Welcome to Blackwood Nursery

What does your child need for nursery?

  • A named school uniform and shoes
  • A named water proof coat with a hood
  • A named hat and pair of gloves when it's cold
  • A named sunhat when it's warm
  • A named water bottle
  • A named lunch box if they are staying for lunch and no hot meal has been ordered
  • A small plastic bag provided by the school. (This bag is for your child's pictures or letters only.)
  • A smile!


Please note that we have a supply of spare clothes if they are needed.


How to help your child at home

  • Practise putting their coat on independently. This includes putting their arms the right way round if they are inside out. Then practise zipping up their coat.
  • Remind them to tidy up their toys when they have finished playing.
  • Encourage them to be independent - using the toilet, washing their hands, getting a drink when they are thirsty, getting a tissue when needed, peeling their own fruit.
  • To talk in sentences to express their needs, interests and ideas.
  • To understand and respond to simple instructions.
  • To hold a pencil with 2 fingers and a thumb, no longer using a grasp hold.
