 Applications for Elston Hall Reception should be made through Wolverhampton city council as  attendance at Elston Hall Nursery does not guarantee a place in the Reception year.

Due to further interest, a date for an open evening in January will be announced in the new year, in line with government guidelines.

Aims of EYFS

  • To create a caring and inviting environment in which the child’s own efforts and independence is supported and celebrated, enabling children to develop a sense of belonging.
  • To offer a variety of learning opportunities, that are both fun and intellectually stimulating and in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Development Matters Framework.
  • To develop a partnership with parents and families that will help staff understand the individual needs of the child.
  • To promote an inclusive environment where individual needs are recognised and respected and the diversity of children’s experiences is valued and integral to their development.



Welcome back to those children continuing their Nursery journey and welcome to the children who are just beginning theirs! We hope you have had a safe and enjoyable Christmas holiday.

During the spring term the children who are re-joining us will be encouraged to build upon their achievements from their last term in Nursery whilst setting back into their Nursery routine. All children will have lots of opportunity to develop their critical thinking skills and actively learn through play and exploration.

Our Nursery sessions run each morning from 8:45am-11:45am and each afternoon session from 12:30pm-3:30pm. We operate an open door policy, so please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the Nursery team if you have any questions or messages.The children will extend their learning though a mix of adult led and child initiated sessions indoors and outdoors.
The theme this term is

‘I Wonder What Grows and Changes!’

We also have lots to celebrate this half term too and will be learning all about Chinese New Year, Mother’s Day, Red Nose Day and Easter.

As part of each school day is spent outdoors, we would appreciate it if your child brings a suitable coat every day to wear for outdoor activities (wellingtons for wet weather).

If you do have any queries or concerns regarding your child, please do not hesitate in contacting us. We look forward to a fun-filled year of learning with you and your child.

December 2019

Nursery children travelled together on a steam train in search of Santa. They enjoyed a picnic lunch, sang Christmas songs and saw elephants, a rhino and deer when passing the safari park.
Then.... Santa found us on the train!
