Moon's Moat Nursery!
Miss Mazgajczyk is our teacher, Mrs Reid is our Nursery Nurse, Mrs Bench is our Teaching Assistant and Mrs Burgoyne is our Foundation Stage Leader. The children may sometimes work with Mrs Burgoyne, Miss Townsend 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!
