Mount Pleasant Primary School


Welcome and thank you for visiting our Nursery page!

Mount Pleasant Nursery aims to give children the very best possible start to their education, laying the foundations for building friendships and relationships, igniting their curiosity and sowing the seeds for a life-long love of learning.

Our whole school vision of "Believe it, Achieve it" is driven by our three key school values of Relationships, Respect and Resilience and we encourage these as part of our everyday life in Nursery as well as adding in our heart values (happiness, honesty, positivity, pride, compassion, aspirations)which unlock these. 

We have a dedicated and experienced staff team who nurture and care for the children, making their first experiences of school exciting and enjoyable.

We have created a learning environment that is welcoming, stimulating and that promotes active play. Play is essential for children's development across all areas and we believe our littlest learners should be as active as possible. Through play, the children grow in confidence as they learn, explore and relate to others around them, developing wonderful relationships. 

We are proud to send children into Reception class with an understanding that being kind, following rules and having fun with their friends is all part of their learning journey.

Take a little look at Nursery in action!



A typical session in Nursery

Visual timetable

We have a visual timetable which is used by the children so that they can see what is happening each day. Activities include:

Self registration -to develop independence the children find their name, hang up their coats and bags and put away their water bottle.

Playtime - the children access the variety of activities in Nursery playing with their friends and adults in the setting.

Calendar - the children talk about the days of the week and observe how the weather changes.

Little Wandle Phonics - the children learn about the sounds around them, preparing them to become readers,

Learning Adventure - the children learn about their world, seasons and celebrations, often using stories to excite them.

Storytime - our reading motto is "Children who read well, do well" and sharing books with our children in Nursery is where the magic starts to inspire them to love reading.

Snack and chat - this is the perfect opportunity to develop our manners and our social skills whilst enjoying the free milk and fruit provided.

Once a week we invite parents in for a 30 minute Library Session where children can borrow a book to share at home. We then have story time followed by learning Makaton.

Nursery Fund

We ask for a small contribution from our families in the form of 'Nursery Fund'. This is the equivalent of £2.00 per week and goes some way to providing enrichment experiences for the children. Examples of these may include:

A visit from Angie's Animal Antics

A visit to the Dudley Zoo Under 5's family day

Purchasing ingredients for food tasting and/or cooking 

Purchasing resources to enhance our Learning Adventures for individual/group interests
