The Orion Nursery

Welcome to Nursery – the team are so excited to be a part of your child’s first steps into their education at Orion.


The Team

Head of EYFS – Mr Ellis

Nursery Teachers – Simon Mumford and Danielle Lindsay

Nursery Nurses – Lydia, Amanda, Benita, Loraine


School Times

Nursery am – 8:45 – 11:45am

Drop-off and pick-up are in the EYFS playground.

Nursery pm – 12:30 – 3:30pm.

Drop-off at school entrance, pick-up in EYFS playground.

It is so important that you arrive to drop off and collect your child on time. At pick up, we ask that you wait until we call your child’s name – please do not come into the nursery until dismissal is finished to ensure the safety of the children.



The school provides fruit, vegetables water and milk for the children each day – there is no need for you to bring in anything.

On Fridays, we have a Fun Friday Snack where the children get to choose a healthy special treat to share with their friends.



At the beginning of each new topic, your child will receive a small craft task for you to complete together at home.

Orion believes in the importance of reading with your child and we ask that you spend at least 5 minutes a day together sharing a book. This helps to foster a love of reading and literacy but also gives you some time together.
