Your child’s journey through Myatt Garden’s Nursery
The EYFS Garden Party
A HUGE thank you! What a fantastic EYFS Garden Party on Saturday and we couldn’t have done it without you! Parents worked so hard to get raffle prizes, donate prizes and toys, bake cakes, make decorations, help set up in the morning, man the stalls and stay late to help with the clearing up and of course coming along to join the fun…you’re all fantastic! I hope all the children will remember it for years to come. It was so wonderful to see all their smiling faces enjoying the day.
We managed to raise nearly £1300!!! The first thing we will be using the money for is to supplement the cost of the seaside trip. We’ll then be using the rest of the money to make sure we can always go above and beyond what schools can normally provide, making sure children at Myatt Garden EYFS get exciting hands on experiences and learning opportunities that they’ll always remember.
As always…we couldn’t do it without YOU!
The EYFS Team
We hope you will enjoy some pictures of us enjoying our chicks!
They include eggs in the incubator, hatching, growing, swimming, saying goodbye to them and finally a picture of the ducklings in their new home at the farm.

Making cranachan for Burns night
Nursery celebrated the Muslim festival of Eid-al-Adha. We were lucky enough to have so much support from our Muslim parents and staff through offering skills, knowledge and lots of delicious food to share! Have a look at some of the exciting things we got up to: mehndi patterns, lentil new moons, Eid cards, wearing special clothes and sharing and eating lots and lots of food! “Eid Mubarak!” to you from everyone at nursery!
Morning session is 9 am – 11.30 am
Afternoon session is 12.45 pm – 3.15 pm
At the start of the session children arrive in their own classroom and self register. They are then free to engage in play based activities across both nursery classes for the first half an hour. The garden is then opened (no matter the season or the weather!) and children can move between indoors/outdoors and both nursery classes as they choose. We have six nursery staff, at any one time one member of staff will be leading an activity in each classroom and another will be leading an outdoor activity. The remaining adults will be supporting children to get the most out of self chosen activities that have been carefully planned around children’s developmental needs and interests. Half an hour before the end of nursery, staff use a tambourine to signal tidy up time. Children return to their own classes for tidy up time, which is followed by more structured class and group activities including story times, simple maths and a weekly music session with a pianist.
