Welcome to Bishop Monkton C of E Nursery


Our class name is Wrens!




We are a small, friendly nursery and our aim is to offer a safe and caring, exciting and stimulating learning environment, with many challenges and new experiences which will enable your child to leave us confident, independent and ready for full time education.


Your child’s individual needs and well being are paramount to us!


We will nurture your child’s interests and endeavour to incorporate them into every area of learning. We will support self identity and self worth. As well as self chosen activities, we plan activities that are led by your child’s individual next steps and the EYFS development matters age appropriate statements, in the areas:


Personal, Social and Emotional development

Communication and Language

Physical Development



The World

Expressive Arts and Design



As a Church of England school we promote Christian values alongside the British values of:

Individual Liberty

Mutual Respect
Rule of Law

Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs


This is done discretely, on a daily basis through our play.



Your child’s future starts here….............Come and visit us!

Tadpoles and seedlings.....

After careful monitoring by the children we have noticed that one of our tadpoles has started to grow back legs, hopefully we will soon have froglets.


Look at our seedlings! our home made greenhouses worked a treat, we will have to separate them into bigger pots now.



Wrens new display!

We have a new display outside Mrs Cowlings office. We have been printing with squares and circles and writing our names.



Sunny days......

Snack in the sun and cloud watching.......



As part of our Big Project 'get up and grow' we have now planted seeds, we recycled food containers to make mini greenhouses. When the plants are big enough we will put them in the planters behind nursery and watch the fruit, vegetables and salad grow, then hopefully we will sample some of our hard work....


Budding Photographers....

We used the ipads to take photos of each other and things we like in the nursery......



Frog Spawn

We have tadpoles in nursery at the moment. We watched them change from frog spawn into tadpoles......



Easter Service

We sang 'Tiny Tim' at the Easter Church service at St Johns Church, Bishop Monkton. Then had a fun Easter egg hunt when we got back....
