Canvey Island Infant School are very excited to be opening our own school nursery! Our nursery is a new purpose-built building which will accommodate 30 children at any one time. We will be well-resourced and will have a large enclosed garden area.
The nursery will be a free-flow setting where children can access the inside and outside areas. There will be many different areas to explore both inside and outside including:
In the summer term, the nursery children, who have a place at CIIS, will spend some time in the Reception classroom and garden to help with their transition into school.
Morning session: 8:30am-11:30am
Lunch Club session: 11:30am-12:30pm
Afternoon session: 12:30pm-3:30pm
For children staying for Lunch Club, there is a fee of £3 for the adult supervision.
The children can either bring in a packed lunch or order a hot school dinner. For those who would like a hot school dinner, there is a fee of £2.30, paid to the school lunch provider Dolce and ordered through ‘The School Grid’.
They will eat their lunch in the main school hall.
Things to bring to Nursery
Arriving at Nursery
Uniform is not compulsory in nursery, however if you choose for your child to wear it:
Parents may purchase sweatshirts, fleeces, white polo and t-shirts featuring the school’s logo from the main school office. You can also purchase water bottles, summer baseball caps, Bronx hats and drawstring bags with the school logo on too.
Uniform can be purchased from the school office on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
In the interest of health and safety, children are not allowed to wear jewellery, including watches and earrings, at any time in the nursery or school.
If you choose for your child not to wear uniform, please ensure they wear suitable clothing and shoes (NO LACES). Please be mindful that your child may come home messy (a sign of a good day!).
Please label all items of clothing with your child’s name.
