Welcome to

Moon's Moat Nursery!


Miss Mazgajczyk is the Nursery Teacher, Mrs Reid is our Nursery Nurse and Mrs Burgoyne is the Foundation Stage Leader.


Please email nursery@moonsmoat.worcs.sch.uk or phone to contact us with any questions or queries.


Please share with us any photos, videos or notes of things that you do at home on Tapestry- we would love to see them!



In our nursery, your child will learn and explore through play and active learning. They are encouraged to follow their interests and develop their confidence, independence and self esteem. They will have a balance of adult led activities and child initiated activities during their sessions. We look forward to sharing your child's learning journeys with you as they learn and develop at home and at nursery. Please upload any photos of things that you do at home to Tapestry. We would love to see them!

Screen Free Afternoon

We all need time to unplug. While we all recognize the numerous benefits of mobile devices for children to learn at the moment, it’s equally important to remember the importance of screen-free time. Research has found that too much screen time can have a negative impact on children, affecting their sleep and eating habits, among other things. We would like children to have time to play and relax using other methods. Children need time to be able to explore their physical world, build their curiosity, and expand their imaginations. Therefore, as a school we are asking that you take an afternoon a week as screen-free time. Here are some ideas for you to use during this time.
