Nursery Hub Transition

Welcome to our Nursery Transition Hub.  You will find lots of useful information to help get you and your child ready for Riverside Nursery.  Usually we would share this information with you at our Nursery Parent Induction Evening.  As we are unable to do so this year, please do take the time to read through the information.  We are looking forward to welcoming all our new children and families to Riverside and hope that this page will help you and your child familiarise yourselves with our Nursery Team.

Hi I’m Mrs Godward.

I love being out in the nursery garden whatever the weather. My favourite nursery story is The Snail and The Whale.

I’m Mrs Vanner. I love to read, travel, go walking and spend time with my family and friends. I am really looking forward to meeting you all. 

My name is Miss Adey. I like reading stories and making and creating things.  When we play outside I enjoy looking at plants and flowers and playing with water.

Hi, I'm Ms Paterson. I like painting and other messy activities and enjoy being out in the Nursery garden playing with balls, hoops and making obstacle courses.  I also like relaxing on the sofa to read stories. My favourite books are You Choose and We're Going on a Bear Hunt. 

Hey my name is Miss Jalland. I love singing, dancing and reading stories to all the children. My favourite one to read is "There's a Shark in the Park" because we all get to shout at the top of our lungs and have a good laugh. 

I am Miss Kerridge.

I love exploring outside in the nursery garden, splashing in puddles and reading
