MICHELE & PAULA COVERING
welcome to KINGS LANGLEY
I have worked within education for the past 17 years as a special needs assistant in secondary schools, numerous nanny jobs and as an early year’s teacher in Beirut, Lebanon. In 2006 I took time out and travelled the world where I learnt and experienced so much. An adventure I will never forget.
I began working for Jack in the box in September 2010 and have been a dedicated and loyal member of the team for 8 years, managing the largest of the six outstanding nurseries- Kings Langley- for 5 years now. I am the designated safeguarding person, Paediatric trained and support our SENCO with special educational needs.
I have a First Class degree in Early Years and Education which not only taught me that being focussed on a goal, even at a later stage in life, is possible but allowed me to apply my passion of the Early Years and put it into practice. I have always believed in learning through play and love watching the children develop through activities that we have set up for their learning.
I hold great passion for my job and I love the idea that I am making a difference to enhance children’s learning and development. I love that I can play a part in carving a foundation for their future journeys through life and I thrive on making positive impacts in a fun and engaging way.
I believe that Children see magic because they look for it so I try to follow in their footsteps and look for it too...every single day.

NURSERY SCHOOL CURRICULUM
At Jack in the Box we follow a structure of learning, development and care for children from birth to five years old. This is called the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and it enables your child to learn through a range of activities.
The EYFS ensures:
- Children learn through play
- Providers work closely with parents
- You are kept up to date on your child’s progress
- The welfare, learning and all-round development of children with different backgrounds and levels of ability, including those with special educational needs and disabilities.
time table key
As children enter the nursery for the start of their session, their name card will be displayed with a YES/NO question for you to answer with your child (this happens daily).
Small Group Time
This is a time for children to work in small groups mainly with their Key Person to work on key skills like shapes, colours, numbers, sounds etc.
Letters and Sounds
Linking Letters and Sounds is scheme where the children have a chance to explore sounds, rhyming and initial letters sounds using the Jolly Phonics programme.
C.I.P & A.I.A
Children are supported during Child Initiated Play (C.I.P) is where the children choose to free play within the nursery this includes both indoor and outdoor play. During this time Adult Initiated Activities (A.I.A) are available for the children to choose.
This is a sociable occasion where children eat with practitioners and peers. Children then have the opportunity to look at books with their peers. We promote healthy eating. Please look at our lunch box idea leaflet HERE
Every day children are provided with fruit, water, milk and other snacks throughout their session. Please bring to each session a piece of fruit and/or vegetable for your child to share.
All activities your child has available to them are linked to the potential learning following the Early Years Foundation Stage (E.Y.F.S). Parents and carers are welcome to share their child's learning journal with their child's key person at any time or during our termly open classrooms.
