday club has a big age range from two to 11 years. It means brothers and sisters get to play together or choose different activities and they also get to play with their friends in safe and supervised surroundings.

It is a great bonus for parents who are mostly working and do not get the holidays their children do. Pennington also has an after school club which again offers children personal choice in what they do, within a clear-cut structure.

The nursery is open throughout the year from 7.30am to 6pm and all the staff are qualified in childcare and are experienced in dealing with the needs of every child.

l Chetwynde Kindergarten believe that happiness is essential to effective learning and development, and that children should grow to love learning and school.

Their aim is to create a homely atmosphere where every child’s needs can be met. Dedicated and caring staff will allow each child to grow, gain confidence and flourish.

This is a magical age and they endeavour to work closely with families to ensure every moment is treasured and shared.

The kindergarten abounds with energy, enthusiasm and a tangible happiness: Chetwynde is very much a community where children feel secure and valued.

Childhood too is valued, and the kindergarten encourages children to use their imagination to create their own games using the excellent play facilities.

Play is central to its approach with Early Years children and the facilities allow for a wide range of physical and creative play.

The kindergarten has designated areas with a multitude of toys and there is an adventure playground for the children to explore. Inside there is sand and water, a dressing-up area, construction and painting areas.

Children can be supervised from 8am and until 6pm, with the school day running from 8.35am until 3.25pm.

The kindergarten also welcomes the government’s nursery vouchers with prices competitive with most local nurseries.

A few places are still available for immediate starters.
