Our after nursery school setting is located in the Ormeau Park and provides wrap around care for 22 children with a staff:child ratio of 1:8. Our emphasis is very much on play and fun. After collecting children from local nursery schools and playgroups (we currently collect from: Rosetta, Knockbreda, Forge, Bethlehem, Holy Rosary and St Bernards), we provide opportunities for rest, relaxation and soothing activitites e.g. art, cookery, opportunities for free play.
Once energy levels rise again, we have the wonderful Ormeau Park and the Play Park right on our doorstep! Children also have the area immediately outside to have endless hours of fun in the fresh air. Circle times, news groups and discussion sessions are introduced as the children adjust to the new pace of combining nursery school with after nursery care.
Whilst we have always enjoyed going further afield during school holiday periods, present circumstances prevent this, so we are truly blessed to have such a wonderful outdoor setting in the heart of the Ormeau Park.
We have registered to become a Forest School and look forward to developing this throughout the Autumn and into the Spring of 2021.
Above all, we ensure all the children have every opportunity to unwind and relax after a busy day at nursery school!
