Welcome to

Moon's Moat Nursery!


 Miss Mazgajczyk is our teacher, Mrs Reid is our Nursery Nurse and Mrs Burgoyne is our Foundation Stage Leader. The children may sometimes work with Mrs Burgoyne, Mrs Bench and Mr Clissett who work in the Foundation Stage too.


In our class, 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 together to Tapestry. We would love to see them!


Welcome to the Autumn Term!

Our new topic is:

All About Me

These are some of the words we will be learning throughout our topic. It would be great if you could talk about them together at home too.


Every Wednesday, the children will take part in some cooking or food tasting. We would be very grateful for a voluntary contribution of £1 each half term to help this to take place. Thank you.



FRIDAY MORNING and MONDAY AFTERNOON - Children to wear clothes that are suitable for PE, such as jogging bottoms/leggings, t-shirt and sweatshirt (no hoodies please) on these days. Please ensure earrings have been taken out (or earring tape will need to be worn) on PE days and long hair is tied back.
