How we help your child start Windmill Nursery
Starting Nursery is an exciting time and it is important for children to feel happy and secure. To help your child get to know us and the classroom before s/he starts, we provide
  • visit sessions for you and your child
  • a colourful booklet to take home and share
  • an ‘All About Me’ booklet so we can get to know your child quickly.
Why don't you come along to our Windmill Toddlers? This fun community group for children of all ages is held in the School hall on Tuesdays, 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. during term time, (£1.50). It’s a great way to get to know Nursery, Mill Lane School and to meet other parents, carers, staff and children. Everyone is very welcome.
