Welcome to the Kangaroo Room page. The nursery teacher is Mrs Ambrose. She is supported by Helen Tieney (teaching assistant), Liam McTrustry (childcare practitioner), Dana Davis (childcare practitioner), Alison Lucas (childcare practitioner) and Miss Critchlow (teacher on Thursday).
Linaker Primary offers a unique nursery experience as the school nursery and childcare are fully integrated. The sessions operate in a variety of ways offering parents choice and the flexibility to build a bespoke childcare package to suit themselves and their families. Samantha Rowlands and Rob Taylor are the childcare deputy managers and can be contacted via the Children's Centre on 01704 532343 ext3.
The school nursery session times are 8.45am - 11.45am or 12.30pm - 3.30pm, 5 days per week term time only for those receiving 15 free hours. For those receiving 30 hours the times are 8.45am - 2.45pm, 5 days a week, term time only.
The children wear our school uniform, which is the purple school jumper or cardigan with a white polo shirt and grey trousers, pinafore or jogging bottoms. In the summer term the girls may wear summer dresses in the school colours. For safety reasons children should not wear open toe shoes. Please ensure your child brings a waterproof coat with them and wellingtons as we access our outdoor area in all weathers.
We will be updating regularly about what we have been playing and learning in nursery.
