Squirrels Nursery 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Squirrels Nursery 2020-21
We are a happy class of enthusiastic children taught by Mrs Edwards and supported by teaching assistant Mrs Heath. In class we like to be busy, exploring, playing and finding out about things. We update our blog items throughout the year so that you find out what we have been doing.
This document is a useful read to find out more about early years education.
